    Does anyone have any experience in introducing a new bulldog to their cat? Any tips on how to make sure it goes well?

    -image-jpg-image-jpgHi Kathleen, I don't know if I'll be of any help as we got our two EB a year after we got our cat, and we just let them loose around each other, but the puppies were way to energetic for my cat, and she would just run away from them. They would try and pounce on her to play with her, and then she would swat at them, or try boxing them with her paws, she couldn't hurt them because she's declawed. She just runs from the dogs when she sees them coming and will go for higher ground, on her cat tower, or she runs upstairs where the bedrooms are, and the dogs don't go upstairs, so she's safe from them up there. She either likes to sleep in my towel closet, or in my night table shelf. The only time she will go near the dogs is at night time when they are crated, and then she lays on top of their crates and teases them through the bars with her paw, as if to say Nah Nah you can't get me now. Lol. The dogs would never hurt her, they just want to play with her, but she runs away, so I guess you can say they just tolerate each other.

    Ha!ha! That sounds typical. I would say that you have to let the cat handle it-and make sure the cat has high ground to escape to! Is this a pup-? that could make a difference, if adult dog-it may not like cats.-catwantedposter-jpg

    I was going to say, I've had cats & dogs together for years… usually the cat dictates how things are going to go… LOL I lucked out w/our cats they seemed fine w/dogs as long as they weren't chasing them for hours on end. One good swat to the face would take care of that. Just be extra vigilant if the cat still has it's claws...

    Same here, we were so afraid that Vegas was going to be too rough with getting a kitten, in no time at all the cat dictated the relationship. They get a long fine.

    I'll have to echo what others have said - I've had a combo of 3 different bulldogs with 3 different kitties (clawed and declawed) and had NO problems with any of them. The "introductory" period was very minimal because cats can move a lot faster and to a lot higher places than a bulldog so if they don't like something, they can get out of there. That said, for the most part, our cats and bullies love to hang around each other. Linus would chase our orange tabby - and sometimes he let Linus catch him just to be a sport, I kid you not. This is a 80 pound bulldog and a 7 pound cat! They were funny together. Anyway -- I wouldn't worry and a common sense approach should be enough to ensure years of friendship!

    We introduced slowly when we brought Harlea home. We left he in the carrier we had and let the kitties sniff her. After about 15 minutes we let her out and the results were mixed. 1 cat loves to play with her, 1 doesn't want to be near her and the last 2 could care less as long as she isn't chasing them.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Thanks everyone! I've looked around several sites and they all seem to have their own opinion on how it should be done. I hope it all goes as well as you've said. My cat is definitely queen of the castle so I'm sure she would act like you said your cats did and let the puppy know who's boss.

    We had my kitty for a year before we got Gia. The cat despises her lol. She spits swats and growls at her whenever she tries to get near her. When Gia is sleeping Miley will sneak up to her and swat her in the face lol. So Gia is pretty scared of her.
