I really appreciate your lists and information here.

Our family has two older cats whom we love and how to get rid of house ants in kitchen then we recently had a stray dog show up at how to get rid of house ants in kitchen our home. I thought he was a pit bull mix but our how to get rid of house ants in kitchen vet said probably basenji and akita mix. Anyways our kids loved him and he seemed very sweet. Still I was really nervous what he might do to how to get rid of house ants in kitchen our indoor cats who slip out sometimes, especially with three young children running in and out. We finally decided to take the seemingly sweet doggie to how to get rid of house ants in kitchen the no-kill shelter where he could find a better home.

But after reading this list and some posts by other how to get rid of house ants in kitchen readers, I feel better as it confirms that something bad really how to get rid of house ants in kitchen could’ve happened to our kitties (and even far worse, our 2 yo little girl).

The right person will adopt him one day soon hopefully, and we will find a better dog fit for our how to get rid of house ants in kitchen family.

When we bought our cat at 10 weeks old, 3 years ago, we already had a 5 year old jack russell dog, with a naturally high prey drive, and a 4 year old flatcoat retriever bitch, who is soppy but inquisitive. The kitten had been raised in a house with dogs how to get rid of house ants in kitchen and was totally unfazed when he met ours. The jack russell definitely wanted to have a go, in what I would call a semi playful way which how to get rid of house ants in kitchen could have turned nasty. The retriever wanted to make friends and play.

I introduced the jack russell under complete control, holding him so that he could not attack the cat how to get rid of house ants in kitchen – he calmed down extremely quickly. Within 24 hours there was no problem at all and how to get rid of house ants in kitchen the three animals were completely relaxed in each other’s company. The kitten started to suckle the retriever (no milk of course) and the retriever was completely cool about this, though we discouraged it by gently detaching the kitten, so that it stopped after a week or so. Several years later and they all run in the garden how to get rid of house ants in kitchen together and the cat sometimes follows us down the lane how to get rid of house ants in kitchen for a walk. Hate each other? Happily, in this household they seem to be pretty fond of how to get rid of house ants in kitchen one another. We have never had a single dog vs. Cat incident and there are regular and hilarious mock fights how to get rid of house ants in kitchen between the cat and the retriever. The jack russell is more aloof and only plays with how to get rid of house ants in kitchen the other dog!

It’s pretty funny how some dog behave with cats, I have a 12 year old mastiff x ridgeback and how to get rid of house ants in kitchen a 1 year old mastiff x ridgeback (both most likely have many other breeds in them). The older one never liked cats when we were out how to get rid of house ants in kitchen walking, always getting very panicky when we passed one, and it was always difficult to settle her down, but two years ago I got a little kitten. To my surprise it only took about a week for how to get rid of house ants in kitchen the dog to be okay with the cat, from then on they were very well behaved… Then comes the puppy! She is meant to be the same breed as the how to get rid of house ants in kitchen older dog except she cannot help herself when it comes how to get rid of house ants in kitchen to the cat she has to chase it! Even when we manage to get her under control, you can see it in her body language how bad how to get rid of house ants in kitchen she wants the cat! The funny thing is the puppy has had the cat how to get rid of house ants in kitchen around its whole life, so far… Except she behaves like she has never seen a kitten how to get rid of house ants in kitchen before! But the old girl who has only had the cat how to get rid of house ants in kitchen in her life for two years get along with the how to get rid of house ants in kitchen cat like they are old mates from way back! It puts a bit of a twist on the whole how to get rid of house ants in kitchen dogs are okay with cats if they grow up with how to get rid of house ants in kitchen them theory! Aswell as the breed theory!

We recently rescued a year old rhodesian ridgeback/samoyed cross and she’s great with cats. She asolutely loves our little kitty luna… Sadly our year old cat is a little less tolerant how to get rid of house ants in kitchen of the dog. We just got the dog and luna is not sure how to get rid of house ants in kitchen why this big tan thing is in the house cuddling how to get rid of house ants in kitchen up to HER masters haha. I think it’s all in how you raise and train the dog. Dog’s with high prey drive’s just need to be taught not to view the how to get rid of house ants in kitchen cat as prey but as a companion and member of how to get rid of house ants in kitchen the family. When we introduced our dog brandi to luna we made how to get rid of house ants in kitchen sure it was in a very controlled setting and gave how to get rid of house ants in kitchen both animals treats and praises to make the experience a how to get rid of house ants in kitchen positive one and luna is slowly but surely coming around. I know eventually they’ll be best furry gal pals.

Saying some dogs are this or some dogs are that how to get rid of house ants in kitchen is generalizing an individual animal on the basis of the how to get rid of house ants in kitchen over arching concept of breed. Like pitbulls for example, people have this misconception that they are inheritedly vicious dogs how to get rid of house ants in kitchen but they aren’t, most are sweet gentle dogs that carry the negative connotation how to get rid of house ants in kitchen of a select few. Any undesirable behaviors really boil down to the owners and how to get rid of house ants in kitchen how they treat their dogs. Dogs, cats, children – they are all products of their environment, the great thing about dogs is with love, attention and training you can perfect their doggy manners and how to get rid of house ants in kitchen ensure a harmonious family unit with human, canine and feline alike.

We adopted a papillon mix from the shelter about two how to get rid of house ants in kitchen years ago. He looks just like a papillon but he’s oversized, and I’ve been trying to figure out what other breed he’s mixed with. The shelter said terrier, and based on this hub I think they’re right.

We’ve got two cats that never socialized properly with the how to get rid of house ants in kitchen dog from the beginning, so now they have to live separately from the dog. It works OK because the master suite is large and how to get rid of house ants in kitchen has basically two bedrooms and a bathroom and hallway (it’s just the way the addition was put on this how to get rid of house ants in kitchen house) so the cats basically live in an "apartment" and the dog gets the rest of the house and how to get rid of house ants in kitchen the outside.

The dog gets very excited to see the cats, and rushes into the bedroom whenever he gets a chance. It seems like at first he wanted to play with how to get rid of house ants in kitchen them, but they would have nothing of it so he got how to get rid of house ants in kitchen "offended" and started barking at them. Now it’s just a pattern: he rushes into the bedroom and flushes the cats wherever how to get rid of house ants in kitchen they are, they run under the bed, he can’t get a good foothold on the floor (ha ha) so he can never actually get to them before they how to get rid of house ants in kitchen get under the bed, but then he sits and barks at them while they how to get rid of house ants in kitchen growl and hiss at him.

While annoying, I never thought it was dangerous, as the cats are about 11 lbs and the dog how to get rid of house ants in kitchen is 20. But more recently, I’ve noticed that if the dog does get his nose how to get rid of house ants in kitchen near the cat, I find a clump of fur on the ground. The cat never yowls, never swipes (I wish she would!) so I don’t think she’s ever hurt, but I’ve become worried that the dog is biting at her how to get rid of house ants in kitchen rather than trying to play with her. He does chase squirrels in the yard so I know how to get rid of house ants in kitchen he’s got the instinct to chase small animals.

But two days ago the dog was outside and there how to get rid of house ants in kitchen were a bunch of sparrows on the ground. All of them flew away but one, and the dog immediately grabbed at the sparrow and started how to get rid of house ants in kitchen mouthing it. He wouldn’t let go and ran away with it and tried how to get rid of house ants in kitchen to take it into the house. It was his first "kill", I think, and it upset me a whole lot, and now I’m afraid he may actually harm the cats.

Don’t quite know what to do. I respect natural instinct and if he does have terrier how to get rid of house ants in kitchen in him, that would explain everything. But I love the dog and feel an obligation to how to get rid of house ants in kitchen all the animals I’ve adopted to keep them for life. So … Is the separation technique working, and will it work for the lifetime of the pets? Or can I somehow train the dog to get along how to get rid of house ants in kitchen with the cats?

We recently purchased an 8 month old english bull terrier. She is so well behaved for a puppy. No messes in the house, somewhat excited especially for walks. But she will outgrow this, but she has this thing about cats. The people that had her before us had cats and how to get rid of house ants in kitchen separated them because of her behavior. She absolutely fixates on them and is perfectly poised and how to get rid of house ants in kitchen doesn’t move when they are around. On a walk the other night my husband had to how to get rid of house ants in kitchen pull her away from the area where a cat was how to get rid of house ants in kitchen loose. I mean she was like a statue, never moved. It was kind of scary to think what she would how to get rid of house ants in kitchen do is she were loose. She was in a house with 5 small children, so we know she is good with kids. No other problems at all except she thinks she a how to get rid of house ants in kitchen lap dog and is clingy right now. Does anyone know what we should do or have you how to get rid of house ants in kitchen had this kind of behavior and what did you do. We don’t have cats, never wanted one, really don’t care for them because they go to the bathroom how to get rid of house ants in kitchen all over our yard, but i certainly don’t want a cat-killer on my hands and the cats do tend to how to get rid of house ants in kitchen get in our fenced in back yard. Any advise?? Should i warn neighbors to keep their cats at home how to get rid of house ants in kitchen and what happens if she gets one?? I mean she is in her yard and they are how to get rid of house ants in kitchen considered "wild animals". Any advise would be appreciated
