They actually do get along well.

I have found that many dogs, whether terriers or not, can be trained to get along with cats. If the cat runs, the dog may chase. But, I have kept my australian on a leash and calmly walked up to cats that are used to dogs and...just wait. Don't encourage your dog or the cat. Let them visit from a ways away. Don't hold the cat...let him have a way out. It may take more time with older animals, but watch the body language and be patient. Attacking is not to be permitted. Best of luck.
