I am moving in with my boyfriend, and he has a 18 lbs cat that is about 5 or 6. I have a 5 lbs Toy Fox Terrier that is 7. Both of our animals have never lived with other animals. My TFT gets really nervous around other dogs and usually starts growling. The two animals met and the cat was nervous and hissing at my TFT. Does anyone have any ideas how we can help them learn to like each other? I'm really nervous that the cat will hurt my dog.

Ya gotta love it as a Toy Fox Terrier owner we are so worried about our babies. I think that in time the cat will adjust. I brought my puppy into a house with two boston terriers both 14 years old the female never liked or tolorated other animalls. Even though in her old age she eventually accepted the puppy the puppy learned what to do and not to do. I have photos of them in the same bed shorty before my female boston passed which was only a few weeks ago.
