yes, the cat is undecided at this point, and the pup instinctively knows to leave him alone. Both are interested in each other, but have had no contact. The cat will come around when he figures out this is a playing machine.
He got up on the chair with me in his regular spot when the pup was asleep at my side, so he isn't scared of her.. just cautious at this point.
Proud Daddy here.. trying to get the pup to play with his "Man" sized toys.
He is a bit bewildered why she can't join in the fun.. of course, the toy is bigger than she is.
He put her in her place ONCE, when she explored with her teeth, as pups do, on his, er, "daddyhood". I don't blame him.
Other wise, he doesn't seem to be bothered by her, and lets her chase him and climb on him. He ignores her whining too. LOL! I got her for him for when the old girl passes. She is very motherly with the pup, but knows not to coddle.
They know... I haven't a clue...
