As you can see below, my poor cat, Chipper, is spending most of his time perched on top of the gate to the kitchen. Dutch hasn’t made much progress in accepting him. The best I’ve seen so far is a temporary stand-off, with Dutch eventually barking at him and scaring him off. I’ve been watching them stare at each other, then when Dutch starts barking at Chipper, I pick up Dutch and we move to another area, where he is tethered to me and can’t interact with the cat. He seems fascinated by the cat, but doesn’t know how to be friends yet. My cat is very friendly. Any suggestions?
