Dear Daisy

The kitten will sort himout. Always remember that if you introduce them that the cat should have an escape route.

I had a cat for about 5 years and then introduced my little daxie puppy to her, and to be frank my daxie was a little bugger, super naughty when he was a baby.

But Layla, the cat soon sorted him out and she was the " pack leader"  in the house. I just let the puppy into the house and kept him in one room at a time before giving him free run of the house. I let the cat have her usual routine and the dog was supervised. It took about 3 days at most before they were sleeping snuggled up together at night in the same bed.

Good luck !
