|The cats have there own "room" which is blocked off from the puppy by a gate. They have there own litterbox, water dish, ect in there safe room. In the "common" area they have cat trees. The girls (my 2 cats) ignor Khan untill he is right in there face. They are acully really good with him, they dont slink around or act nuts. But he wants to play and chase them and obviously they dont want to play. I am worried the cats are going to beat the crap out of him (they will, too. There not shy) then Khan will learn to fear them, and thats not what i want.
Ive had the girls for almost 6 years. They have delt with dogs/puppys before. My first dog Bowser only had to be smacked once by the cat to "get it" and wasnt afraid. Id rather they dont "teach" Khan the same way because he is still young and in his fear imprinting stage.
Cockers wernt bred to "kill" small game, but I do beleve any gundog has a good chase drive. Khan just is playing, but i want to curb this behaviour for many reasons. He WILL be bigger then them someday, and if one of the cats fight him, they will lose. Also i dont want him taking off after strays, ect.
"leave it" sounds like a good idea.
