|I have 2 cats, a ragdoll and a tuxedo, both female. When Polly was very small, the largest cat, Aiko, bullied her. Now, Polly bullies Aiko. I think they are fighting for alpha female, now that the dog and cat are nearly the same size. Cat is 15 lb, dog is 12 lb.
Hello Kitty, the ragdoll, was Polly's best friend, and now Polly bites her.
The cats fights back. Our vet says it's normal!
I think they are all establishing boundaries, as is with your cats and schnauzer.
The cats will be fine, they won't let the dog hurt them. You should also assist by gently scolding both parties when a fight breaks out... I hope I have helped a little.
