New cat hisses and attacks my dog
My cat hisses and attacks my dog with no reason or provocation. I found a kitten probably around six months old on top of a tree and brought him in. He seemed very calm and social.
I have a small dog. The first two days, I introduced them very slowly and for short periods of time so that both wouldn't stress out.
I now let them be in the same room a little longer with my supervision always. But even if I tell my dog to just stay, sit, or lie down, the cat will slowly approach him, hissing with a low meow, then will strike once or twice with his paw.
Why? And what can I do to get them to get along? Please, I need help.
