    We're hopefully getting two new kittens this week (a boy and a girl) and I need some tips on the best way to introduce them to our 6 year old whippet cross.
    She unfortunately is a bit of a chaser but we have had cats before that she was okay with, she was definitely under their little retractable thumbs. Any advice is appreciated!

    Just be very careful and always supervise them if they're together. I read of someone recently who's dog chased, caught and killed their new baby kitten, so care always needs to be taken if the dog is too rough. Just introduce them slowly, maybe let them see each other but not let them get to each other. Then let the kitten go up to the dog but keep a hold of the dog. Once the cat gets bigger the dog may be less likely to try anything, I find cats usually seem to end up the boss!

    Whatever you do do not put them both in a cardboard box until they get used to each other. Trust me.
