hi i have just got a 7 week old kitten and i have a 13 old staff and a 1yr staff they both are ok with cats but my kitten is relly scard of my younger staff and if i am holding my kitten and my dog comes in the same room the kitten spits, mones, scraches and bites me and then runs off and hides, my younge staff is verry good with the kitten and just wants 2 lick it and mother it but the kitten wont give it a chance 2 get near her

is there a way i can help them become friends

Answer by Kate
i don't know how you initially introduced your two pets but there is a process which you could try now anyway. it does take a little time and effort on your part but does help the animals to build confidence in each other without the fear of attack etc.

The process is described here

best wishes Kate
