Aspen was like this with my cat when I first adopted her. I thought my poor cat would never again be able to step foot on the floor, but over time it got better. It took at least a month for the fixation to go away, and then probably another 2-3 months for her to stop chasing the cat at every possible opportunity. My cat had been declawed by whoever owned him before me, so the poor guy couldn't even give Aspen a decent swipe to tell her to back off!

Wow. I wish my cats would get along with my pups that well! I have to keep them separate all the time because Maggie just doesn't get it. She has gotten scratched so many times but still pounces at the cats and corners them... The reason for 5 baby gates in my house...

When we had our cats who were older by the time we got M & M, we made the upstairs off limits to the pups so the cats would have a place to feel safe. However, the cats could come downstairs whenever they chose.
We taught M & M to sit / stay and not chase them or approach them at all. They got treated for being good.
Not sure that is the best method though, they never did become buddy / buddy.
Looks like your kitty will do just fine
And things will calm down eventually.

That kitty looks like he's doing a lot better than ours. We have a 6 & 7 year old and they're currently NOT very happy about little 3 month old Bruno. He quickly learned to leave the older one alone, but the other one wasn't quite as direct at first until he finally got too curious and got a swat from her too. I think he's getting tired of the older one growling and hissing at him because he's started getting closer to her and "talking back" to her now. Nothing aggressive just a curious and/or frustrated vocalization as if to say "what? I'm not doing anything you silly cat".

Kitty doesn't look nervous at all. She looks very confident. Looks to me like she's putting Deacon in his place and establishing herself in the household.

I have a 2 year old female cat (Abby) and we adopted a female boxer puppy (Serena) two months ago. Serena is now 17 weeks old, and she & Abby interact almost exactly the way yours do in the video. Mine also have started playing with each other now.

Yours look like they will become friends too.
