|This is Jellybean's human sister Victoria. Unfortunately I have a not so great story from personal experience. My parents are really the cat people around here. DX
I've wanted a dog forever, but have never been allowed because Jellybean cannot stand other animals whatsoever. A couple of weekends ago, my friend came over for a visit and brought his GSD Sarah. Sarah is called Sweetie. She is my friend's guide dog, so naturally she is well behaved in any situation. Therefore, my family and I wern't worried about her around Jellybean. Sweetie came over and just lay down most of the time and minded her own business, but I guess it upset Jellybean that Sweetie was getting all the lovin, so we went out for a day and came back at night, I went to feed Jellybean, and she did not touch a single kibble. Therefore, I think a lot of times, you need to flip the coin and train the cat to accept a dog. With puppies, they just wanna play. They have no intention of hurting the cat. With them, it's a matter of training them how to play nicely. For me, flipping the coin can be more challenging.
hope this helps
