|This is Delyte. Our person had a dog, many years before we were born. The dog was integrated into her household as a young puppy with two older and very antisocial cats, who taught her to keep her distance and respect cats. Ten years later, when both of those cats had died, she got a tiny kitten who was born outside around here. The kitten was at first frightened of the dog, but the dog, who had had puppies before she was spayed, adopted the kitten as her child, and they were unbelievably close until the dog died, 4 years later. They played adorably and the dog washed the kitten constantly.
Since your dog is a male, you probably won't get the same response, but there should be some kind of bonding between them, and they should get along okay and maybe even become very close. If the dog knows to respect cats, and the kitten knows that dogs are not the enemy, that is a long way towards getting along. There may be some hissing at the beginning, and you will have to remember to spread your affection equally to dog and kitten, or there will be jealousy.
Good luck! Lucky kitten to find a home!
