We have a very loving and fairly spoiled female chihuahua, Bessie, who has been a wonderful part of our little family since she was small enough to bring home. She's always been a companion dog, very friendly, always interested in what we are doing, energetic, and almost pushy demanding attention of us and our guests. We take her with us places (family and friends houses) when we can, and noticed she LOVED to play with cats, actually preferred them over other dogs when given the choice! (When we first brought her home we had been staying with family temporarily and they had an older adult cat as well, they would play sometimes, but the cat being about 10 or so would lose interest fast and Bessie would be SO disappointed) So we made the choice to get a kitten to add to our family and brought her home when she was 8 weeks, about two to three weeks ago. Bessie LOVES playing with her! They wrestle and snuggle, and although Bessie's got moments of jealousy, for the most part she seems to really enjoy having a buddy! We do our best to treat them "fairly," the biggest example of this is feeding time. Bessie always has eaten the same dry food, and treats. Sometimes some rice or other dog friendly food if we make it, but not really ever wet food. I had read though that kittens need the added fat of a wet food in their diet, and we cant give the cat special food and not the dog, so they both have been getting portions (the cat 1/4 a can kitten food, and the dog 1/3 of a container of the little ceaser wet foods) once to twice a day. Bessie has stopped eating her dry food completely, even when mixed with her wet stuff, and is basically refusing to eat anything crunchy now even treats and bones unless we spend a LOT of time encouraging her (aka holding the bone for her to chew and she still loses interest fast where before she was ALL about eating all she could!) She's been wanting to sit with us less, and sleeping with us much less. This morning we woke up to several dog toys in bed with her us and the cat, and Bessie carrying a toy around slightly shaking and with her tail between her legs. She's always had need to attempt to be the dominant one, and never been a picky eater. We are at a loss for what to do and are afraid we may have to get rid of the cat since this is getting increasingly worse since the cat came home. Any suggestions to help us keep our fur family together?
