Not Everyone Is Happy
And worse yet - Lady was joining in at first. That didn't surprise me a bit. Lady has a very strong prey drive, so I knew if Katie took to chasing the cat, Lady would be like "Oh! We're going to chase the cat? Awesome! Let's chase the cat!" Hopefully I've now nipped that in the bud, as Lady and I have had several very stern discussions about this and I think she's gotten the message.
Several times, when Lucy has gotten brave and walked past Katie in the hallway, Katie has just wagged her tail and then turned away. But at other times, Katie seems just a bit too interested. It's hard to know when to supervise and intervene, and when to let the two of them work it out on their own. I 'mostly' trust Katie not to hurt her, but don't want to take any chances. Any advice from those of you who have been through this before?
