"When we brought home a kitten, we kept her in a safe room for about a week. When we did introduce the dogs, it was through the closed door first. We then introduced them through a baby gate, where they could see each other but were not…"
"I would have your dogs drag a leash in the house while introducing the kitten so you can more easily stop a chase. Put the dogs in a closed room at first and let the cat roam until he/she is comfortable. Then put the cat away while the dogs check…"
So I am going to have a brand new kitty to join my corgi nation. The kitty is a 12 weeks old Ragdoll and he is passive and mellow. He is tiny and soft, just like a doll.However, my corgis have their character. Maggie is bossy and protective to her belonging, that include food, bone and me. Moe is a follower, but he only follow me. He just want to stay beside me. Markus is jealous guy, he want to play all the time and stay beside my feet.

"I was looking into adopting a ragdoll not too long ago and I learned that they are quite passive and friendly for cats - to the point where they might not stand up for themselves enough if bullied by another pet.
If your corgis are the gentle sort I…"
"Do you have a PetSmart (or a PetCo) near you? I know PetSmart does adoptions from local rescues, I'm assuming PetCo does also. Our PetSmart has listed the history that they know of the cat including who/what they are good with…"
"Thank you everyone for your input. I will bring my corgis to local shelter to have a look. I did look at the cat photos from shelter. But all seems angry cat. But I guess it is just bad picture and bad mood. I will ask my friend to borrow her cat to…"
"My Vet recommended an American Shorthair for the sweet personality. Took her advice and got an absolute people and dog (at least Tracker, never tried her on others) lover. She does, however, compete with Tracker for shedding the most."
"Rescue a kitten! I would go to an adoption event and bring all three of your dogs. Find a kitten that is confident and brave and doesn't mind the wet noses, seems active and playful, and is alert. We did just that and wow, did…"
"I'd suggest heading to your local animal shelter and looking at the cats that they have for adoption. :) They may have the breed you're looking for, or perhaps another that you hadn't considered that has a great…"
"Jane....that's funny! The cat I want is a red/white one. I have a gray, a gray/white tiger and a black. I was looking to find a red/white when Oliver, the black cat, walked in the door last year. So be it....he…"
"Jane...so cute! I love red cats. We use to have a large red/white cat...another one that walked in the door and said I'm staying....Bubba. He had a white spot on his lower back. When we went to look at our first corgi…"
"I have always ended up with mixes that found me. here's a picture of the latest kitten that literally walked up to the amidst all the corgis and decided to call my house "home". If you could find a young rescue that picks you and…"
"I had a young orange tabby wander into my yard a few months ago. He wrestles with my pup constantly and they chase each other around the yard.
This was just a wonderful coincidence though. She shelters will allow you to bring your pup in to see if…"
"I agree that there is no special breed that would be best. Cat breeds don't differ as much as dogs do. Go to a shelter. Pick out a young adult kitty with a confident attitude, laid back, not too fearful. Boy cats can be better, since they tend…"
Congratulations on the new family member!!! Where abouts in Calgary do you live? We are in the North West. Perhaps a chance to meet up for the dogs to meet each other. Mason will be 3 in May and is very submissive and extremely friendly. Enjoy every moment - they aren't a puppy long enough.
