One of the things that helped out two pets out at the time was putting up a baby gate that was just low enough to let the cat under into the next
room, but high enough to keep out the large breed of dog we had (Siberian Husky). This way, the cat could come out, grab some food, then go back into
her "safe room".
At first, both animals kid of hated each other, and then one night, we discovered that out little cat was picking on the dog while it was sleeping
(she would attack the dog's ears, then run back under the gate before he lunged at her). How this one ends is that one night, the cat attacked my
dog's ears, then went back under the gate, and looked back to see what the dog would do - lets just say that the dog ran full on into the baby gate,
knocked it over, and cornered the cat. He then started giver her kisses, and they've been friends ever since.
As long as you keep an eye on them, even if it's an older cat, it will grow to be indifferent towards a dog - might take a while though. Good
