I have posted on this site quite a bit lately, I got a kitten (Marlee) two weeks ago from a shelter. Shes about 11 weeks old. She was having some trouble, but is doing very well now. My parents are coming to visit on Sunday (I'm living in a different town, attending college and have an apartment where I can't have dogs) and are bringing my dog Maggie to stay with me for a week or so while they go out of town. Maggie is a great dog, a Lhasa Apso about to turn 3. She is very happy and easy to please, and loves everyone, including other dogs, cats, etc. My problem is that this is the first time Marlee and Maggie will be meeting. I thought it would go okay, considering Marlee was around dogs in the shelter. But I have a friend with a very calm dog, who I thought would be a good "practice meet". Marlee DID NOT seem to like it. She hissed and growled, but didn't try to run away. So I need some tips to make it easier for Baby Marlee. If it absolutely won't work, my parents said they'll find somewhere else for her to stay. But I'd like to let them get to know eachother, b/c when I graduate and get a house, they will be living together permanantly. Any help?
