Hi, My cat Kirara is a little over a year old. We've had a dog before that was really old and died of cancer. She attacked that dog, too. We waited a few months and now we have a puppy. I understand she may think that this is her house, but it really isn't. I don't think that's the real problem. because she attacked the other dog when it was here first. I live with a lady who is blind and when I go off to work I have to close Kirara in my bedroom so that she doesn't get outside. She may think that is a form of punishment because when the other dog was alive I'd close her in there after she had attacked the dog. I know it's not fair for Kirara to always be locked in the bedroom while I am away and because I can't trust her to leave the puppy alone, but the blind lady says if she attacks the puppy again she has to leave. I don't know what to do. The blind lady thinks cats are just like dogs and that my cat is just being mean for no reason at all and she wouldn't understand or even listen to me when I say maybe there is a reason. She doesn't think that the cat is unhappy because of being shut in the room all of the time and nor does she care.
