Hi there, I am considering a sheltie for our home and we have three cats. Two are younger at 1.5yr and still super playful and curious about everything. I don't worry too too much about them, the brother likes to bully the neighbors tiny dog with the same name, Mini. Molly is the sister and is not too bright, but loveable all the same. Then there's Pip. A sweet kind gentle giant old man of a cat. He's pretty playful for his age at 5.5yr. he just wants outside for a bit to check out the neighbourhood and then back in to sit on my lap or a chair. He'll chase toys inside, and still gets the zoomies when he's been stuck inside too long. I really could talk about them all day they're all sweet kind and funny. All three love babies and kids, they seem to be fine no matter how busy my home gets. But generally speaking their interactions with dogs are very limited. Mini the dog rarely comes out, and weighs about two lbs. And I once doggy sat my brothers GSD and Pip and Molly freaked the F*** out. Mini was super brave and tried to face down an 80lb dog! But the dog chased mini and I literally had to tackle the dog the ground to reach him in time to stop what looked like what might be a blood bath that was about to happen. When the dog left Mini and Molly came back to their normal routine in a few minutes but Pip took a couple hours. So back to my question, how are the little shelties with cats?
