Hello, I have a 2 yr. old JR female. I am thinking of getting a kitty cat and know that male JRs are not a good mix. My question is, are females as bad as the males as far as integrating a cat into the family and worries of her killing the cat? She is a sweetheart dog with very mild temperment.

Honestly my Bruce is a 9month old pup who seems to torment my five year old cat morris. But when it comes down to it the two of them romp around all day long. Sometimes I have to separate them when it gets a bit too rough. But 99% morris knows when to back off. I have had a few friends ask to borrow my cat to see if it would help with their house hold balance, but I couldn't imagine separating the two.
I don't think Bruce my jrt would act differently with any other cat. He's a bit of a bully. But I do think my cat is one special creature who is sometimes far more patient than I am. He's the one that makes the relationship work. From letting Bruce groom him to just walking away from a fight. Try to find a playful cat that doesn't mind standing up for himself. I say himself because these types of cats tend to be male.

Hi there, my jack is male and he's so mild mannered, BUT, not when it comes to wanting to attack my poor cat.

Try her with a cat first.
