Default Westies and Cats

I was wondering if it would be OK to introduce a West Highland Terrier
(about a year old) as I have two cats (both 2 years old) Is the Terrier
likely to harm them?
Regards
Nick

A friend of mine has done that exact same thing. She bought a breeding
westie, and already had two cats. They get along fine now.
Just ask if it's been socialised around cats. It can be a slow process.
Atleast it will be past the bouncy wanna play wanna play wanna play part for
the most, and might be calmer around the cats than a young pup.
Goodluck!
Jade.

Good luck. Part of whether this will work or not depends on how often
and how intensely the dog has been teased by roaming cats. I suggest a
cautious trial visit.
