Are yorkies good with cats?
My cats don't tolerate other animals well. They're OK with dogs. A little scared of large animals but would tolerate a small dog in their lap, but I can't let it get close to them. They'd eat each other if given the chance. They get along with most other cats, but not all (see below). I love them, they're great. But they don't like anything other than me.
I have a 4 year old yorkie and a 6 year old cat, and they've never had any problems. My cat, a long-haired tortie, has never seen the inside of a dog kennel, and the dog gets along with the yorkie very well. In fact, he has been known to let the yorkie jump up and play with him, much to the yorkie's delight. They get along, they play together.
They don't like the same toys or treats, but they do get along fine.
The yorkie is great, but also a bit jumpy, and very, very vocal. If you have other kids or cats around the house, keep that in mind. You might want to keep a close eye on your cat when you have visitors, to make sure it doesn't get any ideas about jumping on people's legs.
My cat has had other cats, and she's never had problems with them, except that they usually just ignore each other.
In the end, I'm glad I have two cats, and they're good friends. I hope your yorkie and cat are just the same!
My two dogs live at home with me and one of my cats. I have a German Shepherd and a Husky. The Husky is the biggest and has the loudest bark (not sure why, maybe the loudest bark is a sign of the biggest dog), and doesn't like cats much at all. He'll only go after the cats if he's hungry and when my other dog comes in to eat. We have a little terrier and he's very nice with both of them. But with the husky, he wants to play with the husky, and he gets a little over-enthusiastic and runs into the house after the cat. I guess if the cat isn't happy about the dog, it could get a little aggressive. But I'm happy for the Husky to play, because it's just part of his life. It's not like he's chasing it. The dog is just happy to be playing.
As far as my cat goes, she loves all dogs (and cats), and the two dogs and the terrier just don't get along. She'll be all over the other dogs if they're in the same room. And I'm sure that the dogs just don't see much of a difference.
So, with the dogs and cat, the cat's a real pushover. The Husky is the biggest, loudest dog, and the terrier is a little dog. So, I'm not surprised that the cat doesn't like the Husky much. The Husky, on the other hand, doesn't mind the terrier because he's a big dog. So I'm surprised that he doesn't like the cat, since he's bigger than the cat. The cat is fine with the terrier. I suppose that the Husky gets a little protective, too. The terrier's not a threat to the cat, so it's not like he has to be a protector, just because he's big. I'm not sure what he thinks about the dog, except that he's really protective of the cat, but not with the cat threatening him. The two dogs are a lot alike in that they all like to play. They all love their people, so they love one another, too.
As long as they don't really try to hurt each other, there's no problem. When there is a problem, they're always glad to just go back to being friends again. They play again
