: I have a Himalayan cat, and I wondered if this breed is compatable with cats?


Hi Elaine,

If you take the time to read some of the information on this site you will find out that we don't recommend having a JRT if you own a cat or other small furry creatures. This is a prey focused hunting dog that can one day decide living with a cat is just not for him/her. Your cat and terrier might spend years together and tolerate each other and then all of a sudden you come home to either a dead cat, or a terrier with it's face messed up by your cat.

Please take the time to read the links I am providing you. We appreciate you taking the time to ask the question. This makes you a more informed consumer. Also take into consideration of your cat. While most cats are not going to be happy with having a dog in the house, they are pretty much going to be miserable living in one that has a dog looking to make kitty its lunch. I know we will get posts from people that will say their cats and terriers get along but do you want to take the chance that they might not?
