well I have a four year old Staffordshire who loves to chase cats out in the street. I bought home a kitten that was just to be for a few days and one of the reasons we kept it was cause him and the dog are inseperable!!! My dog is used to rabbits so she knows the word gentle very well. We got her when she was three and it took me months to get her used to the rabbits. We just could not trust her at all. But now we can lock her out in the animal room with the rabbits running around and she will not touch them, even if they jump her. She is 100% trustworthy (the first time I did it I watched them through the door the whole time without her knowing, she lay down and slept, even when they go in her crate she doesn't care).
Biscuit is a jealous dog too but she either gets ignored or put in another room if she gets too much. She knows now that jealousy gets her nowhere and she only tries to butt in if we're patting another dog, but she has learnt that we have two hands, and they both don't have to be on her!!!
Get a cat that is used to other dogs, otherwise you could have a problem on your hands, but introduce slwoly and they should be ok.
Too lazy to even think of a siggy
