I once dated a girl that had a dog. Tried to sit on my lap and lick my face. Unfortunately it was the stupid dog, not the girl. Didn’t last long.
Find a new owner, get a nicer cat.
Don’t worry Carlyle, there are many cats and dogs who are good friends. If it’s a small dog you should be fine.
I raised puppies and kittens together. My friend came over one day with her big dog. He was sleeping on the back porch. I picked up my cat and held it in his face. The cat was spitting and hissing and squirming. The dog opened one eye, thought, “Cat,” and went back to sleep. He didn’t twitch one whisker.
