I have 2 cats who are brothers now aged 9 (i think) was from the RSPCA and age is a bit off but I think they are 9.

A friend of mine was given a pug puppy as the original owner had gotten ill and couldn't look after her any more. The friend (Alice) already has 2 Chihuahuas and they are not liking the new addition. So I stepped in asking if I could take her on, and we agreed we would try. So we have been having a playdate every other day and it was going so well, 1 cat does not give a toss but his brother is not as happy. It started well with them nose to nose and sniffing and so forth and then the pug went into her first season and that's when It all changed. He became hissy, growling and have a swot - no claws out - just a paw. We believe she is finished her seasson- its been 23 days - but they had a tussle today. They were sitting apart having abit of a stare at each at each other and then cat sprang to the dog and the dog sprang to the cat and it was a flash of fur, it was broken up within seconds. Neither was hurt, all fine and we called the playdate to a end. I cant understand why the change? Could this be them sorting out their ranks in the house? Could this be jealousy ? He is not as affectionate as his brother. The brother is the dominant one between the 2. He comes to you when he wants a fuss and goes when done. I am just torn and not sure what to do. I love this little pug with all my heart but am loosing hope now. If anyone can give me advise or guidance I would be so grateful. Thank you
