Mine is great around my 3 cats. 2 are 12+ in years and the other 2 year old cat plays hide and seek!! Can be very respectful.


Maybe Plott/cross bred. but my dealing wih true Plotts, bred in the mountains of North Carolina, ex: Crockett's, Blevin's, Ferguson's, Cables, will not tolerate house cats. These dogs have been bred for hunting big game.


We have a three year old plott, who by the way is the best dog ever, and he does fine with our declawed cat. It took a bit of time but now they lay on the same bed together


how a dog is scocialized as a pup makes all the diffirence in how a dog will treat other animals.My " true plott " is good with other animals in the home. However if my cat was to get outside she would be spending a lot of time in a tree.He is gentle with pets and children in the home. but once he get his nose to the ground its time to hunt.He is not so much friendly with the cat as he is indiferent.


My Plott and cats don't mix at all.


Our plott is just fine w/ cats, it's how they are raised. We have 4 cats, a bunny, a lab and our plott and small children. They run our fields chasing each other but not aggressively, it's all play and having fun on the farm.


mine wont tolerate any cat, he associates them with anything wild and loves to chase, he only seems to get along with other dogs who are of equal or larger size,


We have 6 cats...our Plott Hound has been around them since he was a puppy and does very well with them - inside and outside. One of the cats is his best friend!
