Puppy and adult cat. Too usually everything is not so terrible. The puppy will not begin to show aggression, watch only that he did not bother a cat. Provide to each of them the personal territory.
Adult dog and adult cat. The most difficult case. Here everything depends on the previous experience both. Also there is no guarantee that they in general will ever get on. If yes — you were lucky. If pets absolutely refuse to be on friendly terms, it is worth tracking at least that they met less often and to control their communication.
