As someone who has wires and rescues wires, the canned answer to this is NO. Most WFT's do not do well with cats. This breed is an intense terrier--not like a schnauzer or westy but is very keenly prey driven. Yes, there are some wires who have learned to do okay with cats, but it is the exception to the rule. I know personally of a few people who have had wires and thought the dog did okay with the cat, just to come home to find the cat dead or have the cat get out and the dog kill it. If this happens you cannot blame the dog. I encourage you to join a yahoo group for wires http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/wirefoxterrier/ to learn more about the breed from people who have them and ask around on the list--there may be someone who lives realtively close to you so you can spend time with a dog. Think Jack Russell on steroids, except without the same interest in training that a Jack has. These are highly interlligent dogs, but fiercly stubborn and because of that hard to train. They are cute, funny and can be love bugs--but truly only about 5% of the population are prepared to handle one. Maybe you are in that 5%? Please do as much reseach as you can before you bring one of these into your home!
