As a Chihuahua breeder I can tell you that they must establish the "packs" pecking order.  The male Chi is exerting his Alpha male status and now you have the female Chi who is trying to establish her authority as the alpha female and then there is the Cat who doesn't have a clue what they are doing and believes all dogs are inferior to himself.  So, leave them be, they will work it out.  Just supervise so no one gets a toenail injury.  As long as they are just posturing and not attacking it will eventually work itself out.  Some chi's never like cats, all mine love my old 13 year old tabby.  His trick is to ignore the dogs as if they don't exist.

I have owned chihuahuas all my life, and love the breed. I can answer questions about color, shape, size, training, some breeding, and if you wanna ask me anything else, I'll give it my best shot.

Experience

I have been owned by Chihuahuas, or as humans like to put it, owned chihuahuas, all my life, and I have also trained my dogs.
