I have had my 2 cats for 12 yrs. My s/o reacently brought home a dog ,(well he's only about 7 months old but he' pretty big.) My cats have always roamed freely around my yard. Well now he thinks he owns the place and is always chasing and cornering them! They scratch his nose if he gets to close. It seems like he thinks he's playing with them , but they sure as heck don't think so!Answer Question

You need to keep a good eye on the puppy (7 mos is still a pup) - as the pp said some dog breeds have a very high prey drive - and make sure he's really just playing with your cats or if he's trying to 'eat' them; lol.
I have two 50lb dogs and two 11lb cats; the dogs will chase the cats (only if they're running first) but they have only ever pushed them with their nose; I watched them very closely together at first and luckily neither dog ever tried to 'mouth' the cats...
As long as the pup isn't trying to eat them; they will all learn their places and how to get along
