Best way for cats and beardies to get along?

I just got a baby beardie, he"https://centregalilee.com/do-bearded-dragons-and-cats-get-along/imager_1_4699_700.jpgs probably at most two weeks old. We also have two cats, they are still young.. about a 1 1/2 years old. We keep the beardie in our computer room and usually leave the door shut unless me and my boyfriend are both, or at least one of us are in there. My one cat is more curious and playful (sometimes bad!) and the other one is calm.. so far, the curious one jumped up one time and tried to jump on top of the screen.. the other one jumped up on the table and just sat calmly and watched. Surprisingly the beardie didn"https://centregalilee.com/do-bearded-dragons-and-cats-get-along/imager_1_4699_700.jpgt seem scared or to even care they were there, and when we took him out and held him he was fine.

I"https://centregalilee.com/do-bearded-dragons-and-cats-get-along/imager_1_4699_700.jpgd wait until your beardie is six-eight months old before introducing the cats, just in case they accidentaly hurt him at his age.

Cats, being a natural predator, tend to see small lizards as a toy/snack. So it is not advisable to let them near your dragon until he is much larger. Even at that stage cats are not something i would ever trust with one of my lizards. Personally I would suggest against "https://centregalilee.com/do-bearded-dragons-and-cats-get-along/imager_1_4699_700.jpgintroducing"https://centregalilee.com/do-bearded-dragons-and-cats-get-along/imager_1_4699_700.jpg them as they are natural enemies (wild cats are a major predator of wild lizards). Just mine .02 centsPSAre you sure on that age? That is FAR too young for someone to be selling a dragon.

I have to agree with Spyder on this, safest thing is to not introduce them at all. I know there are plenty of cute cat and beardie pictures but there are also plenty of cat attack stories. All it take is once for a dragon to get bitten or scratched, even the most docile and lazy cat has hunting instincts.

I know it"https://centregalilee.com/do-bearded-dragons-and-cats-get-along/imager_1_4699_700.jpgs probably not best for them to be together, but since I have two cats and live in a condo, they are bound to see each other all the time.. and I want them to at least acknowledge their presence without wanting to attack each other.
