Default Taking in a foster cat today...any advice?

I have an 8 month old who has never seen a cat before in his life. My older dog is fine with them, no worries there.

My current plan is to set things up in the bathroom, litter box and food on the counter. I was going to leave the cat in the bathroom with the door closed for a day or two so they can get used to the smell of each other.

My worry is when it comes to letting the cat out, that my dog will totally pounce on her. What are some ways you guys have calmed a dog down around a smaller critter? Usually when I need to calm him down, I give him a long leash attached to me and something tasty to chew on, kind of a bandaid fix and not a real good solution.
