While some cats and dogs get along so well it’s heartwarming to watch, other pets are such jerks to each other that they remind us that Sunday morning cartoons always knew something more than we did.
Bored Panda has collected the funniest examples of cats acting like the biggest jerks to their live-in canine pals. Scroll down, upvote your fave pics, and let us know in the comments if your cats and your dogs get along well, dear Pandas. Oh, and pray for us because the cattos might be out to get us for outing their dirty little secrets!
There are a bunch of reasons why your cat might be attacking your dog. It’s alright if things stay playful, however, that’s not always the case.
If your pets keep on fighting, they might get seriously hurt. So if things are getting out of hand, you might want to separate them when you can’t keep an eye on them. Until you come up with a way to make sure that Mr. Cat and Ms. Dog like each other.
Cats that act out may in fact be overwhelmed with stress. Maybe your cat’s feeling stressed out because it’s (still) not used to having the dog around the house. Perhaps you’re stressing out about life and your cat’s picking up on your vibes. Or maybe it’s worried that the stuff that we all had to deal with in 2020 won’t magically end with the New Year. Who knows!
The point is, your cat needs to feel calm, so do your best to remove any factors that might be stressing it out from its immediate environment. Also, try giving it some toys to play with or chew to help it relax.
Keep in mind that any friendship takes time and trust to develop. You can’t expect your pets that have been at each other’s throats to suddenly become best buds. However, with a lot of patience, you can help them respect each other’s boundaries and, hopefully, start a magical friendship.
