DOG & CATS: FRENEMIES
OR FRIENDS FOR LIFE?
ᐧ A D A M C R O M A N ᐧ
THEY
FIGHT
LIKE
CATS
AND
DOGS.
If you scroll through Youtube, you
are sure to see plenty of videos of
dogs and cats interacting. Mostly,
what warms our hearts is the
unlikely bond between the two
animals.
However, for every instance of a cat
contentedly riding on the back of his
most trusted golden retriever, there
is also a video of a cat swatting a
curious dog into submission when
friendly contact is attempted.

QUESTIONS:
The answer could lie with evolution.
Dogs were the first animals to be
domesticated by humans. 
In other words, cats have had less time
than dogs for their wildness to be bred
out of them. They have not lost their
instinct to hunt and kill and are still
skittish and territorial by nature. As
many a cat owner will attest, cats want
everything on their terms only.
THERE ARE THINGS THAT
THE HUMANS CAN DO TO
ENCOURAGE A CAT AND
DOG TO ACCEPT EACH
OTHER AS PART OF THE
SAME HOUSEHOLD:
Introduce the two animals
while they are still young.
Remember that cats and dogs
speak different languages. 
Go for positive
reinforcement whenever
possible, giving treats to both
animals for good, calm
behavior
Use all of the recommended
procedures during the initial
days and weeks of contact
