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.

  4. 4. 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.
  5. 5. THERE ARE THINGS THAT THE HUMANS CAN DO TO ENCOURAGE A CAT AND DOG TO ACCEPT EACH OTHER AS PART OF THE SAME HOUSEHOLD:
  6. 6. 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
