Found this popular video on YouTube, and it really made me laugh. I have to say it is 100% the opposite in our household, where the cat wants to be friends with the dogs… and they don’t want to have anything to do with her due to serious trust issues!

How does it work in your household? Do your dogs annoy the cats with constant stabs of friendship? Or is it more of a claw based relationship?

  1. I love that video. It’s so funny. At our house the dogs have a very healthy respect for OUR kitties. If it’s a stray outside kitty then it’s fair game and they totally know the difference. :)

    Happy St. Patty’s Day!

    • Isn’t it crazy how they do that? Cats outside and cats inside are so incredibly different to our dogs too :)
