There is a misconception that when cats and dogs get together, they fight. But this isn’t always true, felines and canines can live harmoniously under one roof. Many pet owners have examples of cats that buddy up to their canine companions, of dogs chasing cats off their turf, or of the two species respectfully ignoring each other. The two don’t have to automatically fight like cats and dogs. Their communication styles differ too which can lead to confusion. A dog wags his tail to show happiness and eagerness to play; a cat lashes her tail to indicate displeasure or anger.
It is usually observed that a dog and cat who are best friends and spend hours in rough and tumble play before curling up next to each other and taking a long nap. In some houses, the dog-cat relationship is one of mutual tolerance and friendly avoidance.
