Dog And Cat Engage In Friendly Wrestle Battle
The old saying that cats and dogs can't live together and can’t get along isn't true. You can have a pet dog and cat under the same roof, not just tolerating each other, but actually enjoying interacting and being part of the one family.
Animals that live under the same roof form a pack and treat each other differently than they would other animals outside their familiar environment. They learn to peacefully coexist.
If the cat stands its ground, normally the dog will ignore it. If the cat runs, then the rules of the game change and the cat becomes a prey. This holds true in the house, too. Cats being the drama queens they are, will often entice the dog to chase it, by slinking around or running.
One of the biggest mistakes a pet owner can make is to assume that when one animal is ready to play, the other is too. Playing is an important way for alliances and socialization to take place for cats and dogs, but both animals have to be willing to take part.
In this hilarious video, it is obvious that these cat and dog learned how to play together without getting hurt. What at first seems a very intense wrestling match, turns out to be just a friendly tease. In the end they're still the best of friends!
It is interesting, how most dogs love to “torture” their cats, usually in a non-violent way. It’s all done in good fun, similar like the siblings torturing each other. No harm meant. It is just a power struggle. Observe the playful behavior of these two animals, they simply cannot keep their paws off each other. This video is proof that dogs and cats can live in peace, and a little wrestle game never hurt nobody.
