White Shepherd Playing With Kitty
Cats and dogs have both similarities and differences. What are they and how do they affect relationships?
Both the cat and the dog are predators with a hunting instinct (the degree of its severity varies both between breeds and within one breed). But cats and dogs hunt in different ways: if dogs drive the prey in a flock, then the cat makes a jump from an ambush.
Both the dog and the cat defend their territory from outsiders.
