My husband and I have several pets. Our dog and our cat get along most of the time, but the other night the dog tried to lick the cat's fur. She didn't like it and she slapped him. It looked very funny when she hit him. He got very surpriced and he jumped backwards. He didn't try to touch her again. Our dog lets the cat share his basket and his blanket, but he gets angry when she tries to eat his food It is fun to watch the way they interact. Do you have pets? Do they get along?

I like watching animals interact. Some are very tolerant of others while some are not so at all.

That is true, they are very different. I like to watch our pets. We also have a rabbit and a guinea pig.

@Porcospino Some of the rabbit breeds now are so cute. I love the ones with the floppy ears. Are yours a particular breed?

@JudyEv I have two different breeds. The youngest ones are holland lop rabbits. I am not sure that what the other breed is. We adopted those two. They used to belong to a friend of a friend, but he couldn't keep them anymore.

They are really funny pets. I dont have any Porcsopino, but when I did yes, they were always so very amusing. I always think it is so funny the way that dogs get scared of the cats.

It is very funny to watch them. I still remember the expression on the dog's face when she hit him. He got very surpriced and jumped backwards.

Cats have a very bad temper, they always want to show to the dogs that they are the boss, poor dog!

I think that our dog is more tolerant than our cat, at least when he doesn't touch her food. Do you have cats or dogs?

That is great. It sounds like they really like eachother. Our dog lets the cat sleep in his basket, and sometimes they even sleep together, but the dog gets angry when she touches his food.

At one time, I had three cats and a dog. They had a lot of give and take between them and it was easy to see who got along and who wanted to be left alone! No matter what, they were entertaining! :)

It is entertaining to watch the way that pets interact. My pets get along most of the time, but the cat suddenly had enough the other night

Dogs & cats do have their moments @Porcospino . I have 12 indoor cats that don't always get along.

That is a lot of cats, and I can imagine that they don't along all the time. I have 7 pets myself, but only one of them is a cat.

The same thing happened in my parents' home when they had an adult dog and a puppy. Don't take my food

Amusing story about your cat and dog.I hope they get along better the next time. I can't imagine seeing a cat slap a dog. Humorous.

Yes, 3 pitbulls. I think so but they are on separate cages because they might bite people. Looks lke they are friends. But, if they see a stray cat, and we give the cat some food, I think the dogs get jealous and would want to bite the cat. Just an observation. They bark at the cat.

I can imagine that the dogs would get jealous if you feed a stray cat. We don't usually see stray cats here, but I think that our dog would get jealous as well.

It is nice that your dog and your cat got along well. Our dog and our cat also get along most of the time, but the cat tries to eat the dog's food sometimes, and he gets angry when that happens. He can't touch the cat's food because it is out of reach, but I think that he would eat it if he could

I don't have a pet currently but my mom has a pomeranian and my brother has a shitzu and they do get a long well. Once in awhile they'll get into a fight but they'll soon be back playing with each other again.
