The age-old phrase “fighting like cats and dogs” does not have to be the case. Despite popular belief, canines and felines can, in fact, live together in harmony.
If you’re a cat owner looking to add a new dog to your household, the American Kennel Club and Cat Fancier’s Association offer the following tips:
â€¢ Look for dogs that possess catlike dispositions. Some breeds are traditionally used to hunt small game and vermin. Certain Toy breeds, such as the Affenpinscher, have the ability to track and catch vermin much like a cat.
Toy breeds such as Chihuahuas or Yorkshire terriers can be litter-box trained. Make sure that you use separate boxes and that the new dog does not have access to the cat’s litter box because clumping cat litter is toxic to dogs when ingested and gets trapped in the digestive system. Litter made from recycled newspaper is best.
