This is a question for those of you who have both cats and dogs. Our 3 cats and Corky the dog actually get along quite well. They're not pals but they peacefully co-exist and there really have been no problems since we've had cats. However, they do what I call the sneaky dog and cat fights. The cats will bap him one with a sheathed paw when they think nobody is looking and it's just at the right time, nobody gets hurt. And Corky likes to steal their toys. I think the poor dog knows he's outnumbered but he controls the toys. No mouse and no puffy ball is safe with him. A cat plays with something and if he sees it he just marches right up to the cat and takes it away and then goes and hides it under his paws. I'm sure it's the alpha dog thing and the cats just let him have it but I find it quite humerous actually because in their way, they are "fighting," but nobody gets hurt. We have to have the right timing when it's kitty play time. Nobody really seems stressed and the usual butt greetings and nose greetings continue on. So how is it at your house those of you with dogs and cats?
