George the Collie on Dogs v Cats

A story of love, not hate.

Ever since books have been in print and images have been shown on screen there have been ‘Dog v Cat’ stories.

Natural enemies. Nature or Nurture?

Of the last three dogs we’ve had, none have been ‘taught’ that cats are the enemy and so, obviously, they do not see them as such.


Parents teach to their kids who pass it on and so it goes on, needlessly.

Cats, naturally being more safety conscious tend to shy away from dogs, especially if they’ve had a bad experience and this can set the dogs on edge. One feeds the other and so the problem persists.

But start them off on the right foot and make it a good, friendly experience and you get a different outcome.

Spread love, not hate.

  1. We have 8 cats and 2 dogs, and they mostly coexist. The puppy does not know her boundaries yet but eventually she’ll get a good scratch on the nose and she’ll learn not to jump on them. What I really don’t understand is the trend for dog people and cat people to be enemies, (mostly online but in real life too,) and argue about which is “better.” How can you call one animal better than another? I’ve never met a cat that could pull a sled, but I’ve never known a dog that could climb trees.
