Spoken language often describes people who quarrel all the day as they live like cat and dog, it seems that in our subconscious, cat and dog could not live together in peace.
Is that real, or just our guess? I am interested in that question and gathered many cases…till I find there are something fun… That’s hear specialists’ opinion first.
Specialists say that both dogs and cats have their own “secret language”, interestingly, there is a huge difference between their lifestyle and emotion expression, even most are opposite, so that dogs and cats often misunderstand each other, and that’s why they often fight and give us an impression of incompatible.
However, in most family, dogs and cats are not live in such style we think, unexpectedly, they can live in perfect harmony in the same home.
So I guess although their instincts are opposite, cats and dogs can live together as long as there is no competition between them. They even can make you believe that friendship comes in all shapes and sizes.
What’s interesting is that those cats and dogs who lived together, have appeared to develop their intelligence. They can learn how to read each other’s body signals, suggesting that the two may have more in common than we previously suspected.
Once familiar with the presence and body language of each other, cats and dogs can play together, greet each other nose to nose, and enjoy sleeping together on the sofa. They can easily share the same water bowl and in some cases groom each other.
What way do your cats and dogs get along?
