MAKING YOUR PET CAT AND DOG LIVE TOGETHER IN HARMONY

MAKING YOUR PET CAT AND DOG LIVE TOGETHER IN HARMONY

      

Can cats and dogs actually live together? Or do they fight like, well cats and dogs when they see each other? One of the most stereotyped things which we hear every time someone says that we want to keep both as pets. Despite what people say about their harmony, it is actually possible to make both your canine and feline friends live under one roof, provided the right conditions and time.

There are a lot of things one must keep in mind when keeping both dog and cat as pets.

Firstly, give them time to get comfortable with each other. When you first introduce your cat and dog, make sure they are put on a leash and observe their behavior. Give them time to know each other and if their reactions are extreme, you should try it after some time.

Make your home pet friendly. It is necessary to have separate space for different pets so that they can get comfortable easily. For eg., high spaces for cat as they love those spaces to spend time. Their food, food bowls and toys should also be separate.

Do not leave your pets alone while going out, if they are still not comfortable. The results can be disastrous. Observe how they are behaving with each other and when they no longer behave aggressively, you can think of keeping them in a wide, spacious room and introduce them without any restrain.

It is absolutely okay to keep both cats and dogs as pets. Just keeping certain things at place can make things good to go.
