You want to Bring Home a Dog??!!

Don’t worry. We are remaining an all-feline household. Mom says that she is much too lazy to have a dog. And our human siblings are completely Team Cat as well. But Mom and our human brother were talking recently about how our human dad had wanted a dog several years ago.

We had no idea there were so many kinds of dogs. Some definitely sound like better housemates than others. Lower energy and easygoing personalities sound the best to us. Mom would have insisted on a shelter dog, so we probably would have ended up with a goofy fur sib.

Why Does My Dog or Cat Have Bad Breath? - Bothell Pet Hospital

It got our furry brains wondering what life would have been like with a doggy sibling. First thing, it would have probably not have smelled as good. Dogs just smell – different. They probably smell fine to other dogs. But we’re cats – with cat standards. It’s hard enough dealing with some of the funky human smells.

And dogs eat – different. From what we’ve been able to read, some are not really very selective about what they eat, particularly about whether what they put in their mouths belongs to them. Or is even food.

21 Dogs Who Clearly Have No Idea How HUGE They Are

We probably would have had to fight for cuddle time too. It’s bad enough with just us cats, but imagine what it would have been like with something that considers itself “man’s best friend.” And it would have been bigger than us too. Humans are so hard to retrain; it would have been a nightmare.

It probably would have taken even longer to train the dog. Even though dogs are obviously intended to be minion material, it would have been a lot of work.

On the other paw, it might have been nice to have someone to blame for stuff getting knocked over or broken. And it probably would have been tall enough to get stuff down for us. And maybe we could have ridden it…

  1. We have a Shetland Sheepdog puppy who is almost 6 months old and is on the HUGE end of Shelties……he doesn’t realize his size. While he and Roary love each other, he is constantly trying to eat him! Dakota and Cody (Dakota was another Shetland Sheepdog and was gentle) were the best of friends!! Roary would tell you, be glad you didn’t get a dog!!!! Especially a puppy! The work is UNREAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Take it from us!! Stay dog-free!

  3. Yeah, I’m team cat, too. I would consider a dog if he vowed to be my slave and servant, though. But, I will discourage my human from getting one if it ever comes up. You make some good points.

  4. We are a cat and dog house. Kozmo and Cinnamon grew up together. We love having a hairy slobbery sister to blame things on! Cinnamon is a bit of a pain though…she gets quite upset when the humans play with us cats (she thinks that it should only be her)! We also love that she makes Mom go for long walks 3 times a day and she is getting back into shape. We believe if the dog is trained by cats when a puppy, the cats rule! Have a marvellously happy day!

  5. Hi, this is Anubis here, Lord of Former Rescue Cats Australian Branch. I can recommend Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. My two are soft, great cushions, when they get treats which is a lot especially during training, Mummy feels guilty and gives me treats, I have even trained the little one to sit when I raise a paw. I have had to teach them that I accept 2 gentle kisses as greeting and farewell but they are easy to teach, the little one even runs through his tricks to amuse me. They shower with Mummy so don’t smell too doggy and their breath smells of treats.
