Why do dogs and cats hate each other?

.
Since it has always been known that dogs and cats can not get along, but then you can discover how there are families that have dogs and cats and that live in harmony and also giving each other unconditional love, feeling inside the same herd even if they are different species. So, why do you think dogs hate cats and vice versa? Is this totally true?

The real answer is no. Cats and dogs do not hate each other as we all believe. Dogs and cats are not natural enemies. But what really happens between dogs and cats? Then you can find out exactly why it seems that dogs and cats hate each other.

The dog is predatory by nature

Usually there may be fear of cats towards dogs or dogs wanting to hunt cats, but it is not natural between these two species in particular, it is simply an instinct. Cats flee threats greater than themselves and dogs hunt prey smaller than them.

Different communication

Dogs and cats can be interpreted as if they were two people from different cultures. They do not speak the same language. For example, dogs move their tails when they are happy or want to greet someone, whereas if a cat moves its tail it is because it is nervous, aggressive or feels threatened.

Therefore, cats and dogs have a quite different communication and perhaps more than instinct is sometimes a lack of communication between both species. Another example to understand this is when both animals raise their legs. In the case of the dog is that he wants to play and in the case of the cat is for you to leave him and that is why he shows you his claws as a warning sign, it is a threat.

Different characters

On the other hand, the two animals have totally different characters. Most dogs want affection, are expressive, social and have a lot of energy. Cats are much more their own and they like to keep distance with other beings that have not earned their trust. Therefore, when a dog jumps and invades the territory of a cat, trying to smell it to become its friend, a cat would retire quickly and could even give it a blow because it feels threatened.

THERE IS NO REAL HATRED BETWEEN DOGS AND CATS
Once arrived at this point, it is necessary to make clear that there is no real hatred between dogs and cats, or at least not a 'hatred' as people understand this emotion. There are many examples of dogs and cats that are great friends. There are families that have as pets dogs and cats that live in harmony and that little by little they understand each other to communicate better among themselves.

There may even be cats that find an abandoned puppy and that he 'adopts' him, raising him as if he were a child of his and the dog would accept his adopted mother.

If you want to have a dog and a cat in your home, and the young since they are small or you incorporate a puppy dog ​​having an adult cat at home or a small cat having an adult dog at home, if you make a good presentation and allow it to know little by little, there should not be any kind of problem.

Although dogs and cats do not hate each other and can be great friends if they live together in harmony, you should know that there are other species that can not live together in harmony ... like cats and birds. A cat is also a natural predator and his instinct will be to hunt the bird.
