My pets.

People often think you can't have dogs and cats as pets because dogs chase cats. have you ever disproven the theory by owning both? how did they get along?

That's my blue dog and orange cat curled up in front of the fire in the picture. So yes, I've had cats and dogs as pets a number of times. My current set are best of friends, they chase each other around playing all the time. The cat cleans the dog's ears, and the dog ... well he does friends doggy stuff.
No. My husband is not a dog person, and personally I prefer cats too.

I've never owned a cat, and apart from my parents having a dog when I was a toddler, I've never had a dog either.
I haven't :(

I would love tooooooo :)
Yes I always used to have both as a child and a teenager.

It was not until later that I decided I did not want cats any more as they are not as affectionate as dogs and they kill small animals.

My cats and dogs always got on fine together until I started owning a GSP which is a pointer and trained to bring back small animals.

This type of dog would kill a cat as would my little whippet -they would chase and even if not intentionally, grab a cat and probably kill it.

The GSP's would bring their "find" back to me but they are supposed to bring them back alive which one of mine used to do -nto fun when it is a big river rat!

So, yes, depending on the type of dog you have, cats and dogs are OK together.

My aunt and uncle always had a cat and dog (usually terrier/Maltese types) and they got on mostly. When one died, they'd just get another dog/cat and there'd be the automatic older one thing.
Yes, cats and dogs get on and particularly ones that are bought up together in a household, Most I had together ( in my younger years!) three Irish wolfhounds and six ( yes six) cats! Yahoo! I am down to one ginger cat now, phew!
My beautiful Bitish Blue cat ruled the house, so when Welsh Pembroke Corgi puppy arrived, my dear old cat showed her who's boss by giving her a swipe across her nose with his paw!
It was really funny to see, & they never had a problem after that!
Yes. Most of my life.
