Cats and dogs are not often known for getting along. They are known for being fairly different. From their personalities to their likes and dislikes, it is hard to see these creatures in the same light. But, every once in a while, we will stumble upon a cat who thinks that they are a dog!

Phillip was living on borrowed time when he was adopted by Josiah. Josiah had wanted a cat since he was a kid, but he got more than he bargained for with this cat that identifies as a dog!

This cat was raised by dogs and has spent his entire life being surrounded by them. So, it’s no wonder that he has forgotten his cat-like instincts and become one with his pup siblings – going as far as loving water!

3. Rosie

Rosie the cat doesn’t just act like a dog – she’s the leader of the pack. Ever since she was just a kitten her husky siblings have followed her every move.

Smoothie the cat has a lot of feline-like habits. But, her addiction to fetch makes her think she is more dog than cat!

5. Birdie

Birdie’s mom raised him as a dog unintentionally. She was so used to being around pups that when she adopted Birdie from a shelter in Alabama, she accidentally treated him as a dog.

From playful antics to unexpected affections, the stories above remind us that our beloved pets are not confined to societal expectations. So, the next time your cat exhibits a behavior more reminiscent of a loyal pup, embrace the delightful mystery that comes with sharing your life with these fascinating and cute creatures.
