Cats can pretend they don’t like dogs all they want, but we know the truth…

Felines enjoy dog company as canines are simply one more creature that can be subjected to kitty will!

And dogs being the sweethearts they are, they usually give cats their way. Plus, the pups have learned disagreeing with a cat usually means claws, so its easier to adhere to kitty whims without question!


We’ve collected evidence from social media revealing how cats boss dogs around, but the dogs just deal with it. After all, whether dog or human, when you love a cat, you know who’s really in charge!

Dogs, Just Another Breed of Minion Serving Felines

A cat queen sits atop a fluffy dog mountain in order to enjoy the morning sun in the most comfortable fashion…


Only a tiny kitten and already putting a dog to work as a purrfect perch…


And like the dogs above, here’s another pup happy to serve the needs of adorable kittens!

One more kitten/dog duo just to prove kittens have dogs wrapped around their little toe beans!


Finn has taught Archie a dog’s spot is behind the cat, in case the cat might be needing anything of his dog butler.


Olive thinks Cora serves her needs well as her black lab friend offers excellent camouflage when a cat most needs it!


Sebastian Barry Allen quite loves his doggie sibling as all those curls make a pleasing pillow for a tabby cat!


Cats enjoy throwing their dog siblings under the bus even when the evidence clearly implicates feline involvement. Example? When Coco was asked about eating her mom’s yogurt, the food in question smeared across her nose, the cat simply answered, “No It was not me, I think it was the dog”…


No surprise here! Another kitten using a dog for their own purposes…

Dogs give cats the opportunity to flex their hunting skills too, offering excellent sparring partners who can handle a cat beating!


Cats Secretly Care about Dogs, Just Don’t Tell

Here’s a secret cats don’t want you to know though. When they think no one is looking, they do kind things for their dog friends!

Like Sidney and Kooga! When Kooga’s arthritis acts up, Sidney offers some massage therapy because kitties actually love their doggy minions!
