Conflicts arise between cats and dogs because they see the world differently. "The cat tries to get away, the dog thinks the cat is inviting it to a game, and so chase ensues with neither party understanding what the motivation of the other one is," says anthrozoologist John Bradshaw. When they do get along, however, it's adorable!
