You’ve probably heard the phrase fighting like cats and dogs, right? While there’s certainly some truth in the stereotype of cats and dogs hating on each other (they do having naturally conflicting temperaments, dogs are more social and playful while cats prefer their independence), with a little bit of luck and some very careful introductions the two can and do live together in relative harmony. Because who says you have to choose between being a ‘cat person’ and a ‘dog person’ when you can have the best of both? Even so, when cats and canines do become roomies there’s always going to be some drama.

Bored Panda has compiled a list of photos of those times when our furry friends just did not get along, natural instincts took over and they fought like, well, cats and dogs. Which one is your favourite? Do you have both cats and dogs together as pets? Let us know in the comments below!

Cats normally don't like dog food (or none of ours have). I guess this cat does it only to p**s of the dogs and show them who's the ruler.

C'mon, you have to admit it does kind of resemble litter. I wonder if this was a newly introduced cat to the household.
