Cat That Looks Like a Dog — 6 Comments

  1. Yes Michael, my 5 year old tomcat “Matata” is more of a dog than a cat in behaviour.He recently survived “Shampoo Poisoning” as the chemicals of the shampoo in which he was given a bathe reacted in a poisonous manner and he vomited for almost 2 days.The chemicals must have got into his system due to self grooming after the bathe.I though that i had lost him since he can’t be taken to a vet as he gets violent when handled by strangers or put into a cat cage.Unless tranquilised he cannot be handled or treated by a veterinarian.Luckily my patience in changing his food intake from solid food to partial liquid food gradually reduced the vomiting and he recovered on his own.He is now hale and hearty back to hid dog mannerisms and habits.

  2. I better understand how a cat can take on some behavioral characteristics of a dog and visa versa if they were raised with a different species than their own.
    But, it’s really a stretch for me to see any physical likenesses.
