My Dog Was Raised By Cats And Behaves Like One — 14 Comments

  1. Aww very cute, I love little dogs. My parents had to get another one as sadly, mum accidentally run there other one over. Was very heartbreaking for them. They live out in the country so things abit hard to see. The photo below is Molly shes 3 months old very tiny.

      • Laura took off the majority of his fur. Then I trimmed around his eyes. He’s something with his favorite ball. He can sniff it out. He has never balls, but he likes the oldest one he has. We can’t trick him into playing with the others.

        It’s already been in the 90 degree range here this month. Going to be another hot one for Tuesday. He’s smart enough to get into the bag with his pigs ear when I bring in a new bag of cat food. He’s addicted to those things.

    • Oh Cujo is gorgeous, my heart doesn’t melt for all dogs as it does for all cats, but he is irresistable!

  2. lol a nice story today about Cujo and your cats. It reminded me of Rooney who used to come to our ‘café on the wall’ to be fed along with the visiting cats. I’ve never know a dog to jump like a cat onto a wall and sit there. He really did think he was a cat too, he would only eat cat food.

    • What a fab little dog 🙂 my friend shares her home with 2 cats and also the neighbours cats and Jack Russell pop in to say hello. I love Cujo and love seeing him with his feline family

      • We never found out where he came from or what happened to him, he just vanished one day, we could never get hold of him, he could run and jump like a cat. Probably his family moved away.

  3. Love the article so great to see something positive, after the many weeks of of reading sad articles. Cute dog, great to see how cat and dogs can get along together wonderful!

  4. I have so many photos of Cujo with the cats. It was difficult choosing. Wish you could see him now. He had his 2nd shave of the year. Seems to keep down fleas and we’re nearing triple digits with the temp. He’s an inside dog and it has to be cooler for him. He’s asleep on my side in the bed. He’s a sweet dog and weighs about 17 lbs.

    • While you are nearing triple digit temperatures it’s still so chilly here in the Midwest that I decided against a swim in the Wisconsin River yesterday, even though I really wanted one. Only dogs and humans under four feet have been going in the water. Except the teenage boys jumping into Lake Michigan. Brrr…. It got down into the 40’s overnight. Some mornings Monty doesn’t stay out long. I think he’s too cold now that his winter coat is coming off from sunbathing. The sun feels warm, but we’ve had only a few days where the temperature was actually warm or even hot.

  5. This is the nature-nuture debate come to life. This is not out of a book but it is happening in your home. Our behavior is dictated by genes and early life influences. Cujo is a cat-dog as a result. Nice story.
