Some of us are lucky enough to have both a cat and a dog in our lives. We are what the animal community refers to as “bipetual”. Bipetual peeps understand dog and cat behavior. Then there’s the rest of the world.

Dogs and cats are definitely different. Some traits are downright charming. While others, well, let’s just say… it’s a good thing love is unconditional!

Here are 12 charming reminders of why cats and dogs are different and why we love them oh so much:

 

1) Cats knock stuff over. Just to annoy you.

12) Cats are nimble enough to fit where they need to go and take care of their own business. While dogs bark incessantly until we obey their commands.
