We’re all dog people here, but just because we put puppies first doesn’t mean we can’t have a little feline affection in our lives.
Dogs are undeniably perfect beings, but cats have a certain something about them, too. At the end of the day, all of our pets rule our lives. But who rules harder: cats or dogs?
In an effort to determine who rules and who drools, we’ve collected the following best dog versus cat gifs. Who will reign supreme in the battle of Fido vs. Felix? Read on to find out!
Pug’s gentle nudge won’t make the cat budge
You have to admire this dog’s restraint, but it’s the calm, collected cat who wins in the end. Point: Cat.
Maybe tugging the bed will get the cat out
Nope, that didn’t work either. Point: Cat again!
Air strike by kitten
A certain feline needs to let sleeping dogs lie. Point: Dog.
Pug and cat combo on the couch
This dog vs. cat pairing is less combative and more cooperative. They seem to be loving each other’s company, so we’ll call this one a draw.
This Cavalier King Charles spaniel is all over her kitty friend
And the cat just sits and takes it. The dog is the clear winner in this fight.
Cat massages dog’s head
This pit bull knows how to sit back, relax, and let a cat do his bidding. Double points to the dog!
Cat “massages” dog’s face
Ah, how the tables have turned. The cat is clearly the boss of this household, and she has the dog right where she wants him. Point: Cat.
This bed ain’t big enough for both dog and cat
At first, it’s hard to tell who is the victor in this particular battle for bed space. But look closely: the dog has relaxed ears and a gentle eyebrow lift, while the cat seems truly irate. Point goes to the dog for remaining cool under pressure.
Dog in the cat house
This Dachsund does his best to stake claim on the cat cubby, but his little orange nemesis won’t stand for it. Point goes to the cat.
Great Dane + orange tabby = Awww2
These two are too cute together, and judging by their position on the furniture, they both know they’re boss of the house. Still, there must be a victor, and we never said we weren’t biased. Point: Dog, of course.
Pick on someone your own size
Despite their size difference, these two playful pals seem pretty evenly matched. Points to both for being so adorable.
The bulldog is not the bully in this scenario
At first it looks like they’re about to give each other a little kiss, but then the cat shows the bulldog who’s boss. Thankfully, the only thing wounded is the dog’s pride. Unfortunately, the point goes to the cat.
Golden retriever in control
This golden asserts her status as Bed Boss with a hearty swap, but don’t worry, the cat lands on her feet. Point: Dog!
The king of the jungle and the queen of licking teeth
This giant cat and tiny dog are both traitors to their kind, but treason never looked so cute. Point: the whole world. We are all winners here today.
After tallying up all the points, it seems the ultimate pet boss of the house is…drumroll please…the dog! Was there ever any doubt? Dogs reign supreme, ruling our lives and our hearts. Still, cats are kind of cute sometimes (especially when paired with a doggy friend). In the battle of cat vs. dog, the true winners are the humans who get to love them both.
