Of course not! And cats Serafine and Josefine and their dog buddy Billy are living proof of this fact; they live happily together with their owners Katrien and Hans. So, what’s their secret? Live and let live, and always give each other plenty of space.
Of course not! Cats Serafine and Josefine have been best buddies with dog Billy right from the start, and they live happily together with their owners Katrien and Hans. And if the cats ever start playing up, the people in the house always have a solution up their sleeve.
Katrien is a real cat-lover, while Hans is crazy about dogs. “But love conquers all”, laughs Katrien. “When we moved in together, my two cats Serafine and Josefine came with me, and Hans brought his dog, Billy. And it turned out that our pets got along with each other just as well as we did!”
Of course, cats will never lose their instinct to hunt. “Serafine and Josefine love to hunt their motorised toy mouse and other toys, chasing them round and round their scratching post”, says Katrien. “They go completely wild until I decide it’s time to calm them down again by stroking and combing them.”
Billy usually stays pretty calm while all the crazy games are going on. “Sometimes it all gets a bit much for both of us”, admits Hans. “When that happens, I grab our pooch and we head out for a bike ride. He’s always really comfortable in his special pet bike trailer which I pull behind the bike. It’s dry and safe, too, thanks to the zip closure, reflectors and air vents.”
