Are you a cat person or a dog person? Most people have a strong preference for their pet of choice. Others are more open minded, and share their home with both species. There is just one potential problem with these harmonious households: Dogs, as you probably know, are very impressionable. Occasionally, dogs who are raised alongside cats may get confused about which species they belong to, and can develop cat-like habits.

These confused pups have an adorable identity crisis… and it’s the cutest thing ever!

In case you were wondering, I don’t think this works the other way around. At least, I haven’t seen many cats being walked on a leash and playing fetch.
