Dogs and cats are the two most popular animals to keep as domestic pets. Both these animals are easy to take care of and, because of their relatively small size, easy to handle in an urban environment. Dogs and cats can comfortably live in the same space as humans without much bother.

Both these animals are also very adaptable which makes them perfectly suited to the requirements of urban life.

Raising Puppies and Kittens Together

Some people wish to raise puppies and kittens together in the same environment. Raising puppies and kittens together does create some concern, but with a few simple steps, it is extremely easy to raise puppies and kittens together.

Puppies and kittens are both fragile animals when they are young. However, their rapid growth ensures that they are able to take care of themselves very quickly. The one area of concern when raising a puppy and kitten together is the relationship between the two pets. It is important for the owner to establish some rules for the relationship between the two animals otherwise there will be problems.

When choosing a breed of pet, particularly when choosing the dog breed, it is important to ensure that the breed is a less aggressive one. Aggressive dogs may attack cats that intrude into their space. The dog breed should also be a small or medium sized breed as larger dogs may injure cats easily without even realizing that they are causing harm.

Once the breed of puppies and kittens are chosen, the owner can begin with taking care of them. Both these animals have specific care requirements that need to be taken care of. Nutrition is also different for both these breeds and must be handled based on the unique requirement of each pet. Rule enforcement begins at the early stage itself. If there is any fight or aggression between the two pets, it is important for the owner to immediately intervene and lay down the law, so to speak. This can be done by punishing the pets or admonishing them for their behavior.
