According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), despite the popular belief that cats and dogs don't get along, if properly socialized, they can actually live in harmony!

Some dog breeds are more likely to get along with cats than others, these include toy breeds, which are known to be affectionate and sociable. Breeds that are not hunters by nature also make a great match for a cat.

Among the most friendly breeds to have around a cat are basset hounds, beagles, bulldogs, cavalier king Charles spaniels, collies, golden retrievers, Labrador retrievers, papillons and pugs, according to the AKC.

The video quickly went viral, attracting animal lovers from across the platform, and it has received over 813,800 views and 81,700 likes so far.

One user, small kat, commented: "Honestly this is a power move cuz they can terrorize each other with their teeth rather than our ankles." And Chaseburger said: "My puppy and kitten bully each other and jump onto each other."

Another user, hriehl73, commented: "So in love with these two!! Can you post more of them. They make everyone's day Happy." And Sue said: "Overload of cuteness!!"

Anna Montana wrote: "I would get nothing done. SO adorable." And amynix92 said: "Best buddies forever." Janice Fraser added: "Puppy and kitten = lifelong entertainment."

Josy-Ann L'Espérance joked: "I have three cats and 2 dogs. And if I say no to the cats doing something my dogs bully them." And Nele added: "An orange one? Hope [you're] ready for the chaos hahaha."
