Some breeds get along with cats better than others, it seems obvious to say. But in addition, much of whether a pet-friendly household works has to do with the environment being suited to them in the first place.
Let’s see how the beloved corgi gets along with cats.
The general consensus seems to be that dogs of a similar size to cats will be better pairings. Corgis fit this requirement perfectly, even if their personalities suggest they believe otherwise.
Corgis are particularly prone to herding when they interact with animals smaller than themselves. In most cases, though, you won’t have this problem with cats.
Amusing as it sounds, a corgi may regard a small cat as a vermin-like pest. It’s another instinctual behavior that comes from the corgi’s history of being a working farm dog.
If you are fortunate enough to have planned this properly, the best advice is to introduce both pets to the home together when they are young – a puppy and a kitten, respectively.
