Who says cats and dogs don’t get along? Sometimes they do! They can become the best of friends or just tolerate each other. Either way, there are lots of families that have both cats and dogs. I had a beautiful Himalayan named Nikki  along with 5 dogs for many years myself.

This gallery post features kitties with Chihuahuas! Enjoy the cuteness!

kitten and Chihuahua

How adorable is this duo? Their names are Cookie and Cat (I’m assuming the kitten is Cat). Sonja Ramona Schröder is the pet parent.

Here’s another one from Sonja Ramona Schröder but I don’t know their names. Adorable puppy!

Maxine and Lucy the cat and Chihuahua

This is Maxine and Lucy. With their similar coloring, they look like sisters, don’t they? Sharon Gray Lynn Baker is their mommy.

Look at these 2 sharing the back of the couch. Such pretty faces! Billy Nicholson‎ is the pet parent.

Tobi and Kiki the Chihuahua and cat

This is Tobi and Kiki. Their mom Bonnie Thibodeaux‎ says they love each other but Tobi doesn’t look too thrilled to have Kiki up in his chair here, does he?

Charlie and Buttercup the Cat and the Chihuahua

I love this photo of Buttercup and Charlie. Buttercup is rubbing up against Charlie and Charlie is wanting to play. So cute! Sharon Pierson Taylor is their mom.

Boots and Angel the cat and Chihuahua

These 2 sleepy fur babies are Boots and Angel.  Anne Taylor is their mom.

The rest of these photos are either stock photos or photos readers have sent me but I don’t have any info about them.

chi and cat

This is just a stock photo I had in my files. The cat licking it’s lips makes me wonder if it wants to eat the Chi. LOL

Another cute stock photo. That chi is so completely relaxed with a cat on his back.

I wonder what these 3 are looking at? Treats maybe?

The Chihuahua is using the cat as a pillow. Complete trust!

puppy and kitten

Isn’t this puppy and kitten precious? I just want to kiss their little noses.

That’s it for the Cat and Chi post. Do you have a cat along with dogs too?  Do they get along? I’d love to see a photo of them. just leave it in the comments if you want or just tell us about your little fur family, if you’d rather.

When my husband and I got married, we both had a cat. It took them over a year before they started getting along. When we brought our 1st chi home, he was a year old, the cats were both around 8 years. It only took them a month to start playing. They would run through the housecond like they were playing tag, or would be in front going down the hall, then another would be in front coming back. For years later we brought home a 5 week old chi. I thought my husbands female wounder mother him, but she didn't seem to like him much. It was my male cat that took care of him. They were so cute to watch. The cats died about 3 years ago. Botherwise boys seem lost without them.

That's such a sweet story of cats and dogs becoming family.

Why do my chi always stare at me when there are others in the room he only stares at me

All the pics were so sweet! We have two kittys. Mama is a sweet little calico and Sister is a big Maine coon. They tolorate BO and Pinto and will sometimes kiss noses but have shown my puppys, Rosa and William , to not come any closer, lol.........They would never lay down and cuddle and sleep with any of the furbabies. Mama and Sister lay down and cuddle each other only. They kiss and hug and on occassion give each other a love hub says they are lesbians....... they only kiss each other!!!!!!!!
