Watch: Lessons in Trust From a Dog and a Cat
Everyone knows a dogs' reputation for being loyal, hence the endearing nickname "man's best friend." Dogs like to belong in a pack, and their behavior of wanting to bond—whether it be with humans, dogs, or other animals, reflects that. Cats, on the other hand, are more independent, able to entertain themselves, and content to be alone for long stretches of time, relaxing in a ball, or chasing their tails. While there's been no definitive research on the matter of which domestic pet is more loyal—to my knowledge—this adorable video might suggest that in fact, dogs can be more trusted.
Moral of the story? Watch your back around your furry feline friends.
