Is there a disease where a dog thinks it is another animal like a cat?

    No, but some dogs and/or dog breeds are very cat-like in their nature. We had a rescue greyhound who "became" a cat. They are raised in cages with no socialization, and have no clue what it means to be a dog. We had four cats, and the dog imprinted on them. She slept in the sun with them, played like them (in the manner how she'd flip the toys, and pounce on them just like the cats did). We joked that she was secretly a cat in a dog body :) It's not a disease, it can be the breed, or in our case - imprinting.

    Hahaha! It doesn't take a disease for that to happen.

    No, this mostly has to do with behavior and socialization. Dogs are highly trainable and sociable, especially in their youth. If you raise them with cats when they're young, they will behave like a cat.

    That is a catastrophic problem. [Anthropomorphize means humans think animals are people.]

    Yes, it’s called “p ussy fever” and your dog should be put down.

    Probably not, but some dogs might act a little like cats. Some cats also act like dogs!
