Even if the butterfly-ears tempted your cat to play, the Papillon probably wouldn’t mind. They would probably see it as a friendly game. Papillons are up for anything, with anyone, all the time. Need two more reasons why a Papillon is a good option for the best dog breeds for cats? As a small dog lap lover, they can snuggle side by side on you with their kitty sibling. And they can both potty indoors, as the Papillon can learn to use an indoor potty system.
11. Tibetan spaniel
Unlike some toy breed dogs who like to whoof-it-up when they hear a pin drop, you probably won’t have too many barking issues with a Tibetan spaniel. Thank goodness, because non-stop barking could unravel your cat’s nerves. Tibbies are little fluffy lovers who are happy-go-lucky and fiercely devoted to their human. Yet they do have a little independence streak that is adorably frustrating at times. Like some cats, they favour higher places to observe and hold court. In time, your cat and Tibbie may rule you, but you won’t care because they’re the cutest monarchs you’ve ever seen.
You might want to get a pet camera to keep tabs on the shenanigans your cat and pug could get up to. Pugs were voted ‘class clown’ at doggy obedience class. You can bet they are going to be stoked to have a sidekick to join their fun and games. Your cat won’t have dull days waiting near the window and then playing hard to get when you get home anymore. Don’t worry about being the odd one out – a pug will save enough energy for you, and be ecstatic to see you when you get home.
