Like a kitty, the whippet enjoys spending his day relaxing around the house. And though he enjoys a run or two outside, similar to the cat he’s intelligent and quiet.

Daring, courageous and extremely pleasant to be around, the Shiba Inu is cat-like in more than just his temperament. He enjoys keeping himself clean and groomed, and you’ll often catch this pup meticulously licking himself like his kitty friends do.

Laid-back like most cat breeds, the Mi-Ki is a very relaxed pooch. Liking all humans — strangers included — he’s a very friendly guy. Smart and adaptable, it’s difficult for a human to dislike being around a loving breed such as this.
