Watch these 8+ cats hang out with their best dog pals

Cats and dogs have often been cast in the roles of opposites, even enemies in some cases. In particular, cats have --- fairly or unfairly --- earned the reputation of being standoffish and unlikely to warm up to dogs much less become friends with them. But the truth is that these two species get along more often than not, and cats can undoubtedly form friendships with the canine species.
The nine videos below are not only proof that cats and dogs can get along, but that some cats choose dogs as their best friends. So get your dog and cat, get settled on the couch, and enjoy these clips.
