Can Dogs And Cats Mate?

Dogs and cats cannot mate together and produce offspring as reproduction is species specific. However a dog and cat can mate with another breed of its own species. Dogs are members of the canine family and cats are domesticated felines. There are however quite a few similarities between a dog and cat’s reproductive processes.

For instance, both go into heat several times a year and both females may be impregnated during that time by more than one male. Both dogs and cats have a gestation period of about 66 days with litters ranging from 4 to 6 kittens or pups on average. Both animals have become domesticated and are popular pets, but no worries, the two can co-exist in your home without you having to worry about them getting together and making any little cogs or dats.
