Is Kodi the Cat Actually a Dog?

It turns out Internet video kitty Kodi might not really be feline -- he acts terribly canine.

So, remember how last week I wrote about how I’m actually a cat?

What if your cat was actually a dog?

Little Kodi cat (who showed us how to walk a human as well as how to intimidate humans with fine feline dance moves) is either having an identity crisis or he really is a dog trapped in a cat’s body. In this video, Kodi’s human friend lists all the reasons why the young cat might actually be a canine.

Among Kodi’s un-feline behavior, Kodi demonstrations a penchant for playing fetch, growling, and walking around on a leash.

Or maybe this is species-ism in action? Like, why can’t a cat act like a dog? Can only dogs act like dogs? Are the joys of fetch reserved for canines only? What if a cat really loves playing fetch? Shouldn’t that cat be able to play fetch if he likes?

So watch the video and let us know: Is Kodi really a dog trapped in a cat’s body? Or is he just a cat that likes to break down traditional species conventions?

Dog or cat, there’s one thing we know for sure about Kodi: He’s totally adorable.

In what ways does your cat act like a dog?

Speaking of weird cats, here are some strange cat-breed folktales, as well as some head-scratching stock photos of cats and seven funny cats who use Twitter.
