They don't really hate cats. Depends on how they were brought up around them. I have a dog and a cat and they get along just fine.

Truthfully, I don't know. My Dad's cat and dog loved each other until recently. My cat grew up, and didn't really play with the dog as much, just ran away. New meaning to the term "Scaredy cat" right?

Because dogs are noisy and move quickly and that scares cats therefore cats hate dogs, dogs just either want to play or want the cat out or their territory

Cats are sneaky. They can jump out of nowhere, probably annoying to a dog.

I didn't know dogs or cats were capable of deciphering love from hate.
I thought it was an instinct thing.

Hey don't. Dogs see cats as playthings.

Dogs don't hate cats. Animals don't hate. However, dogs are descended from wolves, and they have what is called a "prey drive." The prey drive is excited by small animals like cats and squirrels. When dogs see these small animals, especially when they run away, their prey drive is excited, and they give chase. Some dogs will kill the animal if they catch it. There is nothing wrong with this behavior--it is inborn and natural.

Nice to see some actual knowledge (and correct spelling) on here.

Thanks, Gator. I know it's rare, but I do try to maintain my status as one of the few "voices in the wilderness," here on Ask.com. I try to be a place where the grammar-and spelling-weary traveler can rest his head for a while. ;-)

It's an instinct to chase smaller prey animals like cats, but not all dogs hate cats. Some act as if they are puppies.

Sure do. A dog dislikes anything that is more cunning and can climb a tree at the same time. Oh yeah, and they are a hell of a lot cleaner.....
