My dog uses his paws a lot. So he does reminds me of a cat sometimes. He also does some climbing on logs and jumps on tree stumps but that is because we taught him to do that. Another cat trait he is is that he wants a lot of attention and roles over a lot so people can rub his belly. Around strangers he often acts like a scaredy cat. He does not have the grace of a cat. When he lays down he drops hard so you can hear the impact. He is a big dog and when he runs around on flat ground he gallops like a horse and sometimes makes horse like noises. So it is a toss up between a horse and a cat.
