* In the pilot of ''TheBradyBunch'', the boys have a pet dog and the girls have a pet cat. Only the dog continued to the series, and even him for not very long due to Animal Existence Failure.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': Although Rarity's cat Opalescence is female, Applejack's family owns a female dog called Winona. The ''WesternAnimation/EquestriaGirls'' spin-off blurs the lines too, as Spike becomes a dog in the human world - making it a female owner (Twilight) with a male dog.

Speaking of inversions with the owners; if a male character owns a cat, it's often a sign of shared personality, say eccentricity, or intelligence level (thus masculine/catlike) as in ''{{Garfield}}''. If a woman owns a dog, it's often a sign of shared emotional bonds (thus feminine/doglike) as in ''Disney/{{Bolt}}''. And MisterMuffykins is just about exclusively owned by a woman.

* ''Murder She Purred: A Mrs. Murthy Mystery'' is a Disney DVD whodunnit mystery told through the eyes of a corgi named Tucker and a cat named Mrs. Murthy.
** What's especially odd about this example is that it is based on a book series in which Tucker is female. Yet the film corgi speaks in a male voice. And [[DogsAreDumb seems less intelligent]] and [[BigEater more obsessed with eating]] than her book counterpart (who might be as smart as the cat characters and is less obsessed with eating than [[AscendedExtra Pewter]], another cat character).

* In ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', the Growlithe line has a 75% chance of being male. The Skitty and Glameow lines have a 75% chance of being female. That last one is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] by apparently being based on calico cats [[TruthInTelevision which really are mostly female]]; the combination of color genes involved requires two X chromosomes, so for a male to have the coloration requires that they have two Xs ''and'' a Y chromosome, which is abnormal and leads to sterility but is mostly harmless otherwise, or that their bodies be "chimeras" resulting from two zygotes merging together (a rarer condition).
** Odd thing is, [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction they can breed]]. (See the trope for [[BrainBleach more than you ever wanted to know]].)
