** There's a similar set-up with ''GetFuzzy'', ''ComicStrip/GetFuzzy'', with the male cat (Bucky), the male dog (Satchel), and the male owner (Rob). In addition, most of the reoccurring secondary characters, cat and dog alike, are male.


* In an old ''SaturdayNightLive'' WWII spy-movie sketch, one of the cliche labored password phrases was "Cats are nothing more than effeminate dogs."
** More recently on SNL, January Jones, imitating a HouseWife from TheFifties, said to start pet names with "Mr." or "Ms." depending on species. "Remember: All dogs are male; all cats are female."
* Played with in ''MyNameIsEarl''. Earl's ex-girlfriend Jessie goes through TrainingFromHell to become a BountyHunter in order to get revenge on Joy for a) stealing Earl from her and b) knocking out her two front teeth. As part of her training, Jessie trades in her cat for a large dog. Although the gender of neither one of her pets is specified, the implication of the trope is there.

* "Cat" can be a slang term for a young man like "chick" is for a young woman, though it's pretty out of use nowadays.
* Due to the popularity of cats on the internet, it's becoming less common for cats to be automatically portrayed as female, at least on the internet itself. Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that the revival in their popularity is particularly noticeable among the young adult male demographic (arguably having been started by Caturday and lolcats on 4chan, which was once very male-dominated), and often focuses on the idiosyncratic personalities of cats rather than their cuteness. As a result, this demographic seems to be more likely to be able to relate to the cats and portray them as little furry versions of themselves. For examples of this, see the viral video of the cats playing pattycake with a voiceover by two young men, and innumerable other "translations" of cat videos that seem to give the cat a male voice most of the time. No such inversion seems to have taken place with dogs and women, however.

* Due to the popularity of cats on the internet, it's becoming less common for cats to be automatically portrayed as female, at least on the internet itself. Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that the revival in their popularity is particularly noticeable among the young adult male demographic (arguably having been started by Caturday and lolcats on 4chan, which was once very male-dominated), and often focuses on the idiosyncratic personalities of cats rather than their cuteness- ergo, this demographic is more likely to be able to relate to the cats and portray them as little furry versions of themselves. For examples of this, see the viral video of the cats playing pattycake with a voiceover by two young men, and innumerable other "translations" of cat videos that seem to give the cat a male voice most of the time. No such inversion seems to have taken place with dogs and women, however.

It seems whenever cats and dogs are paired together, the dog will almost always be male while the cat will almost always be female. The cat will be sassy, intelligent, but occasionally [[CatsAreMean cruel]]. The [[DogsAreDumb dog]] will be [[MenAreUncultured crude]] but [[DumbIsGood kind]].

Often their owners will be the same sex as the animals. Ergo, women will be cat people and men will be dog people.

Even if they're not contrasted with another species of animal, strangers will tend to assume by default that dogs are male — especially large or intimidating breeds — and cats are female. So widespread is this trope that a common misconception among children is that all dogs are male, and that all cats are female.

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 ''{{Bolt}}''.

[[quoteright:264:[[{{Animaniacs}} http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kute_2728.jpg]]]]

It seems whenever cats and dogs are paired together, the dog will almost always be male while the cat will almost always be female. The cat will be sassy, intelligent, but occasionally [[CatsAreMean cruel]]. The [[DogsAreDumb dog]] will be [[MenAreUncultured crude]] but [[DumbIsGood kind]].

Often their owners will be the same sex as the animals. Ergo, women will be cat people and men will be dog people.

Even if they're not contrasted with another species of animal, strangers will tend to assume by default that dogs are male — especially large or intimidating breeds — and cats are female. So widespread is this trope that a common misconception among children is that all dogs are male, and that all cats are female.

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 ''{{Bolt}}''.

** In lower sociolects of Hebrew, ''khatula'' (חֲתוּלָה), lit. ‘she-cat’ will be used as the generic term, although with the stress on the penultimate syllable (not on the last one, like in standard Hebrew). This was formerly associated mostly with people from Jerusalem; as a matter of fact, the Maccabi-Mutsri Square in Jerusalem is usually called ‘The ''Khatulot''[[hottip:*:plural of ''khatula'']] Square’. As for dogs, the masculine is usually used for a generic term, as is the case with the vast majority of animals.
