Is this really true for peaceful dogs? IIRC, only hostile dogs/cats/horses will automatically be hungry, and hungry domestic animals will eat people food (and thereby be tamed).

"Throwing a meaty treat, a safe fresh meat-based corpse, or processed human food at a hostile or peaceful dog will tame it."

Is there any difference between cats and dogs for gameplay purposes? Dr. 8-Bit 19:23, June 15, 2010 (UTC)

"During a full moon" - "You have a chance of not being able to tame dogs at night.". To the best of my knowledge there is no other difference in Vanilla. In SLASH'EM, pets will not commit cannibalism (unless starving IIRC), so a dog will not eat other d and a cat will not eat other f. -- Qazmlpok 19:36, June 15, 2010 (UTC)
Dogs seem to stay closer to the player. I don't know why. Tjr 14:06, June 16, 2010 (UTC)
