Vegan prescriptivism

Just ran across this site which promotes 'animal friendly' alternatives to
common sayings.  Includes suggestion that you say "I have a bean to pick
with you" rather than "I have a bone to pick with you."

I was actually looking to find other expressions where dog/cat are
contrasted (other than 'raining cats & dogs' and 'fight like cats & dogs').
If you know of any, let me know, please.
