How do you make inter-special relationships work in a cartoon/comic?

In funny animal cartoons, you see things like inter-special couplings often:

Horace Horsecollar with Clarabelle Cow
Pepe Le Pew with Penelope Pussycat
Kermit with Miss Piggy

I'm writing about streetfighting cats and dogs - I might have something like cats dating dogs, and vice versa, but how would inter-special marriage work?

They can't procreate and have children.

I am curious- please help.

Lol. THEY ARE FUNNY ANIMALS - humanoid animals that act like people - NOT REAL PEOPLE.

@farmerman,
It's a CARTOON - you are taking this a little TOO seriously.

@JGoldman10,
Do you believe that a sense of humor, even one that would dwell on dark humor, is essential for an author of fiction?

Pepe le Pew is a sex pest. Is that your idea of romance? Do you paint a white stripe down the backs of potential suitors, then chase after them? When you get them cornered, do you break wind constantly? You're a bit of a perve Goldie. No wonder you're into bleaching.

Sound like you's be-a blaspheming, the Lord shalt smite you with His mighty smiter.

Yup, he's giitin' ready to hit the SMITE button right now.

@Ben Smith,
Quote from Futurama.

Leela: What else can we slay? Is that a hobbit over there?
Bender: No, that's a hobo and a rabbit. But they're making a hobbit.

Pepe Le Pew has had his passport confiscated. Criminal prosecution has been stalled over questions about Penelope Pussycat's credibility.

Looks like Bugs and that cat were an item.

@JGoldman10,
You'd be doing well if your cartoon even achieves 1% of the popularity of Family Guy.
A brilliant cartoon written by real talented people.
