      Lots of animals are able to associate sounds with a particular meaning, so it is possible that a dog could learn that a certain sound a cat makes is a warning, for example. I’m not an expert on dogs and cats, but in the wild there are species of monkey that understand each other’s predator calls and use cross species communication regularly, so yes it is definitely possible!
