Well, both categories and tags will group posts, by default, a lot of
themes treat them practically identical, save for the tag cloud.
Google will find them all, so that's not so much a problem. The whole
thread was started around being able to switch out categories in a
permalink and resolve the same post, which is a canonical url issue.
Another idea is to have a compound category that represents the
overlaps (i.e. cats, dogs, cats-and-dogs), though this may not be
quite as optimal, especially since you couldn't get at the single
categories from the compound ones and vice versa. So do what ever
makes sense for your content.
