“Okay, pretty boy. Your good looks may have gotten to Kitty, but they just make me jealous and want to punch you even more!”
Dudley Puppy, Diary of a Mad Cat

There are rumors, among many fans, that Dudley and Kitty have a relationship. Though, it seems to start as a love/hate relationship, they begin to warm up to one another and their relationship starts to develop.

Butch Hartman, during December of 2011, confirmed that there would be a half-hour episode that might show their relationship become more apparent.[1] He later revealed, during February of 2012, that it would be airing around the summer or fall 2012 time period. [2] It is assumed that he was referring to Til Doom Do Us Part, which strangely aired in the US two years later.

On a stream done by Hartman in December of 2017, he stated that he personally viewed them having more of a brother-sister relationship instead of a romantic relationship. [3]
