"OR" in Schema spec


At the moment, it seems to be impossible to create an "OR" statement in RDF
schema. This is because a property can only have one "range" property and
can therefore belong only to one class. How can I write a schema that says
for example that "a pet can be either a cat or a dog" and then have a list
of different breeds of cats and dogs in different classes?
