Most people think that dogs and cats are arch enemies. But in truth, they can hang out with each other pretty well.
According to American Kennel Club, there are specific breeds that will likely get along well with cats than the rest. So with the right pair, the cat and dog can have a harmonious and friendly relationship.
One example is the Toy Group. These loving and sociable dogs under this group were bred to be lap warmers and companions.
Another one is the Sporting Group whose members are very genial. These easygoing dogs love making friends with almost anyone they come together with, including felines.
Golden Retrievers, in particular, are playful creatures. They are very adaptable and sociable, making them excellent cat companions.
What we know as the man's best friend can be a best friend to any other species, including cats. We may have seen countless videos of cats and dogs being great buddies.
But you cannot deny how heartwarming each one is. Today, we're looking at a story of a caring dog's compassion for a cat.
Your heart will be touched when you witness how caring the dog is for the poor kitten. It will probably make you forget these pair of species are stereotypical enemies.
The Golden Retriever saw a malnourished kitten. Instead of ignoring the little one, the dog grabbed him with his mouth.
The owner was waiting for the dog. The Retriever brought the poor, malnourished creature with him to the car.
Once they got home, the dog's owner fed the little one. Things started to improve for him.
Unexpectedly, the Golden Retriever stayed and watch over the kitten. It seems that the canine knows that the feline is currently in bad shape at the time.
The dog just had pure love for his newfound friend. He gave the cat all the care he needed.
They became inseparable best of friends. The bond they formed is truly heartwarming.
It tells us that animals, no matter what kind they are, can get along very well. We ought to learn from these two friends too!
American Kennel Club adds that any dog is capable of socializing with cats. Proper introduction between the two creatures can help them live peacefully with one another.
It's also important that the cat has an escape route in case the dog gets too playful. Don't leave them unattended unless they're already used to each other company.
The personalities of these pets are also a factor. For example, old cats may not have the energy to play with active puppies.
Thankfully, the Golden Retriever and the kitten are a good match. We're pretty sure they'll be the best of friends for a very long time.
