There’s something healthy about seeing a cat and a dog get along and live together like two siblings.
Anyone who has had both will attest that dogs and cats can get along, but it isn’t always that straightforward. Some dog breeds are not as trusting, and companionship is not always feasible.
But, for anyone who, like me, has watched their two favourite pets get along and love playing together, it’s incredible to witness their beautiful bond.
A great foster family opted to adopt a five-day-old Chihuahua, whom they eventually called Casanova, a little more than a month ago.
The family had to care for him constantly because he was just born. They were soon informed of a little stray kitten on the street.
Given their current workload, it would be difficult for them to adopt a cat, but they couldn’t just say no to someone who needed their assistance.
Casanova’s first few days were difficult. Because he lacked a mother, his human guardians had to do everything they could just to keep him alive.
They still felt like they could do more for him. So, when the stray kitten was finally in their care, the family had the most fantastic idea.
The pair will live together, and the stray kitten will care for her new younger sister.
When the cat, who had been renamed Cheech, was finally introduced to Casanova, she seemed genuinely intrigued and amused by the small dog.
Cheech introduced herself by kissing Casanova’s small nose. It just took a second for the connection to become apparent, and the new cat and dog pair was now inseparable.
They spend nearly every waking time together and even like to slumber together.
Cheech likes to sleep with his small paws wrapped over her brother, which is just the cutest thing imaginable.
Their tale is quite touching, and the two siblings are absolutely lovely together.
Despite their difficulties so early in their lives, the two have found each other and will not be easily separated.
I hope they have many fantastic adventures together as they grow up and find a family who will love and care for them.
