I’m sure a lot of you have seen cute videos of cats hugging dogs on social media right? They are everywhere! Little T can spend ages watching cat videos on you tube, you’ll hear her laughing her little head off. I don’t blame here, some are really, really hilarious.
As for those videos of cats who seem to really love their doggie friends, are they really real?
Exhibit A: This dog was apparently missing for ten days. The cat missed him so much that it actually couldn’t stop hugging him. The first time I saw this video, I kept expecting the cat to suddenly pounce her little claws on the dog’s neck, but no, it just kept hugging the dog, as if it really missed its furry friend. Real or not?
Exhibit B: Sweet moments between cats and dogs. Really? No, hissing, clawing or death stares?
While I don’t expect Boots and Doc to have this kind of relationship, though it would be nice if they did. At the moment, Boots hates Doc with a passion, especially since he likes to steal her food.
On the other hand, Doc I think likes her. He likes to please you see and if he had his way, he would like everyone to love him, like really love him. After all, who would say no to this face?
Actually, I know who would. This one:
There aren’t any cuddles happening between Boots and Doc in our house, more like hissing, barking and “You move you die” looks from Boots.
I don’t doubt the authenticity of those videos. I’m sure they’re real and not staged. I just wish Boots and Doc would learn how to tolerate each other without the cat going wild when he’s around.
Do you have a cat and a dog too?
What’s their relationship like?
Are they like the animals in the videos, or more like Boots and Doc?
