If you have a cat and dog, there’s a good chance you’ve spent countless hours scouring online videos posted by other pet owners. With thousands upon thousands of them, you’re never bored. Some of them cover sad events, some are hysterical, and others are downright sweet.
While some people think cats and dogs are natural enemies, that’s not true. A lot of these animals get along quite well. As a matter of fact, some of them have become best friends. Even so, when first introducing two different species of animals, you never know for sure what’s going to happen.
Friendship takes time to develop
Lisa Olsen-Plummer is a huge animal lover with a cat named Jasper. She decided to bring a sweet Beagle she called Bo into the mix. Although she was confident the two would get along just fine, they, on the other hand, weren’t initially as optimistic. As expected, they had to size each other up.
Bo was quite timid, especially whenever he was near a cat. As for Jasper, he wasn’t convinced he could trust this new addition to the family. Lisa didn’t expect them to become best friends immediately but she was hopeful that in time, they’d accept one another and live in peace.
Wow, that was fast
Initially, Jasper preferred to watch as this bundle of energy bounded around the house. Lisa explained, “Jasper was very cautious of Bo at first.” But within a very short amount of time, something happened. Lisa went on to say, “He (Jasper) stayed back and watched from a distance until one day, he went up to Bo and put his arm around him.”
She was shocked but excited
“It was almost like he was telling him, “It’s OK! Let’s play. I think that’s where Bo learned the hug from,” said Lisa. From then on, her cat and dog became more than just friends…they bonded. They acted more like brothers that couldn’t get enough of one another. Although they’re different types of animals, they played constantly.
Just watching the world go by
Lisa added, “They play hard and instigate one another. Sometimes, it causes a fight and I make them split up — just like the kids.” Fortunately, she’s been able to grab several sweet moments shared by these two. You can tell they have something special.
They fight and love hard
As energetic animals, they’re always into something. In particular, they play. And as mentioned, they’re known for getting into a few squabbles. But at the end of the day, they spend time lying side-by-side on the couch or looking out the window.
Enjoying life together
Along with a photo, Lisa captured a video of the two of them bird watching one day. In it, you see Bo jump on the sofa. Quickly after sitting down next to his buddy, he gently places his arm around him. Awe…this is true love. Now that they’re so close, Lisa can’t imagine what her household would be like without her beloved pets.
