Most cats flee from a dog, while others take actions such as hissing, arching their backs and swiping at the dog. … If appropriately socialized, cats and dogs may have relationships that are not antagonistic, and dogs raised with cats may prefer the presence of cats to other dogs. Dogs and cats have been involved in a very long war, but some have chosen to put their differences aside and be friends. Relationships between cats and dogs are possible, depending on their personalities and their owners’ patience and understanding.
A stray tuxedo kitten and puppy were found together on a soccer field in Virginia. They refused to leave each other. A local woman, Angela Ward and her daughter Madison, with her friend Kristin Schultz joined her at the soccer field to rescue the animals.
The two animals are strongly bonded. As we approach them, the dog growled, while the kitten hid behind her friend. ”We are all huge animal lovers and couldn’t stand to see them left there. We have a lot of coyotes in this area that come out at night,” Angela told Love Meow. “Sure enough, these two were still cowering between the porta-potties.” They took the pair to an emergency vet to be examined.
“The dog was very sweet, just scared. The cat did have something wrong with her fur so the officer was taking both to the Emergency Vet.” The animals were moved to a local shelter. Bonded pairs are much harder to adopt than a single animal. A local rescue in Virginia Beach, Saver of Souls Pet Rescue, heard about this bonded pair and stepped up to take them. “Our rescue stepped up to the plate. We couldn’t bear to separate these sweet friends.”
The new shelter named the kitten, Morticia and the Chihuahua mix pup, Gomez. They are currently in a foster home enjoying naps in the same bed. Slowly, they are starting to trust humans and warm up to them. Once they are spayed and neutered they will be available for adoption as a pair. They rely on each other for support and comfort.
