Only a small percentage of individuals still believe in the term “like cats and dogs.” Not only can we discover videos of these pets coexisting in perfect peace, but we can also find stories like the one of a little dog that did everything he could to save a kitten’s life.
Officer Michelle Smith was there to witness this lovely union. She was alerted to the situation of a dog that was observed barking regularly as a member of Anderson’s Animal Control Service, Anderson County PAWS.
Because the neighbors thought the dog was in danger, they decided to enlist the help of skilled individuals.
When Michelle Smith arrived at the scene, she saw the dog at the foot of a hill in a ravine, but she quickly realized she wasn’t alone: close to her was a young kitten in distress.
Michelle explained, “They were at the bottom of a steep embankment, at the bottom of the ravine.”
Michelle saw the dog had a collar and that she did not split from the kitten under any circumstances when she came closer to where this unusual combination was.
Michelle initially looked for the shih tzu pups, but she couldn’t see any other animals than these two.
The woman believes that the dog heard the kitten and went down to investigate, then stayed at her side to look after her.
Despite the fact that the noble-hearted animal had the ability to depart, he did not want to forsake the feline and instead sought assistance in some way. The two were transferred to the shelter, where they were treated and examined to determine their health status.
The dog’s bond to this small cat is so strong that they were unable to separate them once they arrived at the shelter. Something that was to be anticipated, given the extraordinary bond that they have.
Michelle first assumed that, like in many other occasions, the dog had a litter of puppies and that she would just adopt the kitten as another, to warm her, feed her, and keep her alive, but this was not the case.
This good canine created the circumstances just to look after the kitten and make sure she was healthy. He was able to milk her despite not having any puppies of his own and does not leave her alone at any time.
The vets found that both the dog and her lovely kitten were in ideal shape to be adopted and find a new home after a medical examination.
She was given the name Goldie, and the kitten was given the name Kate. These names were given to them in honor of Kate Hudson and Goldie Hawn.
When Joe and his wife heard about the two adorable creatures, they fell in love right away and asked to adopt them. They determined in the shelter after a thorough examination that he was the ideal family member.
