There’s always something about seeing dogs and cats being friends. Maybe it’s because of the stereotype that wants them to be enemies, maybe because..ermmm…I don’t know.
I won’t be boring you with unnecessary words, I’ll just let them animals talk for now. These are all rescue dogs and cats that shared a life together, or just some moments. They are animals I met, and filmed and told their stories.
1 Sifis the dog and his rescue kitten Paul
2 Aragon and Simone
Aragon is an adopted dog, and his mum is one of the SCARS volunteers. In one of their walks, a young stray cat followed them, and went back home with them. Simone was fostered and rehomed a few months later. Watch their video here.
3 Meli and her stray cats
Meli is an adopted dog and her parents are active volunteers, who feed dozens of stray cats in their neighborhood. When Meli takes her morning and afternoon walks, she is always accompanied by the stray cats, who have combined her with their daily meal. Video here.
4 Charlie and his foster kittens
Charlie was rescued from the streets of Greece. While I was fostering him, I found two abandoned young kittens on the side of the road, who have been sharing a home with Charlie since them. Although he barks at cats he sees on the street, he has developed a maternal instinct towards the kittens. He looks after them, cleans them and lets them climb up his fur and sleep on him.
5 Aragon and the kittens he rescued
Aragon again, in one of his walks, came across a litter of abandoned kittens. His mum brought them home and fostered them until they they were rehomed, and Aragon was by their side, ever step of the way. Their story went viral!
6 Gina and her cat family
Gina was an abused dog, that was rescued and rehomed. One day she came across a cat family, abandoned in the trash. His mum took the family in, and Gina was their guardian angel every step of the way. Watch their video here.
7 Maggie and her friends at the dog park
Maggie is a stray cat well known to the neighborhood where she lives. Every once in a while, she crashed the nearby dog park, and just becomes one of the dogs. The last time I saw her, I was at the dog park with two of my dogs and my foster dog Lou, and Maggie showed them what it’s like to hang out with a feline friend.
8 Nero, Meli and their foster dogs
Nero and Meli are two rescued cats that share a home. Their mum is a dog rescuer, and her two cats have seen so many dogs come and go, that I could say they are more experienced than I am when it comes to K9 friends. Watch their story here.
9 Tristan, Isolde and the dogs at the shelter’s infirmary
Tristan and Isolde were found abandoned as newborn kittens, and were raised with feeding bottles. They grew up in a crate at the shelter’s infirmary, and the rescued dog that would come and go were their best friends. Watch them have fun here.
