In a heartwarming display of affection, a cat was caught on camera comforting a poor puppy, who found himself all alone after his owners were forced to leave him behind.
The beautiful moment shows just how caring animals are with each other, in the most desperate of times. Thankfully, it is a happy ending story for both the kitten and the puppy!
For nearly six months, this tiny puppy has been spotted wandering around the building he once lived in. His owners were too old and sick to even care for themselves, so they have been relocated to a senior care center. But sadly, they were not allowed to bring their dog with them, so they had to leave him behind. Nonetheless, the faithful dog waited for their return day and night.
The neighbors spotted the sad puppy and some of them even offered him something to eat, but the most touching scene was when one of the residents noticed a stray kitten approaching the lonely dog and offering her support. The caring kitten put her tiny paws around the poor puppy’s neck just like she was telling him “don’t worry, your loved ones will eventually find you!”
While the cat seems to be unfamiliar with humans, the puppy is very friendly. “They don’t leave here looking at something in the same place, but the strange thing is that every time people pass by, the dog tries to check everyone’s face, unlike the cat that runs away,” a resident explained.
When the neighbors noticed the dog and his new friend were still there, even six months after, they even built them a tiny house. But the duo prefers to sleep on the stairs and keep warm one to each other.
“They hug to keep warm when they sleep together at night,” one of the neighbors said. “Maybe they think they are in the same situation since they met on the street. They know they are different, but they get along well, they comfort each other.”
Even though, everyone leaves them food and water, people are afraid they won’t make it during the fast approaching winter. So, they called a local rescue center, and the two have been eventually taken to a shelter. But not before a vet inspected them, to make sure they are healthy. The stray cat, named Nyang and her puppy friend, Meong, will remain there until a forever home will be find for both of them.
