Sweet Golden Retriever Becomes “Guardian Angel” For Tiny Baby Kittens

The idea that dogs and cats are enemies is an old cliche, and many people now know that often isn’t the case. These furry animals can get along very well.

But sometimes, these animals can even go beyond this and form incredible bonds.

It takes only a few minutes of sifting through the cute animal content of the internet to find an adorable picture of inter-species friendships between cats and dogs.

Sometimes, cats and dogs can be as close friends as we are with them.

One video online that showcases how affectionate a relationship these pets can have with one another is this adorable clip of a doggo and a cat.

But not just any cat, and not just one cat, but a momma cat with five freshly birthed kittens.

There’s no aggression with these pets, just mutual affection and a sprinkle of curiosity. Who even needs a nanny, when you’ve got a Golden Retriever?

One breed of dog that always seems to find a feline friend is the Golden Retriever.

They’re known for their affability and ability to get along with anyone – and not just people! As Dogtime.com puts it:
“The breed’s friendly, tolerant attitude makes them fabulous family pets, and their intelligence makes them highly capable working dogs.”
