We have basically been raised to assume that dogs and cats are mortal enemies. Just think about all the cartoon cat/dog pairs that perpetuate the idea that these animals are diametrically opposed.
We might not know where these stereotypes originated, but we do know that they are hardly always true. Take the sweet pup/kitty family in this video for example.
Gina the Boxer was brutally abused by her former owners. According to the video’s YouTube description, Gina was left chained outside 24/7 and she was regularly beaten.
This poor pup had to helplessly stand by and watch as her puppies drowned in the mud during a brutal winter. Her life was a living nightmare up until the police intervened and rescued the pup. She was then adopted thanks to the help of OrphanPet Greece.
It wasn’t long until Gina passed on this good deed by helping rescue another mama in need, a cat named Lucy and her four kittens. Gina was out for a walk when she alerted her caretaker to the kitten family and soon they too were rescued and taken in for care.
Now, Gina, Lucy, and the kittens all live together, learning to overcome the trauma of their early lives with the help of friendship! As this story proves, there is nothing that love and compassion can’t defeat. We could all learn a little lesson in kindness from this happy bunch!
