The Golden Retriever puppy in this video just met a little kitten, and loves the little one at first sight. Listen to the gasp of the women in the background. They are just loving this precious moment. The puppy starts licking the kitten, who is receiving this act of friendship. Then the puppy puts his paw on the kitten’s back (the same way he would to a puppy) and the kitty collapses under the weight. You can hear the squeal in the background from adoring fans. The kitten walks away for just a moment, and comes back for more time with his new puppy friend.
How to introduce puppies and kittens to each other
Some articles suggest that if we want to introduce puppies and kittens to each other who are going to live in the same home, that it would be a good idea to let the kittens and puppies have their separate space at first, until they are comfortable being aware of the other. For example, have a gate between their separate space, so they can see each other and become familiar with the scent of each other, but not yet having direct touches.
Then when the sight and scent of each other feels familiar and comfortable to both, you can let them play together for a few minutes, always supervising the interactions to make sure that everyone is playing safely.
Keep extending that time gradually until they are interacting with each other with consistent comfort and safety that it’s okay for them to be alone without supervision. This is a general guideline, you know the personality of your puppy and kitten.
For example, the two in this video have just met. It’s apparent that they take an instant liking to each other. Notice how the puppy’s friendly hug with just one paw was enough to collapse the kitten’s balance. I hope the women stay in touch so their little ones can continue to play with each other.
This is one of the most magical moments I’ve seen on videos.
