We've patiently read, heard and talked about the whole "cats and dogs are mortal enemies" thing, but sometimes it's necessary to reboot everyone's unswerving thinking on the matter. The simple fact is that cats and dogs are not the enemies they're made out to be. In fact, they often appear to be ready to help each other when in need… and the video below is proof of it!
Scroll to end of article for video.
In the video, posted by a woman in Turkey in late 2018, a cat is obviously in trouble after somehow falling in deep water. Screeching for help, there's no one around to jump in…until the dog arrives. The pooch obviously heard the cat's cries and sprang into action.
With the cat clinging for her life on a structure in the pond, the dog paces back and forth trying to find a way to help it. He then puts his face up to the cat and gets clawed (!), but stays the course until he realizes he must jump in to save the cat.
And jump in he does! Bravely entering the water, the canine savior swims underneath the cat, then lifts him up on his back. The terrified cat plays along and is finally on dry land. Then the tired dog must get himself out, which he tries to do repeatedly before meeting with success.
WATCH THE VIDEO HERE:
The kitty and doggy both run to safety, thus creating a happy wrap-up. But our obvious question, in the end, is why the woman behind the camera didn't do anything to help!? We're hoping it wasn't simply to ensure herself a viral video…
Still, the dog in this video is unquestionably a hero.We hope he at least got an extra round of doggie treats once he'd dried off!
