We all know how dogs and cats don’t get along so well. But, know this, as long as the world exists, it’ll keep surprising you with something new. Generally, it’s believed that dogs and cats hate each other. Some even consider them as arch rivals. Which is even somewhat true, however, what we are about to show you today will completely blow your mind.
This dog in the post below probably love cats more than any other animal in existence. He takes care of rescue kittens just like his own babies. He plays with them, cuddles with them, and even bathes them. When his owner first noticed his love for cats he saw this as a perfect opportunity to make him comfort rescue kittens that were brought to their cat shelter.
Scroll on below and see just how loving Raylan the dog truly is!
“Raylan’s a very smart dog who is eager to please and up for any adventure.” Owner told Bored Panda.
“I found out he liked cats when we brought our first foster kitten (Watson) home 6 years ago when Raylan was already 3 years old.“
“He immediately just wanted to play with him and was so gentle and patient. Watson’s now our neighbour and they hang out frequently.”
“Raylan is a purebred mutt who enjoys getting beer for loved ones, road trips, and cuddling with his foster kittens.” According to Ryan’s Instagram description.
“Raylan was adopted from a high-kill shelter where he was going to be euthanized.“
“Nobody wanted him because he was too high energy and untrained – but clearly no one had tried to train him.”
Raylan is a true hero! The way he’s caring for these kittens, I bet when they grow up they’ll show love and affection to dogs wherever they see them. It’ll also help cats get along with dogs in their new forever homes when they get adopted. Talk about being thoughtful!
In 9 years of time, Raylan has fostered over 60 kittens.
Ryan always took great care of his kittens. The owner explained: “He cleans them constantly (which is very very helpful when they’re really young), as well as playing with them and carrying them around.”
“He also stops them if they try to scratch the sofa.”
The owner explained how Rylan reacts when it’s time for kittens to leave. “He’s usually ready for a rest when the kittens leave and never seems sad afterwards.”
“But after a few weeks of alone time he starts to get sad if I don’t get new kittens – and when new kittens come he’s always so happy and excited. New kitten day is his favourite day!”
Raylan become famous when a video of him and two kittens falling onto him went viral.
The video reached over 64k views and it was evident from the comments just how much people loved Raylan and everything that he does.
“I don’t know how he hasn’t gone viral before! We’ve been doing this for years and he’s so amazing,” the owner said.
Who would’ve thought that such a high-energy dog would one day be so calm and gentle?
