We have seen countless stories of cats and dogs who have put their differences aside and became best friends, but this story of a cat and dog friendship is unlike any we’ve seen before. Scout the kitten was brought into the home of Charlie the dog when she was no more than 5 and a half weeks old. Whether Charlie had a say in the matter or not is unknown, but Scout curled herself right in the middle of Charlie’s lap and just like that their friendship was set.

Scout refused to sleep as a kitten unless Charlie was there for cuddles.

The world can be scary as a small kitten, but with a trusty dog BFF everything is better.

Charlie was an older dog, so he completely understood Scout’s love of naps.

These two did everything together.

Wherever Scout went, Charlie was sure to follow.

One of Scout’s favorite things was smelling Charlie’s ears. You can tell he also loved it …

Sadly, Charlie developed cancer and eventually passed away. Both Scout and her guardian were absolutely heart broken. Scout’s guardian set up an iPad on Charlie’s dog bed and played videos of him for Scout.

Even though this was not the same as having the real Charlie, Scout still wanted to cuddle.

Scout misses Charlie, but we know that their friendship will far outlast any constraint of time. Rest in peace Charlie.

Hopefully they got the kitten a new cuddle friend. I've set up pictures for my dogs when one dies of age or illness. It helps until I can find another best friend.

What a brilliant idea. I only recently got my first cat and discovered that unlike dogs, they can see screens. It\'s obviously a comfort to Scout. Bless you both as you help each other through your grief.

Such a sweet, heartfelt story. They really were BFFs! I\'m sure they were perfect for each other in every way, and so sweet and loveable. RIP Charlie, you were a good soul. Now, Scout looks so sad and lonely. I hope you\'re considering a new playmate...you simply must! I want an update.

While growing up with my four other siblings our home was a veritable menagerie.
We had dogs always at least three cats ducks chickens hamsters guinea pigs ant farms lizards etc.
But our dog Chula was the sweetest thing she had several litters of pups now get on me this was fifty years ago before spaying and neutering were stingily recommended.
One day my younger brother and i saw Chula tramping back and forth in our back yard caring "something" in her mouth we knew she hadn\'t given birth in quite some time so my brother went out to see what she had six tiny kittens she had discovered laying in a patch of dirt and grass new born with mama no where to be found so she took it upon herself to gently take each newborn and place them safely in a grassy area and began nursing them when they became old enough we made sure they went to either our very large extended family or close friends but i have never forgotten that Chula did the night before i was married she left a hole in our hearts this was a lovely story.

After reading about Scout and Charlie, I\'m sitting here with tears in my eyes, going,"Awwwww, awwwww, awwwwwwww!" at 3:30 A.M. with my kitties Hoover and Joey waiting for me to come to bed. They are surely going to get extra snuggles now.

Its not about cruelty .. Just a relationship between a cat and a dog .. And how the owner comforted the cat when the dog got older and passed away ❤️
