The video posted by @milkymutton shows a Husky watching a kitten and its mother play and stepping in when they started bunny kicking because the pup thought the kitten was getting hurt. While dogs and cats don’t often get along, the sweet video of the Husky protecting the kitten tugged on the heartstrings of many TikTok users.

“My dog protects the kittens at all cost,” the caption reads.

One user commented, “he/she knows those bunny kick ain’t no joke.”

Cats do bunny kicks as a playful behavior, usually when they are playing with toys or interacting with other cats. Bunny kicking is a sign that your cat is feeling playful, energetic, and happy.

A dog protecting a cat can be a sign of a strong bond and a healthy relationship between the two animals. If you notice your dog showing protective behavior towards a cat, it is important to continue to monitor their interactions and ensure that both animals are safe and happy.
