Cats and dogs just simply don’t go together. These two animals are like jalapeños and peanut butter or kimchi and chocolate. Bottom line: they don’t mix. Or so many people like to think.

But what happens when we put a dog and a cat together who are completely unaware of all the stereotypes that humans have about them? Well, maybe, like the animals in this video, they actually become friends!

Bo the dog was suffering from a neurological condition that caused her to have seizures and become depressed. Unable to stand seeing their pup in so much pain, her guardians adopted a cat named Jake to keep her company. When the two met, there was no fighting or bad feelings between the animals, just love, plain and simple.

Over time, Jake became Bo’s shadow and the two went everywhere together. The comfort of having Jake nearby helped Bo to cope with her illness and she was again a happy, perky dog.

Unfortunately, Bo passed away during a seizure, but there is no doubt that her last days were filled with joy and love thanks to her friend. Clearly, it doesn’t matter what the species, a true friendship can overcome all odds.
