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.
