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.

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.
