When it comes to animals, we’ve witnessed many unusual friendships, but this one has to be the sweetest of all. Why? Because it involves a rescue, a cat, and a dog. Sounds interesting, right?
This story takes place during a harsh winter when everything is covered in huge piles of snow. One tiny dog realizes how a kitten is freezing so he decides to come to her rescue.
So, next time when someone says how canines and felines are born enemies, just show them this story.
The poor kitten is beyond terrified after she found herself in the mouth of a dog. She has to think how her life is over and there is nothing she could do. To be honest, we thought the same thing until we realized the hero dog is there to save her from the cold weather and get her to a safe place. Isn’t this amazing?
The doggy’s mom is surprised when she sees what her furry pet is doing so she decides to take a video and share it with the rest of us, and we are so glad she did.
As the dog heads to his doggy house, the cat finally realizes she won’t get killed or something, and she is relieved. Her new friend is glad to welcome her into his place, and she is happy to accept the generous offer. She will finally get to feel the coziness of a warm blanket and a home.
It’s truly incredible how animals can be so empathetic and considerate for those in need of help. This dog might be tiny, but he is a big hero that stole the hearts of every animal lover out there, and yes, showed everyone how animals have feelings too.
Take a look at the amazing rescue in the video below.
The German youth began caring for injured animals in his home and dreamed of on e day becoming a veterinarian.
Then when he became older, Valentin, who also loved to travel, decided to combine his two interests.
But he never could have imagined where his interests would lead him…
Valentin first traveled to Canada, where he worked in an oil field. But because he always had an interest in cats, he soon moved on to a place where he knew there were some really big cats—Africa.
On a farm in Namibia, Valentin met Mikkel Legarth from Denmark. The two men’s mutual love and passion for wildlife—and especially the big cats—formed the foundation of their friendship.
Together, the men decided to start a wilderness project, with a focus on creating a stronger bond and respect between people and nature.
Formed in 2009, the Modisa Wildlife Project now works to conserve wildlife in Botswana.
During the past decades, wildlife in Botswana has declined by over 60 percent due to poaching, a lack of prey, and human exploitation of nature.
Valentin and Mikkel are working hard to break this trend.
And thanks to a unique but wonderful friendship, more and more people are becoming aware of the organization.
Four years ago, Valentin found an abandoned lion cub in the wilderness. She was perhaps only 10 days old and her mother had left without a trace. And if Valentine hadn’t found her, she would have certainly died.
Valentin named the lion cub Sirga.
She survived after being looked after by her new father, who fed her a mixture of cream, milk, eggs, and vitamins on a drip.
During the following months, the pair developed a strong bond, which has only grown stronger over the years.
The little lion cub weighed 20 pounds (9 kg) when she was found, but today, Sirga today weighs more than 300 pounds (136 kg).
But she has hardly forgotten who rescued her.
Is there any doubt that these two are best friends?
According to Valentin, Sirga is always happy to see him.
Presumably, she thinks that Valentine is part of the same pack.
Although Sirga may seem like a big, cuddly cat, the reality is different.
She doesn’t like strangers—and only Valentin is allowed to feed her.
“We don’t want Sirga to be like other lions in captivity that are fed by constant streams of tourists,” Valentin told the Daily Express.
She catches antelope and has learned how to prowl, wait in ambush, and be patient—everything she needs to be a successful hunter.
But when it comes to Valentine, it’s only love that Sirga wants.
“I do not believe she will ever turn on me and I have never been worried,” Valentin told the Daily Express. “We trust each other completely and if I tell her to back off she listens.”
Days can go by without Sirga and Valentin meeting, but once they reunite, it’s like nothing has happened.
