It is a common stereotype that cats and dogs are natural enemies, to the point that “fighting like cats and dogs” is a popular phrase. But countless animal lovers have domestic cats and dogs under one roof, and they generally get along well. And a heartwarming video proves that cats and dogs not only get along, they can be true soul mates as well.
Lisa Olsen Plummer has a beagle named Bo and a cat named Jasper. When she first brought Bo home, she wasn’t sure how the pets would get along – they didn’t fight, they just felt awkward.
“Jasper was very careful with Bo at first,” Lisa told The Dodo. “He stayed behind and watched from a distance.”
But eventually the two of them warmed up to each other and Bo started asking Jasper to play. The two of them became best friends and playmates … even if they play a little rough. “They play hard and goad each other,” said Lisa.
“Sometimes it provokes an argument and I get them to separate, like children.”
Sure, it may seem like they are actually fighting, but one movie clears all doubts that they are both not best friends at all. One day, Bo and Jasper took a break from their difficult chases to sit by the window and quietly watch the birds. Then, showing wonderful love, Bo put his paw on the cat’s shoulder.
This is true love. It is clear that these two are best friends for life.
