I just released a brand new children’s picture book called Goober and Muffin, a story about the unlikely friendship between a dog and a cat. The other day, I was telling someone about the book and she then proceeded to tell me about a true-life story about a dog and a cat. Although I wrote Goober and Muffin when my son was a little boy, I’m sure there have been many instances over the years where such an unlikely friendship occurs. Here is the true-life story that was shared with me. Although I found several instances of this story posted on photo sharing sites, I was unable to track down the original source of the photos.
A Heartwarming Tale
Everyday, at the same time, this dog waits outside the cat’s house. When the cat comes out, they go for their daily walk together. Their owners are not neighbors or friends, but somehow these two connected with each other and see each other everyday. At the time these photos were taken, they had been doing this for five years.
Have you ever witnessed an unlikely friendship between different species of animals? Leave a comment, I’d love to hear about it.
