Bear witness to the most heart-melting moment: a Golden Retriever meets a kitten for the first time ever.
These doggos are ready to make friends with anyone at any time - perhaps the friendliest dog in the world?
This dog is more than ready to make a new friend. However, the kitten arches its back and gives off a defensive hiss.
Despite his attempts at play, the kitten isn’t impressed. Eventually, though, it understands that the Golden is but a gentle giant.
The story ends with the kitten snuggling up against the golden retriever, preparing to have a nap next to her new bestie.
Golden Retrievers are known for their friendly and tolerant attitude, and extremely gentle nature.
They are highly intelligent, which makes them excellent working dogs, often seen in roles such as search and rescue or as guide dogs.
Their gentle nature allows them to form bonds with other pets in the household, including cats.
However, it is always important to supervise their interactions initially to ensure a harmonious relationship.
Separate them initially and allow them to get used to each other’s scent by swapping their bedding.
Gradually introduce them to each other under supervision and reward positive interactions with treats to encourage good behavior.
