Our cats can form some pretty unusual friendships, like the feline in the video above! Watch as the kitty snuggles up to their horse pal. It seems like the horse is enjoying the cat’s love and attention, too!
These two best buddies show us that friends come in all shapes, sizes, and species! We humans could all take a lesson from these animal companions.
A lot of people think of cats as solitary animals, but that’s not always the case. In fact, many cats are outgoing and loving to people and other animals, as the cat in the video shows! Here are a few things you should know about the myth of the solitary cat.
Are Cats Solitary Pets?
Despite the cliché about cats preferring to be loners, we cat lovers know that our animals can actually be quite affectionate and loving!
Here are a few facts to know about cats before you judge them as solitary animals:
- Cats don’t always take to newcomers right away. Many cats are cautious and hide when they see new people or animals. But once they have a chance to warm up, they’re more likely to investigate and interact.
- Cats are more subtle than other animals, like dogs. They might rub against your leg to show affection, rather than jumping up and down or wagging their tails.
- Cats can be demanding of affection too! Many cats will jump on laps, walk across keyboards, or sleep right on your pillow, covering your face just to get close to you.
- Cats are individuals. Some prefer to have their own space, while others can make friends with everyone, including different species, like the cat above!
Keep in mind that if you plan to bring home a new animal pal for your cat, it’s best to let them meet each other before you fully commit. Even outgoing cats may not take to every new pet they meet. Go slowly and use caution when making introductions!
