Golden Retriever Puppy Cuddles Up to Kitten Best Friend in Adorable Video

A video capturing the blossoming bond between a golden retriever puppy and a kitten has been giving animal lovers a warm, fuzzy feeling inside.

There's something undeniably special about seeing a dog and cat defy their traditionally adversarial nature to form an unlikely friendship. In the case of Boris the kitten and Gregg the golden retriever pup, it's a bond that was forged from the moment their owner brought the young pair home at the same time.

Growing up as brothers, the two soon adapted to life in one another's company with the adorable results plain to see in a viral video shared to their TikTok account borisxgregg.

The clip has already been viewed 6.9 million times and has attracted nearly 7000 comments.

As the video shows, Gregg is only too happy to be pawed at, kneaded, licked and generally doted on by his feline friend, though that's perhaps not a huge surprise given his breed.

Golden retrievers are noted for being among the most child-friendly of dog breeds and it's a similar story when it comes to cats.

Stephanie Gibeault, MSc, a certified professional dog trainer at the American Kennel Club, ranks golden retrievers among the most feline-friendly dogs, noting their "playful personalities."

The American Kennel Club says golden retrievers "take a joyous and playful approach to life and maintain this puppyish behavior into adulthood."

"They need a good amount of daily exercise, but their adaptability and outgoing nature make them a potentially great cat companion," Gibeault said.

Gregg is certainly shaping up to be a great companion for Boris if the video his owner shared online is anything to go by.

As well as giving his kitten friend someone to play with, he's also happy to cuddle up close to his cat sibling.

In the video, the pair are shown relaxing cheek to cheek and the clip concludes on a shot of Gregg lying on top of Boris with his cat pal at blissful ease with the pet pooch.

The heart-warming nature of their relationship was not lost on those watching the video.

"What a sweet pair," Madeline Horsley wrote, with Odalissa adding, "they're the cutest brothers."

FinnPupLa thought it was "like a real life Pixar movie," while Connor Rodriguez declared that the clip was the "cutest thing I've seen all day."

Kelleighkins15 felt there was "so much love" between the pair, while pet owner rich.soupisbad declared, "this is my dream."
