Woman Helping the Cat Beat Up Their New Puppy Delights Viewers: 'Bonding'

A cat and a puppy called Sassy and Remi have left the internet in stitches after a video of them fighting in their owner's living room went viral on social media.

In the video, shared on TikTok earlier in February by the pets' owner, under the username Cholemarie4, the cat and the puppy can be seen fighting as their owner separates them, telling the cat to run away before the puppy comes back for more.

The hilarious video which has been reshared almost 400 times, comes with a caption that says: "Helping the cat beat up the new puppy."

Introducing a puppy to your cat can be challenging but it doesn't have to be traumatic for either of them. According to Cats Protection, the first step is preparing your house for the new addition—trying to accommodate the dog, with minimum disruption to your cat.

You should then swap their scents so that they get used to it and they won't smell a new pet just out of the blue, and then only allow them to meet gradually, under your supervision, and don't force a friendship between them all at once.

The video quickly attracted animal lovers from across the platform, receiving over 1.2 million views and 148,100 likes so far.
