In some cases, we often see dogs and cats who may not have a good relationship with each other. All those people who keep dogs and cats inside their homes can attest to this. In many cases, cats are afraid of dogs and vice versa.
But in most cases, it is the arrogant cats that dominate the company of the dog.
The point of this story is to show how cats and dogs may be just as important to one other as other members of their species.
An explosion at a defense sector facility in Donetsk City, Ukraine, started the events a few years ago. The ensuing fire soon burned the surrounding area, risking the lives of a large number of people.
Residents in the area were compelled to evacuate their houses at the drop of a hat. They didn’t have time to gather their possessions or pack their goods; they were forced to flee for their life.
On his way out of the house, one homeowner in particular managed to let his dog out into the front yard. Unexpectedly, the dog turned around and jumped back into the fire.
The owner was startled, scared, and confused, but he couldn’t follow the dog since the fires were already too high.
As a longtime animal lover, I can only image the results he was hoping for: His home, along with his dogs, was turned to ashes, and he was left with little choice but to stand helpless and watch.
Despite this, he was saved… because his dog had other plans. With a kitten in his teeth, the brave hound sprang out of the building. The kitten was straining to breathe, but was otherwise well and, most importantly, alive.
Because of this dog’s amazing intuition, a life was saved. Because of this dog’s amazing intuition, a life was saved. The kitten in question got the medical attention it required and made a full recovery.
I mean, can you imagine how amazing dogs are? I sincerely hope the nice child in this tale received the rewards and recognition he deserved!
