Kitten keeps a scared dog company at the vet
The friendship between a kitten named Ginger and a dog named Anne touched the hearts of vets and staff at Greenside Animal Hospital in South Africa, who witnessed the kitten’s incredible moment of compassion for the rescued dog, who was nervous.
It all started when a kind-hearted person found the kitten in a storm drain and took her to the vet clinic for medical attention. Clinic workers cared for the kitten and then settled her in a room for her to recover and be comfortable.
A few days later, a dog that was very weak due to fleas and ticks, came to the clinic in order to be treated medically.

Since her health was not very good, they decided to put her in the same room as the kitten, but in different cages.
Suddenly, when no one expected it, the adorable Ginger disappeared from her cage and all the workers thought something had happened to her. But everyone was shocked when they found Ginger in the other cage, snuggled up with her new canine friend.
No one understood the reason for her behavior, but everything seems to indicate that the kitten felt that the dog was very scared and wanted to comfort her.
After finding Ginger, the workers took her back to her cage, where she had her litter box, food and water. However, the kitten escaped again and walked to where her new best friend was to protect her and take care of her.
Dr. Suzette Greube said, according to Amomeupet :
“They love to cuddle and even eat together. They have toys, but the kitten’s favorite pastime is chasing Anne’s tail.”
Without a doubt, this pair of friends have created a very special relationship and, despite their difficulties, they always keep each other company to support each other.
Although the kitten is a bit shy, she has always shown to be affectionate with everyone around her, while the dog prefers to stay alone with her.
With Ginger’s help, Anne gradually overcomes her fears and begins to trust the clinic staff more.
The Dr. Added:
“She’s still a bit wary of the workers when they enter the isolation room, until she sees us bringing food, so she’s happy to come out of her shell and interact.”
The veterinary hospital did not hesitate to share the beautiful story of friendship between Ginger and Anne, and it quickly went viral on the internet.
As expected, people were enchanted by the adorable story, but above all, by the friendship that the kitten and the dog formed.
