When they are together, they are both more content and gregarious.
Most people tend to think that dogs and cats are inimical, that they can’t be friends, and that they should always be kept apart.
In just one day, Morticia the cat and Gomez the dog were able to persuade an entire stadium of people that this wasn’t the case.
At Hampton Soccer Park in Hampton, Virginia, a Good Samaritan noticed a small dog named Gomez and a tiny black cat named Morticia snuggled together between two portable toilets.
By revealing the unique couple’s whereabouts on the exclusive social network “Nextdoor,” the Good Samaritan made the decision to draw attention to them. Some animal enthusiasts responded by rushing to the soccer complex, where they discovered the mated duo frozen in place in the grass.
The 2-year-old Chihuahua named Gomez insisted on defending the little kitten at any costs.
As a result, it was trickier than expected to bring the two to safety.
“Completely bonded… We have called animal control and are waiting for them because the dog growls if we approach too closely, a Good Samaritan wrote on social media. “Three of us are currently keeping an eye on them.”
The two were eventually taken to a nearby shelter where they can wait for their owner to come forward. A picture of the two was posted on the Facebook page for Lost & Found Pets of Hampton Roads, Virginia, and Turkan Ertugrul, the director of Saver of Souls Pet Rescue, had to halt what she was doing because of the post.
They were so terrified in the photo that it made Ertugrul and him notice something. Because they just cannot comprehend when you are attempting to assist them, “we tend to favor the fearful ones.”
Ertugrul was unable to stop thinking about the linked animals, especially because she was aware that they would probably be separated at the shelter.
We were aware that the animals would be separated because it is against shelter policy to keep dogs and cats together for safety reasons, according to Ertugrul. We were up at night thinking about how they were faring because of their situation.
When they were freed, Etugrul made the decision to make room for the couple and locate them a place to live together. Fortunately for the adorable connected duo, the shelter staff didn’t want to separate the two either and set up playdates in a conference room where they were always glad to see each other.
It is obvious how closely the animals are connected now that they are living together happily in a foster home. You could feel Gomez’s dismay when he learned one of the black cats wasn’t Morticia when he initially ran up to the foster home’s black cats, Ertugrul added.
