Mother Cat Brings Her Kittens To Meet An Unlikely Old Friend

Sometimes, the best cat aunt is actually a dog.

It's one of life's most beautiful truths: Joy that's shared is never diminished, but rather felt more wholly. And what could be more joyful than a lively litter of fluffy kittens?

A video recently uploaded to YouTube captures the touching moment a cat led her babies along to introduce them to her old friend, who happens to be a dog. The feline mother shows no hesitation in allowing the eager pup to get acquainted with her offspring - which she does with tenderness and the utmost care.

The kittens, too, seem to relish in their canine aunt, who's probably a bit more tolerant of their playful pawing than mom.

There are few details with which to illuminate the backstory of these unlikely friends, but this little snapshot is such a happy one it hardly needs explanation.
