“I got the cat as a kitten last May,” Denice Kinney, their owner, told Bored Panda. “As the little fella started to grow I noticed he would be laying next to the horse as he grazed, if the horse laid down, he would lay on him, I even seen him crawl up his tail to get on his back!

“That cat is in his stall everyday during feeding time and after feed time, I always set on that container and here they both come. If I go riding that cat goes along like a dog would!

“Anyone who knows horses realizes that horse…could kill that cat with one step or one bite but he is gentle with that cat and always has been.”
