Tiny Cat Has Been Best Friends With His Horse Since He Was A Kitten

Sappy the cat and Dakota, the chestnut horse, are adorable if not somewhat unlikely animal friends. 15-year-old Dakota could easily hurt the tiny cute kitten, but he prefers cuddling with him instead. These best friends are always together!

“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 have seen him crawl up his tail to get on his back!

“That cat is in his stall every day during feeding time, and after feed time, I always set on that container, and here the cute couple comes. If I go riding, that cat goes along as 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.”

Horses are highly intelligent as are cats. A more perfect bonding would be difficult to find. The horse has no reason whatsoever to do harm to the cat. Awesome pictures, thanks.

This is not the only horse-cat pair of best friends. Many videos on YT attest to this, all more fascinating than the next. The animals are complementary in that cats give horses intelligent company and physical contact while cats enjoy the warmth of the horse, its love bites, horse play and the possibility to see the world from a high vantage point.
