One American Shorthair cat recently infiltrated a gang of three Shiba Inus, and the dogs don't even realize there's a spy among them!

One Japanese couple have had Shibas for years, but the wife also wanted a cat. "The reason why I wanted to expand our family with a cat rather than a dog was quite simple: I've had a cat in the past," the woman told Bored Panda. "But when I told my husband that I wanted a kitty, I learned he wasn't very fond of cats. I kept at it, but he refused every time. After some time, however, I was able to find a cat we both liked."

The couple started looking for a gray kitty with short fur and standing ears. "I also looked for a breed that was really compatible with dogs. Eventually, we settled on the American Shorthair."

The couple picked a breeder in Kanagawa and soon brought home a new addition to their pack, Kiki. Right from the start, the kitty fit right in. Now, he's become so close to his Shiba siblings, he's even started to act like them!

I'm shocked and pleased that, as of my writing this, nobody has gone on the attack due to the word "breeder." I certainly believe and agree that rescues should be the first choice, but it's obnoxious and wearying to keep attacking the people mentioned in these stories here who may or may not even be reading these comments.

Shiba Inus have been described as being "catlike", so it's not so surprising that a cat would get along with them.

Kiki's owner got to see just how close he got to the Shibas back in February. "I took Kiki and our dogs to a Shiba Inu party," their mom said. "Kiki was getting along with all the dogs just fine, but one of them suddenly started barking at him. Immediately, one of our Shibas, Saki, barked back, protecting Kiki. At that point, I understood they've become true companions."

Now, Kiki and the Shibas are doing everything together. From napping to exploring the outdoors, they're always by each other's side. "The Shibas are usually quiet at home, so Kiki seems to be able to rest whenever he wants with a peaceful mind," the cat's owner added. "Sometimes Kiki does something athletic before going to bed at night and joins us in the bedroom to get some sleep."

The cat is all, “LOOK AT WHAT I HAVE TO PUT UP WITH!” 🤣

"I often hear that it's the dogs who get used to their owner's sleeping schedule, and cats are the jerks who get up early and wake you up at 4 AM or something like that, but Kiki also sleeps together with the rest of us until morning." Seems like happy families grow alike despite what species their members are.
