Kobi the Boxer and Stitch the French Bulldog live in Miami, Florida with their paw-rents.

They’re well-behaved pooches, to be sure, but their owners were still anxious when they first started fostering a litter of kittens. How would the pups react?

Big brothers

But it turns out this family had nothing to worry about. Both dogs were friendly and gentle with the kittens, but Kobi especially so. He often plays with the kittens, but he’s never rough and tumble with them – which is quite a feat for a healthy adult Boxer!

Kobi’s so good with the kittens that his mum trusts him completely and knows that she can turn her back for a few minutes with complete knowledge that her kittens will be safe in Kobi’s paws.

And best friends forever

Kobi’s mum regularly posts about her pets’ adorable friendships on their TikTok account. So far, they have over 4k followers. And we think that number’s just going to keep growing – I mean look at how they fall asleep together! 

Too cute not to follow.
