This poor malamute does not know what to do with this… thing his human has brought into the home.  Now, his human wants him to “baby sit,” whatever that means, this noisy little thing.

Bak’s human found the kitten, now being called Maju, after being abandoned on the street.  Popular thinking says that dogs and cats, generally, do not get along.  However, for many of us animal lovers, (the writer of this story included) we know better.  Many of us have cats and dogs that are the best for friends.

At first Bak didn’t know what to make of things.  However, the humans of the house say they get along just fine now.  Bak has really stepped into his role as a guardian of this adorable kitten, and treats Maju with love and respect.

  1. “Popular thinking says that dogs and cats, generally, do not get along.”

    The animal kingdom has a special exception to infant animals. Adult animals tend to treat infant animals differently than other adult animals…almost as if they know that the infant animal is innocent and deserving the right to grow up to be an adult. Even predators know this. They almost *WANT* the young animal to grow up so that it can have offspring in order to supply the predator with future prey.

    Only man doesn’t have this capability. We kill indiscriminately.

  2. I have been raising cats and dogs together for years, and they get along just find. I have introduced adult cat to adult dogs and they have gotten along, It is all in the way the introduction is carried out. How ever this particular kitten is plainly in distress, it is looking for tits to nurse on and if this had been a female dog (recently with a litter of its own ) it would have allowed the kitten to nurse. But being that it is a male dog it is not possible and he knows that. You should have known that also and put the camera down and found some milk for the kitten and then let them play, the kitten would not have been in so much distress and your video would have been a lot better. Did you by any chance look around where you found the kitten to see if you could find the missing mother?
