For as long as we can remember, we’ve been told that cats and dogs don’t get along, but in some situations, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Raylan, a dog, happens to love caring for kittens that have been rescued from cat shelters.
His Instagram profile reads, “Raylan is a purebred mutt who enjoys getting beer for loved ones, road trips, and cuddling with his foster kittens.”
Raylan had a rough start in life, before being adopted by his parents. His parents rescued him from a high-kill shelter where he was going to be euthanized because he was too hyper and untrained.
“Raylan’s a very smart dog who is eager to please and up for any adventure,” his parents told Bored Panda. The mutt’s love for cats was discovered after his family took in their first foster kitten, Watson, six years ago when Raylan was only three-years-old. Raylan wanted to play and care for the little kitten and Watson is now the dog’s neighbor, so they still get to spend a lot of time together.
Since Watson, Raylan has cared for over 60 kittens over his nine years of life. He cares for them after they’ve lost their mothers or been abandoned by their owners. His owner explained that he “cleans them constantly (which is very very helpful when they’re really young), as well as playing with them and carrying them around. He also stops them if they try to scratch the sofa.”
