Some people say dogs and cats can’t be friends but this adorable video proves otherwise. Anya the German Shepherd and Munchie the cat formed an instant bond and now, every morning, Anya brings Munchie her toy to entice her to play.
Munchie was found living in a dumpster by Lori Knoble, who rescued her and took her to her home in Ohio.
Lori said: “When we first brought Munchie the rescue kitten home, she was really scared and just stayed on the basement stairs.
“One day our dog Anya just picked up her toy and started playing with Munchie trying to get her to chase it. Since then, they play every day.

“Anya is the one who truly helped Munchie not be afraid and helped her to adjust to her new life of living with us. She usually plays with her every morning, or whenever we leave the toy out lying around.
“Munchie has grown from a tiny, scared kitten living in a dumpster all alone, to becoming a member of our family who is loved and cherished.
“It melts our hearts that Anya instinctively knew how to help Munchie to not be afraid. You can't help but smile when you see them playing together. They play lovingly and they love to tease each other, too! Not all angels have wings – some have four paws and fur.”
