A few years ago, a Belgian firefighter rescued a kitten and decided to adopt it. The man took the animal home, hoping that the whole family would welcome him, including the dogs. And so, it happened. In fact, the dogs not only accepted it, they also raised it as their own.
Now the cat Azmael is one of the packs. They continue to play together, are careful not to hurt each other, and go out for walks with the dogs.
The firefighter’s wife, Nathalie, posted a photo of the pets on the subreddit “Aww” . There you see the 3 animals sitting on the road, enjoying themselves. People loved them on the spot, and the photo already has 77,000 votes.
“In the photo are Nimue (Altdeutscher Schäferhund), Azmael (the cat) and Liam (White Swiss Shepherd),” says Nathalie.
Her husband found the kitten in a pool of blood in the middle of the road. “He was still alive, but seriously injured. He tried to find his family, but no one knew where he came from, so we took him to the vet and he stayed there for a few days. ” And against all odds, the kitten survived and was taken home.
“The first day we saw that he only had eyes for our sheepdog. And he did not know what to do with the kitten, until he decided that he was his friend and that he would take care of him (and the cat was trying to drink milk from the dog). They have a special relationship. Azmael decided that the dog was the best pillow, and then he also became friends with the other dog, Nimue. “
“5 pets are a lot of work. When we brought in the youngest cat, I was worried about raising her because we were so busy with each other, but Nimue was very helpful. She washed the kitten and played with her every day. I suppose it would have been very different if they didn’t get along. “
“Almost every morning, Azmael comes with us for a walk, it’s like having 3 dogs. But you have to be careful because he doesn’t pay attention to the cars and we have to pick him up if one comes. It is not afraid of other dogs and will even chase them if they try to disturb our dogs. “
“We are careful not to go too far from home if Azmael comes. If we want to go for a longer walk, we make sure it stays home. You have to feed him just before we leave or he will try to follow us. “
