The video below reminds me of my Golden Alfie and kitty Cindy. Cindy does not often show much affection, but occasionally will begin rubbing against Alfie, headbutting him, or licking his face, head, and paws. He gets so nervous, afraid to look at her or even move. Since, most of the time she is swatting at him, he cannot understand what comes over her change in disposition.
There is actually a 3-video series of Golden Retriever Tulsa and Tabby Tiger attempting to become friends. This is part 3 of the ongoing “saga” of tiger, a buff colored tabby trying desperately to engage Golden Tulsa. Tulsa is an incredibly patient and good boy, but seems to just tolerate Tiger, looking like he’d rather run away!
