Cats and dogs have always had the reputation of not getting along, but Raylan an adorable mutt, has proven that that doesn’t always have to be the case—Raylan loves taking care of tiny kittens.
He parents a lot of foster cats, loving them and caring for them until they find their forever homes. The kittens have either lost their moms or were abandoned by their owners.
Raylan had a rough start in life as well; he was adopted from a high-kill shelter where he was going to be euthanized and no one wanted him because he was too hyper and untrained.
Raylan’s owners told Bored Panda that “Raylan’s a very smart dog who is eager to please and up for any adventure.” They discovered his love for cats after they brought home their first foster kitten, Watson, six years ago when Raylan was only three-years-old. When they brought home Watson, the dog just wanted to play and care for the little kitten and luckily for Raylan, Watson is now his neighbor and they see each other often.
Raylan has cared for over 60 kittens during his nine years. 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.”
Raylan’s Instagram profile appropriately reads, “Raylan is a purebred mutt who enjoys getting beer for loved ones, road trips, and cuddling with his foster kittens.”
