While cats and dogs are largely considered natural enemies, some pooches are willing to forgo biological instinct for the chance to make a new bestie.

When Natalie Martin’s family brought home a stray kitten, their dog was all open arms and playful paws with the new fam feline. Instead of growling or getting territorial, the canine comrade just jumps around in excitement with the cat—and the new guy even plays along. 

If only all siblings could have such chemistry.
