There’s really nothing sweeter than two totally different creatures falling into one unlikely friendship. In this video, we meet a giant dog who seems more suited for canines his own size rather than a tiny baby kitten, but as they say, opposites attract. When Dad posted this online, Navarro was about 80 pounds and Iben was just over one pound, so he was a little worried about them learning to play together. However, he quickly discovered that a hilarious and adorable friendship was in the making, and how gentle his giant of a dog could really be.
After seeing how kind and gentle Navarro plays with Iben, despite the fact Iben loves nothing more than to bat at his friend’s fluffy tail and egg him on like little brothers tend to do, it’s clear these two have many memories ahead of them. This first encounter between Iben and his new big brother put a huge smile on my face, as it quickly becomes an epic battle between kitten vs. wagging tail. Navarro seems to view his new companion as not only a source of entertainment, but a source he needs to protect as well. Who do you think wins?
I think the winner is clear, but I’ll let you be the judge. This is one patient big brother.
Let us know what you think of this video in the comments. We’d love to hear from you! Please share Navarro and Iben’s special bond on your Facebook page so others can see just how close unlikely friends can become.
