It is not unusual for felines to become bonded with one another. At the human’s venture, The Cat Cafe, a bonded pair of felines was recently adopted. In order to test for whether a pair is bonded, they will be separated for a day or two. Bonded pairs, when they are separated, do not consume noms and get very unhappy.
When a pair of felines is bonded, they need to be adopted together. That is not all too unusual but what happens when a feline and canine form a bonded pair? This, my furiends, is what happened with Chip and Adele.
These two met at Operation Kindness, in Dallas, Texas. Chip, who is the canine, was surrendered when he was just five weeks old because his humans could not properly care for a puppy so young. Adele was even luckier to find her way to Operation Kindness. She was found wandering alone without her mother at four weeks.
Because these two were so young, the rescue group decided to pair them together. It did not take very long for these two to become a tightly bonded pair.
Adele is much more active than Chip is, and she loves to climb and run around. But she does not spend very much time away from her canine furiend. Chip is a laid back canine, and he allows Adele to climb all over him.
They do just about everything together, although I hope that Adele does not start to pick up the canine habit of going for walks. I also hope that Chip does not attempt to use the litter box because he will make a mess, my furiends!
When these two are old enough, they will be adopted together, as all bonded pairs should be. I am happy to share the story of this very unusual bonded pair and hope it put a smile on your face!
