Who says cats and dogs don’t get along? When this pit bull was injured, his loving cat sister did everything in her power to help her big dog brother feel better.
“A pitty and his best friend,” wrote Reddit user @brooklynadm above the adorable video, which posted on a subreddit called AnimalsBeingBros and quickly went viral. “Dog’s ear was bitten by another dog recently and cat has been rubbing it ever since. She’s a real bro.”
