Dog Raised With Cats Purrs When He’s Getting Petted

They say you are who you spend your time with, and one adorable pittie named Winston has embodied that to the fullest.

The sweet dog grew up with cats – lots of cats. He didn’t spend as much time around other dogs, so he started to pick up on some cat-like tendencies.

Winston’s owner, Beth Dooley Clark, shared a TikTok video of Winston, highlighting one of his cat behaviors: purring!

She wrote in the video, “Winston was raised with cats…so now he purrs when you pet him.

Throughout the video, Winston can be heard making a loud “purring” sound. He’s clearly loving every moment and appears completely relaxed!

One person commented, “please tell me he comes when you ps ps ps jajaja.” While the comment was likely made as a joke, it turns out that he does, indeed, come when called like a cat!

In a follow-up video, Beth filmed herself making the “ps ps ps” call that’s usually used for cats. Winston immediately looks at her, and then leaps off the furniture to come!

It’s definitely something a cat would do. Watch the video below:
