In 2014, Cynthia Bennett and her boyfriend attended an adoption event in the hope of bringing home a new dog. They initially wanted a golden retriever mix that was there, but once they laid eyes on Henry, it was love at first sight.
Bennett walked over to Henry to meet him, and he ran right up to her and plopped down in her lap. It was that moment that Bennett knew she would adopt him.
Life for the three of them was great. They moved to Colorado so they could spend their weekends going on hiking adventures. And of course Henry joined them! Henry loved going for walks with them and experiencing new places.
A few months ago, Bennett decided to expand her family of three to a family of four. She was thinking about rescuing a kitten, but she wanted one that wouldn’t mind joining in on their adventures.
Bennett visited a local shelter to try and find a kitten that would fit well into her family. That’s when she met Baloo, a Siamese kitten mix who ran right up to her at the shelter. Just like when she first met Henry, she knew that Baloo was the right kitten for her.
Then it was time for Henry and Baloo to meet. They bonded instantly and got along so well. They constantly wanted to play and even snuggle together. When Henry went out for a walk, Baloo wanted to go too.
So Bennett started taking Baloo out on their hikes and he loved it! Bennett believes that Baloo acts like more of a dog than he does a cat. Just like Henry, Baloo is very well-behaved and does great on their hikes. He is attached to Henry at the hip and never likes to leave his side. He even plops down on top of Henry’s head.
“With every adventure that these two share, they grow that much closer,” Bennett said in an Instagram post.
The two of them go out on every single hike together and Bennett couldn’t be happier at how well they get along. Henry is such a great big brother to Baloo and is always checking on him to make sure he’s ok.
