Kitten That Wouldn’t Stop Bothering A Fearsome Pit Bull Gets A Huge Surprise In Return

You can find a pit bull lover in just about every neighborhood, and to some folks, that can be a bit unsettling. Many believe these dogs are naturally vicious, dangerous, and incapable of showing the same kind of gentle affection that other pups can.

That’s why one recent incident between a pit bull and a teeny little kitten had all the makings of a disaster. The huge pit bull was minding her own business when a curious kitten tried to get in her way. That was when the dog did something that would make any cat lover jump!

When it comes to dogs, pit bulls in particular get a really bad rap. For one, they’re often used in dog-fighting rings, so people automatically associate these breeds with being overly aggressive.

Others will point out that the sheer jaw strength of a pit bull alone makes them dangerous, citing the belief that their jaws “lock” when they bite. Even mild-mannered dogs can become angry and uncharacteristically bite someone, so imagine if a pit bull did that? Uh-oh!

So that was why people panicked recently when they watched this tiny kitten—who’d just been adopted—try to walk right up to the dog of the house: a big pit bull. The little kitty even dared to swat at the big dog’s giant paws!

For those who’ve heard horror stories about pit bulls, this was no doubt a terrifying sight to behold! Still, the kitten didn’t seem to realize the trouble she was causing. At one point, the two animals locked eyes and stared at each other, and the kitten froze in place. What would happen?

“Hey, what’s going on under here?” This kitten just couldn’t help herself when it came to trying to understand every little aspect of the massive dog who was several times her size. As tensions arose, would curiosity kill this cat, so to speak?

The kitten sniffed and swatted and inspected every angle of the giant animal lounging in her new home. The pit bull? She narrowed her eyes in a look that seemed to say, “Man, I’m sick and tired of this pipsqueak getting in my business!”

Meanwhile, the kitten swiped at the dog even more ferociously. While she thought she was playing a simple game of “got your paw,” the pit bull was becoming antsy, and she started whipping her tail and licking her lips. Uh-oh. Was she getting ready to bite?

It hadn’t even been a full minute before the pit bull had enough of the kitten’s shenanigans. Disturbed, she moved towards the fluffy kitten, sending her reeling backwards. This kitty was in big trouble!

The kitten rolled on to her back, exposing her soft belly to the pit bull. If the dog was going to take a bite out of her like a deli sandwich, this would have been the perfect moment. Instead? She nuzzled her new furry friend even more.

Phew! That was a close call, huh? It became clear just how much compassion each animal had for the other. The kitten was merely playing, and the dog was as gentle as ever. But that moment begged an important question…

Were all pit bulls like this, especially with cats? Or was this one an exceptional case since the cat in question was a baby? To find the answer, you’d have to look at another pit bull-kitty pair. How would this pit bull react to a bigger cat?

The two fought for a little while, and the cat put the pit bull’s self restraint and jaw power to the test. It was as if the cat was teasing the pit bull by saying, “Go ahead, bite me! I dare you!” If he wasn’t careful, he’d turn into this dog’s lunch!

When the pit bull didn’t bite, the cat brought his judo skills up a notch. With a firm grip on the dog’s jaws, he meowed and nipped, nearly sticking his fragile head into the beast’s awaiting maw. Still, the pit bull kept calm…

Of course, it was all just fun and games! After a rousing play session, the cat stood tall, flicking his tail and celebrating his victory. The pit bull, meanwhile, enjoyed all the attention. Between them, there was only love and affection!

While any breed of dog can have aggressive tendencies if they’ve been abused or improperly trained, the truth is that there’s nothing about pit bulls that makes them naturally more aggressive than any other dog…

In fact, pit bulls were bred to act as “nanny” dogs for children specifically because of their sweet demeanors! While these interactions with cute kittens may not be the end-all-be-all proof of a pit bull’s natural tendencies, they do go a long way in showing that these dogs have big hearts.

Don’t believe it? Just check out the way that first pit bull interacts with her teeny-tiny feline friend. Watching a dog known for her power and strength be so gentle with a little kitten is heartwarming!

Could there be a more misunderstood animal than the pit bull? They can be such sweethearts, and they deserve tons of affection, too!
