Once they touched nose-to-nose, in was an instant connection. The relationship was so adorable that the family shared the story and numerous photos on all social media for the world to see. Loki and Okami proved to have a bond like no other.

Okami stayed by his new little brother’s side during naps just to ensure he was there when the kitten awoke. He continually licked and kissed Loki as if to keep him clean.

These two species of animal are prime examples of the #Power of friendship. Cats and dogs can be the best of pals as these loving pets prove to their family and the world.
