Large dogs usually have a bad reputation, but they are usually big dogs. The 5-year-old affectionate hound Ruby Jane proved that everyone can fall in love. This is because Ruby Jane has a soft spot for rescue cats.
Stephanie Vice is a veterinary technician in Lakeland, Florida. Vice and her husband Matthew (Matthew) often keep kittens at home. Ruby Jane has always loved all the rescue kittens she encountered. In fact, the video of her comforting rescue kitty has spread recently.
Ruby Jane has interacted with more than 100 different rescue kittens throughout her life. However, she recently established contact with Bodie, a tense five-week-old cat.
Vice brought Bodie home from the SPCA Florida no-kill shelter along with his two siblings. Since the kittens are so young, Vice will be fostering them until they are old enough to be put up for adoption.
Since the kittens that have grown up with Ruby Jane do not have a mother, the sweet Bloodhound does her best to care for them. Bodie is just one of the many kittens she has looked after over the years. She knows exactly how to be gentle with them.
In the video, Bodie is taking a bath, and he is shivering. Luckily, Ruby Jane is right beside him, comforting him throughout the whole process. At first, Ruby Jane is just looking over the sink at the tiny kitten. Then, she gently pets him with her large paw to help calm him down. After watching this video, there should be no doubt that cats and dogs can be great friends.
Throughout the video, Vice narrates what she thinks Ruby Jane is trying to say. She says things like “it’s okay, it’s just a bath” as the large dog pets the kitten. Surprisingly enough, Ruby Jane’s attempts seem to cheer Bodie up a bit.
After Vice released this video, it received 8,600,000 views in just a few days. You ca n’t watch this cute video without saying “aww!”
Although Ruby Jane lives with 107 different kittens in her life, she still likes Bodie very much. Even if they are two very different creatures, Ruby Jane and Bodie prove that true friendship is infinite. I hope Ruby Jane’s kindness will help encourage others to spread goodwill.
