This Dog Carries His Cat Brother on HIs Back When the Family Goes Hiking

These guys are genuinely friends.

When Andre Sibilsky and Cynthia Bennett moved to Colorado from Massachusetts, they developed a strong love for the outdoors, which is something that most people in Colorado deeply enjoy. Over a period of time, they also decided that they wanted to bring some furry family members on board their small family. They looked forward to having their new pet or pets join them on their outdoor adventures. First, they took in a puppy who they named Henry, and he immediately brought tons of joy and love to their lives. There was only one problem with having Henry. He wasn't a dog who did well at home alone when they were working. There was only one thing to do.

Because Henry suffered from separation anxiety, the couple decided that Henry needed an adopted sibling, so they brought Baloo the cat on board to join the family. Now, Henry and Baloo are completely inseparable. Cynthia said that the cat and dog brothers immediately warmed to each other and she says Baloo actually acts like a dog. “If he sees a dog out on a walk, he’ll run up to it, but if he sees a cat he will pretend it isn’t there and ignore it,” she told BBC . “Like, do you not understand what you are? It’s quite funny.”

However, since Baloo isn't actually a pooch, he gets tired on the family's frequent outings and hikes, so what happens then is that Henry gives his brother a ride on his back and it's just the cutest thing ever. Baloo just jumps up on Henry's back and rides the rest of the hike out. Because these two are so adorable, people all over the world have fallen in love with them and they're a huge hit on popular social media platforms like Instagram. Cynthia and Andre share lots of fun-loving videos of these two fur brothers.

It's like these two were meant to be together. Because of Baloo, Henry isn't alone all the time, and now Baloo gets to see horizons that normally would be missed by a cat who lives indoors. It's definitely a win for all involved.
