Common sense holds that dogs and cats just don’t get along. But a viral video of a Beagle involving a protective paw around its best feline friend has led people to question the notion that different species should “fight like dogs and cats.
“Bo loves his cat siblings so much”, said Lisa Plummer, the owner who captured this adorable moment on film. The video has since garnered thousands of comments and shares on Facebook and Reddit.
In the video, Bo jumps up to be near Jasper, a 10-month-old cat perched on the couch and staring out the window. The friendly Beagle then wraps his furry best friend in a warm puppy hug. The impromptu display of affection leads the cat, Jasper, to start wagging his tail.
“They literally drive me crazy with their constant chaos”, Plummer wrote on Facebook. “This sweet moment melted my heart and made me want to take back all the bad things I’ve said about them”, she laughed.

Thousands of users fell in love with Jasper and Bo’s friendship on Facebook or Reddit, where the video quickly became viral. “That’s why I love animals!” a user wrote on the Plummer Facebook page. “So adorable! I’m so glad you got that!” someone else agreed. “I’ve watched it a dozen times today.”
Some people wished their dogs and cats would play so well together. Others were inspired to get a pet! “I can’t believe this is real,” wrote one user. “My dog loves his kitty sisters and they definitely hug, but he’s 10x the size.”
We are also inspired by Bo and Jasper’s unique friendship! Hopefully, the unique bond will inspire others to welcome rescued dogs and cats into their homes.
