Witnessing your felines and canines getting along with each other is the best moment ever for anyone who owns more than 1 pet. This wholesome family used to have 4 pets in the pack but now they rescued another little fluff ball with the help of their 2 pooches Nimue and Liam. The owner was hoping they would be well bonded but her wish was granted: Azmael the cat and the doggo siblings usually love to have playtime together, the canine siblings are careful enough not to hurt the kitty, they even go for a walk!

“The pets in the picture are Nimue (Altdeutscher Schäferhund), Azmael (the cat), and Liam (White Swiss Shepherd)” – Nathalie shared a pawfect picture on the “Aww” subreddit, quickly garnered 77K upvotes within 1 day!
Azmael was rescued by a firefighter in the middle of the road with horrible injuries. Nathalie, the firefighter’s wife, recalled the first time rescuing the baby kitten.
“It was still alive, but seriously injured.” – she said.
“He tried to find his family but no one knew where the kitten had come from, so we took him to the vet where he stayed for a few days.”
The vet predicted he was not able to be alive but somehow the brave kitty Azmael made it and the family could bring him home.
“On the very first day the kitten was at our place, we noticed that he had eyes only for our Swiss Shepherd. At first, the dog wasn’t sure what he was supposed to do with the little creature (Is it food? A new toy?), but after a few hours, he decided that the kitty was a new friend. He took care of the critter (who, in turn, tried to nurse on the dog). They have a very special relationship. The kitten decided that our Shepherd was the best pillow in the world. Later, he also became best friends with our other dog, Nimue.”
Now the gang of three seems quite fit, just in a different form, the pets’ owner shared how they get along with each other.
“Nearly every morning, Azmael joins us on our walk. It’s like we have three dogs. But we have to be careful because Azmael still doesn’t pay attention to cars on the road, so we have to quickly grab him and carry him if we see a car coming. He is not afraid of other dogs and even chases them away when they annoy our dogs.”
And the surroundings of Nathalie’s house are an ideal place for pets to enjoy nature as well where has meadows and forests.
“We are really careful not to walk too far from home when Azmael is with them.” – Nathalie explained.
“When we want to go on a longer walk, we have to make sure that thee cat stays at home (usually the only way to ensure that is to feed him right before leaving the house, otherwise he’ll try to follow us).” – The firefighter’s wife took really good care for the majestic ginger kitty Azmael.
Owning 5 pets is not an easy task, you have to be fivefold stronger and make sure everyone is safe and full of joy. With the helpful Nimue the pooch, Nathalie is relieved a bit.
“5 pets is a lot of work. When we got our youngest cat, I was a little scared that it would be difficult to raise her because we were already quite busy with the others, but my Altdeutscher Schäferhund was a fantastic help.” – Nathalie explained.
“She cleaned the kitten and gently played with her every day. I suppose it would have been an entirely different story if our pets didn’t all get along.”
People absolutely love the adorable gang
