Watch This Paternal Cat Comfort A Goat While She’s In Labor


We’ve seen dozens of stories of criss-species friendships (and we love them all), but this unique relationship is certainly a first! When a pregnant goat went into labor, Pretty Boy, a fluffy ginger cat, took it upon himself to become her stand-in birthing coach!

From snuggling beside her to massaging her belly while she had contractions, Pretty Boy made the strenuous process a little easier for his goat friend.

Watch the amazing video below:

Those sweet little baby goats are just so adorable!

Although independent and sometimes stubborn, cats are also known for being incredible nurturers. We bet this paternal kitty would make a great therapy cat in a maternity ward!
