Cat Goes Viral When She Flips Stereotypes and Comforts Scared Dog During Thunderstorm

Exclusive to Happily

A caring cat flipped stereotypes on their head by comforting a scared dog during a thunderstorm.


11-year-old April, a chow-golden retriever mix, has never enjoyed the sound of storms as they rumble in the skies above her Houston, Texas, home.

April can often be found curled up and scared, owner Luis said – but fortunately for the pooch, Luis’ cat, Nala, a six-year-old tabby, is often there to offer a comforting paw.

On March 15, as a thunderstorm raged outside, Luis came across April curled up in a ball, with Nala sitting close by, licking the canine’s head to soothe her.

According to Luis, Nala had comforted April this way through many thunderstorms, but this was the first time he could capture such a loving interaction on video.

Luis later shared the video on TikTok, which received hundreds of thousands of views and likes.

Luis said: “Nala is the only cat that April likes, and April is the only dog that Nala likes.

“Nala always knows when April doesn’t feel great.

“They have done this before, but this was the first time I could record them doing it, so I took my chance and recorded.

“I felt like a good pet parent at that moment because they get along so well.

“The response has not at all been what I expected.

“I was just sharing a sweet moment for me. I did not expect it to go viral.”
