It must be video week for us here at Puppy In Training. I came across another great video I want to share with you guys. It’s actually very old footage from the late 60’s early 70’s, but I guess it’s been circulating around Youtube for a while now, so many of you may have already seen it.
The video brought up a question in my mind: Is the bond between a cat and a human stronger than the bond between a dog and a human?
In my eyes I always thought that dogs and humans formed a stronger bond, but after watching this video you’ll see that cats can form very strong relationships with humans as well.
Here’s the video:
Chrisitian The Lion
My favorite part is when they are in Africa and Christian is coming down the hill. At first he seems very hesitant, but then realizes that it’s his old caretakers/owners…I think I have some dust in one of my eyes…
Strong Bonds With Both Cats And Dogs
I don’t think all cats are as affectionate nor form a bond like Christian the lion did. However, the same can be said for dogs and not all dogs will form a strong bond with their human owners. I just thought this video was a shining example of the kind of relationship a cat (in this case a lion) can have with its human caretakers/owners/parents.
Now, I understand why my mom is so crazy with her cats!
What do you think? Does a dog form a stronger bond with it’s human owners or does a cat?
