Golden Retriever with their cat


Cat gets brotherly love

These Golden Retrievers didn’t want their cat left out of the family photo.

As their owner is ready to take a photo of the three Goldens, one runs into the house, grabs the cat and brings it next to the other two Goldens. The owner then tells the dog: “Put it down.” He does.

Before taking the photo, the person filming the clip tells the cat: “Xiaobao, look at the camera.”

The Golden in the middle then helpfully puts its paw on the cat so all the animals looking at their owner – just like in a traditional family portrait.

The video went viral, with more than two million views and 12,000 comments. One comment: “That one sibling that hates family photos.” For his part, the cat looks like he is pretty used to this treatment by his siblings.
