While we have seen dogs who are best friends with a cat, we’ve never seen a cat act as a dog’s protector. We’re talking about a 5-year-old feline named Richie, whose family consists of seven adorable Chihuahuas. Despite being from a different species, Richie loves to hang out with his canine siblings. He’s especially fond of Kuma, a puppy who he cuddles with and protects with all the love in the world.
When they’re all together, the mixed Yuta family loves to play outside, sport matching outfits, and pose for sweet snapshots as they flaunt their furry friendship. To see what these seven pups and their cat leader get up to next, you can follow their uplifting feed on Instagram.
Just your average day in the Yuta household.
