Kitten Sneaks Out Of Crate To Comfort Sᴄᴀʀᴇᴅ Dog At The Vet

The cat, Ginger Biscuit, was found in a storm drain after a big rainstorm, completely soaked and in need of help. His rescuer brought him to Greenside Animal Hospital, and since they didn’t know anything about his health, they put him in the isolation ward, where he could heal and recover in peace.

Ginger was understandably a little nervous when he first arrived at the hospital. He was only 8 to 10 weeks old and very confused, so he was a bit wary of everyone walking by and caring for him.

Dr. Joubert Viljoen and Dr. Suzette Greube, owners of Greenside Animal Hospital, say that Ginger is shy but very affectionate. He overcame his initial ꜰᴇᴀʀ after several contacts with his caregivers.

Luckily for Ginger, he got the isolation ward all to himself — except for Anne.

The dog, Anne,  was also brought to the hospital as a stray after she was found hiding in a bush at a nearby sports club. She was medically examined and discovered she was covered with fleas and ticks. Not only that, but she was also quite sɪᴄᴋ that she had to be taken to the isolation ward.

Usually, the cats and dogs at Greenside Animal Hospital are kept in separate areas, but the isolation ward is a special case. Ginger’s cage and Anne’s cage happened to be facing each other. The staff all thought that they would not be able to contact each other but they were wrong. It seems Ginger had other plans.

One day, the staff entered the isolation ward and something happened that made their ʜᴇᴀʀᴛs stop. They don’t see Ginger in his cage. When they looked to the opposite side, they saw him cuddling Anne in her cage.

“We underestimated the kitten’s ability to wriggle itself through the door of the cage he was placed in,” Viljoen and Greube said. “With the little dog being so weak, we never considered her to be a risk to the kitten, but when we saw them together the first time around, there definitely was a moment of ᴘᴀɴɪᴄ, seeing as some dogs don’t react well to cats and vice versa.”

However, they felt more secure when they saw how gentle Anne was with Ginger and how much they seemed to love each other. After initially discovering them together, the staffs moved the kitten back into his cage, as his litter box, food and water was in there, but he immediately made his way out of the cage and back to his friend.

Now, Anne and Ginger are sharing a crate full time, and they couldn’t be happier about it. The pair may be very different, but it doesn’t matter. Their friendship is strong, and everyone agrees that it’s the sweetest thing ever.
