This video shows the amazing friendship that has developed between Benji (3 years old) the border collie and Fred (4 years old) the cat over the last 3 years.
Having had Fred arrive a year or so before we decided to get a puppy it took him a little time to get used to having this new bundle of energy that had arrived in the shape of a 12 week old Benji.
Once Fred settled and after a huge amount of hard work with Benji their relationship truly began to flourish producing amusing and cute moments on a daily basis.
They now eat together, play together and sleep together and are best friends.
