We don’t give dogs enough credit for being emotionally intelligent animals who are able to form bonds and connections with others. In one adorable twist, there was a very sweet pooch who ended up becoming infatuated with the cat next door. The cat was indoors, yet the dog would in his window and stare out at the cat sitting alone in its window. It was like a quirky little long-distance love that seemed to span the better part of half a year.
However, the day came that the neighbors put up some plants in their window, thus obscuring the pooch’s view of his feline friend. The poor dog was crushed. He became dejected after not being able to see his buddy from his window anymore. The cat’s owners were completely unaware that their decorating choice had repercussions for their neighbor dog, so the pup’s owner decided to write them a little note explaining everything.
The very sweet note was posted to Reddit by Garret N, and it ended up going viral due to the wholesomeness of the content:
The entire thing read, “Dear Neighbor – this is going to seem ridiculous but I though you should know that my dog (who lives next door at – with me) is madly in love with your cat…and has been for probably 6 months! Three X a day, he puts his paws on our railing to look at him/her in your window sill. Now that you have potted plants there, he is heartbroken…but keeps looking for your cat every time. Maybe your plants could switch to a different window??! From your neighbor and her adoring dog!”
Imagine being that neighbor and getting that note taped to your window. Your heart would just break, wouldn’t it? The neighbor ended up being a kind-hearted person who was willing to move their plants to facilitate the dog’s love for their cat. They even included a sweet note to their window which read, “For true love,” in acknowledgement of this love story. How precious is that? Would you write a note like that for your dog? Would you be a kind neighbor and move your plants if you received a note like that? Let us know!
