Talk about a welcome party!
1-year-old rat terrier Kip hopes to show his new sister, a tabby kitten named Lizzie, just how happy he is to have a new playmate. But his approach is just a little too intense for the newest member of the family.
The pup shows off his moves by racing around in circles on the couch and jumping back and forth – but being careful not to hurt the tiny kitten. As for Lizzie? While at first she seems curious about her new older brother (that his owners refer to as “Dorky”), she very quickly retreats to higher ground on the couch and gives a look that seems to say, “What is the deal with this nut case?”
Eventually, Kip’s excitement gets the best of him and he falls off the couch. All good playdates must come to an end!
