While my boyfriend and I are at work during the day, I get alerts on my phone when there's movement on our pet camera. When I tune in, I normally find one of two things: one of my cats slinking by the camera on her way to or from the litter box, or the pair of them tumbling around, wrestling to the death (it's usually the latter). When Brenna Eckert, who has two dogs and two cats, tunes into her home's pet camera during the day, she finds a very different thing: her cat Kelvin and dog Joule snuggling on the couch together for the entire eight hours their humans are gone.
The pet mom posted a video of the cat and dog duo to Reddit after realizing that this is how her furry friends spend their days, and the amount of people now obsessed and in love with her pets is overwhelming. Brenna also shares videos on her pets' Instagram account, where you can really dive into Kelvin and Joule's deep bond.
However, their love for each other is really only apparent in the daytime, so without the pet camera, Brenna may have never found out about their close relationship. "Joule had a lot of anxiety when we first adopted her," Brenna told The Dodo. "We worked one-on-one with a dog behaviorist to help work through some of her issues. She is certainly a Velcro dog. When we are home she always needs to be close to us."
But when the humans aren't home, Kelvin is who Joule leans on for support.
"We noticed that Kelvin and Joule were laying on the couch together almost every day," Brenna said. "I moved the camera to get a closer view of the couch and was amazed to see that they weren't just sharing the couch, but they were snuggling up against each other . . . They only snuggle with each other like this when we are not around. If we are home, Joule wants to be with us, so she basically ignores the cat."
