Have you ever wondered what would be the perfect job for your pet companion? We’re not talking about a German Shepherd being the perfect cob, we’re thinking about their innate skills, like a Pit Bull being the perfect nanny or a cat being the perfect masseuse!

Don’t believe us? Check this fella out. Apparently, the kitty discovered that his dog buddy had a few knots in the back from all the running and squirrel chasing, so he decided he should step in and relieve him of the pain. “You shouldn’t stress so much about them rodents, bud. Now lay back and relax, I’ll fix these knots for yah…”

In the end, everyone can use some TLC every once in a while and this adorable kitty was more than happy to help her canine sibling out! After a long day of chasing squirrels and mailmen around the neighborhood, this adorable pup could really use a massage! What are friends for?

Also known as “kneading”, this behavior comes instinctually to felines, first demonstrated while suckling on their mother’s teet. However, there’s also a more practical aspect to kneading. Cats have scent glands in the soft pads on the bottoms of their paws. When they knead, some of their unique scent is released onto the surface being kneaded, and that scent serves as a kind of territorial marker for any unfamiliar cats that might come along and try to stake a claim.
