Keep reading, and we’ll have you believing in animal love in no time.
What's He Staring At?
It began when a user of Reddit, Garret_N, began noticing some strange behavior in his dog. Every single day, his dog would stare out of the window. It wasn’t the usual watch traffic kind of stare, he was staring at something very specific. Garret had no idea what could possibly be keeping his dog’s attention for such a long time. Finally, one day, Garret realized what was going on. Garret smiled when he found out what his dog was staring and what he did for him is sure to make you smile, too!
The Feline That Caught His Eye
He had been watching his dog for quite a few days when Garret realized that his dog was staring at his neighbor’s cat! Garret couldn’t believe what his dog was doing. A ton of questions began forming in Garret’s mind. One of them being why his dog was so intrigued by this cat. He assumed that his dog had a bit of a crush on the cat, and he was right! He decided to write a note to his neighbor, but what could he write without sounding crazy? You won’t believe how silly it sounds!
Garret was wondering if his dog was getting the love he was giving in return, but when he looked out of the window, he realized the cat was staring right back at his dog! Garret continued to watch the two animals for days, he smiled when he realized they would stare at each other for hours at a time. Was the connection he seeing real, or was his imagination getting the best of him? He had to find out, so Garret did something that most wouldn’t do, but it sure was pretty special.
Living In Harmony
Life With Dogs
It might seem crazy that a cat and dog could fall in love, but is it really? It might be, but there seems to be some evidence proving it. There is an incredible amount of evidence of cats and dogs sharing an extremely unique bond, and there’s picture proof of it. Regardless of popular opinion, cats and dogs can actually be affectionate towards one another. Now, let’s get back to the story of these two lovebirds, and the unbelievable lengths Garret went through for their love!
It became a regular occurrence for Garret to walk downstairs to find his dog staring out the window at his neighbor’s cat. He became so used to it, that one day he realized something was a bit off. His dog wasn’t at the window, instead, he was laying on the floor looking a bit sad. This was weird because his dog was usually in great spirits, but he looked sad for days. Garret finally realized what had changed. His neighbor had put some potted plants in the window, and his dog couldn’t see his friend anymore. What could he do to help his dog get out of his depression? What Garret did was incredible!
Consumed by Sadness
Garret tried doing many things to break the sadness. He played with him, took him for as many walks as he could, and even bought him new toys, but nothing seemed to work. His dog continued to be sad, just like a human would after a breakup, and nothing Garret did would help. He continued to be sad and wouldn’t respond to Garret at all. Garret decided drastic measures needed to be take for the sake of his pup’s broken heart. Even if it was crazy, Garret knew he had to do something to help.
He Had To Try Something
For a lot of people, the love story would end right there, but Garret wasn’t like most people. As a self-proclaimed animal-lover, Garret saw how happy the cat made him, so he knew he had to try anything to make his dog happy again. It might seem like he went too far, but what Garret did for his best friend, and the love he had for the cat, is sure to bring a huge smile to your face!
Garret had hoped that his neighbor loved his cat the way he loved his dog, but he figured no one could stand in the way of true love, and took a chance. He decided to write a note to his neighbor describing the events he witnessed over the past few weeks. He asked the neighbor to remove the plants so his dog wouldn’t be sad anymore, and taped the note to his neighbor’s window. He wasn’t sure how the neighbor would respond, but he sure didn’t expect the response he got.
The Wait Was Agonizing
Garret had no idea what to expect from his neighbor, he only hoped that his neighbor didn’t think he was certifiably crazy. Even though he loved his dog, Garret had to live next to his neighbor for quite a long time and didn’t want to be known as “that weird guy with the dog”! The neighbor didn’t wait long at all to reply. Garret received a letter the next day, and couldn’t believe the way his neighbor reacted!
Love Conquers All
Fortunately, his neighbor turned out to love animals as much as Garret did! His neighbor was quick to respond with a note. They were more than happy to remove the plants, and did so immediately. His neighbor agreed that love was more important than household plants. They would soon find out if the love the animals shared was real, or just a fluke. Would they continue staring at each other through the window now that the plants were gone?
Back To Love
The animal owners were happy to find that their furry friends went right back to their daily routine, and Garret was pleased to find his dog’s good spirits had returned. Now that both owners knew of their pets' long-distance relationship, they looked forward to seeing them at the windows every day. As it turns out, love makes a huge difference in everyone’s life, regardless if that someone happens to be an animal.
It's Movie Time
It would be amazing to say that the owners fell madly in love while connecting over the love their pets shared, and it sure would make an even better story, but this isn’t the type of story Tom Hanks would star in on the big screen. Now that I think of it, why isn’t the pets story being turned into a big movie? I’m sure lots of people would love to see this incredible story of love get turned into a movie. I mean, who doesn’t love animals? And who doesn’t love love?
Did This Change Your Mind?
Were you one of those people that didn’t think animals could fall in love? If you have a furry friend, I’m sure that this story made you think twice about that. Even if your friends don’t believe you, make sure that you share this story with the animal lovers in your life. In the state that the world is in right now, we could all use a little more love in our lives, especially a love that doesn’t have to look a certain way!
