Big pup spooked by extremely tiny kitten while trying to make friends

Samantha Scelzo

Contrary to popular belief, cats and dogs can actually be great friends. They don't really have much in common, but hey, opposites attract.

That being said, the tricky relationship between this large doggo and this tiny kitten needs some time to develop. Boundaries need to be set, rules need to be followed, and hierarchy needs to be established.

Instagram user tipthevelvet posted this video of her new tiny kitten, Oliver, getting acquainted with her Great Dane, Ronan. Oliver quickly shows his new friend who's boss by giving Ronan an itty-bitty boop on the nose. And by the look on Ronan's face, he understands who's in charge here.

Ronan is SHOOK by Oliver's feisty swat, and tries to make himself invisible behind the blinds. He gives the scrappy kitten some serious nervous side-eye before walking away, realizing that they have some progress to make before they become BFFs.

We're confident that Oliver and Ronan will warm up to each other soon, though. We bet they'll be cuddling — with no swatting — in no time.
