Ohio native Marci Matthews has shared footage of her pet dog stepping in to help her cat in its fruitless chase for an onscreen fish on September 8.
While the virtual fish remained elusive on the Paint for Cats app, Matthews’ cat did at least find out it had a true friend in her Great Dane, Mabel, who tried to find the fish too.
The cat, who Matthews has given the full name of Commissioner Gordon Ramsay, is a year-old rescue she got as a kitten.
“I pulled out the iPad to let the cat play and my Great Dane jumped on the table to play too,” Matthews told Storyful.
Mabel is almost two according to Matthews, and in text accompanying the video on YouTube, she said the dog and cat are firm friends.
“Commissioner Gordon Ramsay loves his giant dog,” she wrote. “He sleeps and plays with her a lot and doesn’t seem to mind when steels EVERY cat toy or treat. Sometimes he won’t go to a different room, outside or even eat if she doesn’t join him.” Credit: Marci Matthews via Storyful
