Kacy’s dog usually stares outside the window three times a day. His firm gaze can burn a hole in the neighbor’s living room. At first, Kacy, a devoted pet owner, thought that her dog might want to go for a walk, but every effort to pull this leering dog away was unsuccessful.

Unyielding Gaze

Kacy understood what she should look like, but she had no idea if she could help her pet. But, after a year, her dog died like that. After a year of being stalked, her neighbor finally opted to take a stance.

The Only Reason

As it turns out, animals are not quite different from people who want to do something completely crazy like staring out the window every day for a year. The reason behind this is because of love. You may think that animals can’t fall in love, you are not alone. Most people don’t think animals fall in love as we do. If you have not been persuaded by the Lady and the Tramp and all her nice scenes, you’ll surely believe after reading this.

Staring At Something Specific

Kacy, or “kacyyy” on Reddit, witnessed the strange behavior of her dog looking out of the window every day. However, it was not his usual kind-of-stare watch-traffic and she found that her dog stared at something very special. It all started at that point. Kacy had many thoughts in mind and one of them was what held her dog’s focus for a really long time. It was impossible for her to know because she wasn’t really home and couldn’t see what fascinated her dog.

Figuring It Out

Kacy was mostly running errands and occupied with jobs. She decided to stay home on her day off and find out what her dog was quibbling about. At first, she figured it was a squirrel, or perhaps a family of squirrels. But there were no squirrels present. Kacy wanted the puzzle to eventually be solved.

The Neighbor’s Cat

As Kacy watched TV, she noticed when her dog looked at her neighbor’s window, the neighbor’s cat stood in the clear view of the window and seemed to look back on her pet. Kacy stared at her dog calmly wondering if it could be what he had looked forward to all the time. Two hours had passed, but her dog kept staring. Kacy began to look at the neighbor’s window and saw that the cat was wrapped in the sleeping bag. This became odd as she realized that her dog didn’t like cats.

Not Completely Different

Some people believe that dogs and cats are from entirely different backgrounds, but the animals are not as distinct as what people believe. They even have some things in common. Despite what most people say, dogs and cats can get along well since some of their behaviors are alike. However, it is not true that dogs and cats can’t be friends. If you find that unbelievable, then you haven’t seen anything yet.

Imagination Or Reality

Kacy wondered if the cat was also showing attention to her dog. So, she kept on watching them. She remembered that the cat stood up and looked back at his dog. Then she observed them for days and discovered that the two looked at each other for several hours. She began to wonder if it was just her imagination or the bond she saw was real. Kacy had to figure out, so she did something that most people wouldn’t.

Unusual Behavior

Kacy was so used to seeing her dog looking at the neighbor’s cat outside the window that one day she knew there was something off downstairs. The dog is not at the window, rather, she sees him laying on the floor. So Kacy decided to wait and see if her dog will have unusual behavior that may escalate that will make her dog lost it entirely.

A Visit To The Vet

Kacy knew that her dog had to see the doctor. As she got to their appointment, she told the vet that the dog has been staring at the cat for weeks. The vet just laughed and asked the usual questions about the dog’s food, sleep shifts, and behavior. Nothing seemed off and the dog was in great shape with his shots right up to date. But, Kacy discovered that her dog was behaving out in ways which she had not seen before, that she kept looking extremely depressed, and only sitting down on the floor while being generally high-spirited. Nothing seemed off with her dog … until they returned home.

The Change

When they got home from visiting the doctor, the dog ran to the floor without even bothering to look outside the window. Kacy took a look and realized something had changed – there was something different! Numerous potted plants were hidden in the doorway, which blocked the view so that the dog could no longer see his buddy. Kacy began to wonder why she hadn’t even realized this, yet she was thinking about a plan in helping her dog with his anxiety.

Nothing Was Working

Kacy tried a lot to relieve the depression of her dog by playing with him, getting him for a stroll when she could, and giving him new toys, but she didn’t feel like she’s helping him. He kept loading and wouldn’t even answer Kacy – despite taking treats. Finally, Kacy had enough, but she had no option except one thing she hadn’t attempted. Even if she thought it was insane, she still did it.

Not Like Most People

Some people would have just left, but Kacy was different from most people. After she saw how depressed her dog was because of the cat, she decided to try something that would make her dog happy again. Kacy tried to reach out to her neighbor about the cat with the hope that it would help. It seemed a bit insane, but it would surely make you smile to see what the man did with pure love with his dog!

Her Request

Kacy did not know her neighbor well, but she always tried and hoped he would be accommodating. She wrote a note to her neighbor describing the events she experienced in the past few weeks. She even asked the neighbor if they could kindly cut the plants covering the window to stop her dog from being unhappy. So, despite having no idea how her neighbor might react, Kacy taped the notice to the neighbor’s window, so the response she received was surprising and also very odd.

Waiting For A Reply

Kacy didn’t have any idea what to expect when she left her note at her neighbor’s house. However, she hoped that her neighbor won’t think of her as insane just because she loved her dog a lot, she had to live next to her neighbor. Of course, she didn’t want people to call her “the crazy dog lady.” The next day, Kacy received a neighbor’s response, which obviously didn’t take long to respond, and she couldn’t believe how the neighbor responded!

The Neighbor’s Response

More than pleased to do so, Kacy’s neighbor removed the plants immediately as a reply to her note. He also agreed that plants are not really as important as love. But the question was: Did the animals really love? People will find out soon. After taking off the plants, they checked if the dog and cat would still look at each other through the window or if the absence led the animals to lose interest.

Charlie And Scout

Although their story isn’t the best, it is definitely the most emotional and it reveals the bonds between a dog and a cat can go very far after death. Unlike anyone else, Charlie the dog and Scout had a friendship and they enjoyed everything together. After Charlie died, Scout never got back to his old self. Charlie’s old recordings had to be viewed on a monitor and the poor cat had to curl around to nap.

In San Francisco, a man came to Rocket Dog Rescue to search for a dog and fell in love with Merrill, a three-year-old pit Bull.

Taco and Merrill sobbed endlessly until Taco was able to be with Merrill in the recovery area.

Their Best Chance

The shelter staff knows for a fact that coupled pets are harder to adopt since not all people are ready to care for two pets at the same time. That is why Taco and Merill were listed separately on their website hoping that they could find a home for each dog. As senior dogs become harder to find homes, Taco did not have much desire. Merrill was a different scenario, however.

Problems

Taco was a senior dog and had several health issues, such as asthma and dental disease. He only had four teeth. However, these issues seemed to be mild in comparison to what the doctor told the family a month after the family brought Taco for a check-up. Unfortunately, the outlook wasn’t so great.

The medical evaluation showed Taco had an enlarged heart and that there are fluids that filled his lungs. He’d probably suffer imminent heart failure if nothing was done soon. He was immediately put on medications and arranged for a professional examination. The family was looking for the best, but they were preparing for the worst.

Life Goes On

While Taco has effectively stabilized and his heart has not become at risk, he still has a variety of respiratory problems, which include life-long medications such as anti-seizure and lung steroids. But that doesn’t deter Taco and his human siblings and his best friend, Merrill, from having fun.

As Merrill is still a young adult, she is active and very enthusiastic. She likes to jump and ride on the lawn, so Taco seeks other opportunities to enjoy the game while not being able to keep up with her best friend. The little Chihuahua enjoys being brought by his human siblings to where Merrill plays. Nevertheless, Taco and Merrill love to spend every day realizing that they are always together.
