An adorable and unlikely friendship between a cat and a dog has been caught on camera while the pooch brings a toy around the around for them to play with. 

German shepherd Anya loves nothing more than bringing her best friend, kitten Munchie, her favourite toy and enticing her to play with her.

At first Munchie just stares at Anya as though she is trying to resist the temptation.

But after a few seconds she gives in and dives for the toy before the two spend ages in a disjointed tug of war.  

Ms Knoble said: ‘When we first brought Munchie the rescue kitten home, she was really scared and just stayed on the basement stairs.

‘One day our dog Anya just picked up her toy and started playing with Munchie trying to get her to chase it. Since then, they play everyday.

‘Anya is the one who truly helped Munchie not be afraid and helped her to adjust to her new life of living with us.

‘She usually plays with her every morning, or whenever we leave the toy out laying around.

Ms Knoble said: ‘Anya is the one who truly helped Munchie not be afraid and helped her to adjust to her new life of living with us’

‘Munchie has grown from a tiny, scared kitten living in a dumpster all alone, to becoming a member of our family who is loved and cherished.

‘It melts our hearts that Anya instinctively knew how to help Munchie to not be afraid. You can’t help but smile when you see them playing together.’

‘They play lovingly and they love to tease each other, too! Not all angels have wings, some have four paws and fur.’
