In one household, an adventurous kitten has decided it would like a piggyback ride from the dog!
Both people and animals can carry their offspring different ways. People often hold their children in their arms or lap. As the kids grow older and larger, they may give them rides on their back instead. Animals, on the other hand, tend to carry their children with their mouths. Others have special pouches or allow their offspring to piggy back ride.
Many animals have been recorded giving piggyback rides to other species. We have seen monkeys riding dogs, parrots on dogs, and turtles, and many other cross-species rides. In one household, an adventurous kitten has decided it would like a piggyback ride from the dog.With the kitten’s mother nearby, the kitten grabs a hold of the dog’s side and tries to climb aboard.
With the kitten’s claws latched into the dog’s side, we see the poor dog jump in surprise and pain as the tiny claws dig in. Each time the kitten moves the dog jolts and jumps around trying to get the kitten to loosen its grip and fall off!
