Dog, Rat And Cat Were Surrendered At Shelter, Refuse To Leave Each Other’s Sides


Tweaks, Sasha and Jack were an unlikely team, and while the idea of a rat, dog and cat hanging out as pals might seem silly (or something out of a Disney movie), these guys became fast friends. They were all under the same roof and when their owners needed to downsize, they were brought to the shelter together. According to a spokesperson from the Oshkosh Area Humane Society, taking in three pets from one home is not standard operating procedure.

When it was time for the crew to receive their examinations, they did not take kindly to being split up. Jack was especially displeased with this idea and he let the staff know it. Jack was not willing to cooperate with the staff and when he began to growl, they knew that they would need to let his siblings come along with him. Sasha was brought in to the room and Jack immediately calmed down.

What the staff did not know was that Jack struggled with vision impairment and he was relying on Sasha to help him. Thanks to her help, Jack was still able to get around. Tweaks is the elder of the family and the three animals became noticeably happier once they were given the chance to reunite. They were all overjoyed to see each other again and rightfully so.

We had no idea that a cat, a rat and a dog would be able to become such great friends and while some might be shocked, animals have always shown an ability to befriend creatures of different species. Human beings could stand to learn something from animals like these, as they are able to let bygones be bygones and be the best of friends no matter what.


The staff that was responsible for their rescue elected to respect their wishes and keep them together. They hoped that they would find a special family who was willing to take on all of them as a group, so that they would not have to experience a permanent separation. When Kathy and her daughter came in one day, these animals finally had the family that they needed.

They wanted to adopt the whole trio and Kathy believed that they would make a great fit at her home. These pets have found their happily ever after at long last and we are glad to see their Disney-esque story has received the same sort of happy ending that you would see in one of the many movies from their classic library.
