Dogs, with their boundless energy and playful nature, can sometimes forget their own strength. This can lead to some miscommunication, especially with their feline counterparts. One such incident recently unfolded between a young golden retriever named Finn and his cat sibling, Zumba.

Finn, still a puppy, hasn’t quite figured out that his high energy levels aren’t always appreciated by everyone, especially Zumba. His owner, known on TikTok as @trace_marie_3, shared this insight with Newsweek, “Finn can be rough sometimes since he is a puppy and still learning to be gentle.”

The owner further explained, “Zumba went at him too hard and Finn whimpered.” Finn, taken aback by Zumba’s reaction, retreated to the couch, his hurt evident in a TikTok video posted on March 4.

However, Zumba, realizing he had overreacted, decided to extend an olive branch. His reaction was a result of Finn’s constant playful pestering, but he knew he had been too harsh, especially seeing Finn so upset.


In a display of feline diplomacy, Zumba slowly approached Finn on the couch, signaling his intention to make amends. Finn, still nursing his hurt feelings, held out as long as he could, but a gentle snoot boop from Zumba was all it took to mend fences.

“Finn would not go near Zumba the rest of the day mostly,” the owner shared. “It took a while for Finn to come around but they were back to playing normally the next day.”

The incident served as a valuable lesson for Finn, who now understands his boundaries with Zumba. He’s learned to back off more easily during their play sessions, realizing that his puppy energy isn’t always welcome. And, thankfully, this was the first and only time Zumba reacted so strongly.

“When the cat is apologizing first you know they very wrong,” commented one TikTok user. Another added: “Love how Finn is sulking but getting weaker by the moment.”
