Cohrs explained to Newsweek, “Ruby is my second foster and I have been crate rotating her to help everyone adjust, and eventually do slow introductions.” She added, “Our nightly routine is to cuddle on the couch, watch television or read before she goes up to her room and crate for the evening.”

“On that evening, she saw me looking at her, then closed her eyes and started snoring. She’s a super intelligent pup and knows how to play on my heart strings! I don’t think it was a coincidence. She knows that I won’t bother her when she’s snoozing and that I will wait for her to get up before heading upstairs for bed,” she continued.

Cohrs, who runs the TikTok account, has a long history of caring for dogs. “Tater tot, who I call Tate, is my first rescue dog. He completely changed by life for the better and inspired me to start fostering dogs last year. That’s when I adopted my first foster,” she shared.


Currently, Cohrs lives in North Carolina and works as a bartender. She has three dogs, Tate, Ruby, and Pea. She sometimes shortens her name to Cait, as it rhymes with Tate.
