In a delightful display of interspecies cooperation, a golden retriever named Leila has found a way to make her feline sibling useful. The clever canine has learned that the cat’s claws can provide the perfect solution to an itch she just can’t reach.

A TikTok video, posted by user @leilathegoldenretriever on April 4, showcases this unusual partnership. Leila strategically positions herself in front of the chair where the black cat is lounging, an ideal spot for some much-needed “butt scratchies.”

“Maybe he’s not so bad after all,” the video’s caption humorously notes.

The cat, surprisingly, doesn’t hesitate to get involved. It extends its paws and begins to scratch away, much to Leila’s delight. The golden retriever hops up in satisfaction, occasionally glancing back as if to request more vigorous scratching.


While it may seem that Leila is the sole beneficiary of this arrangement, the cat is also having its share of fun. In its mind, it’s playtime, and it’s getting in a few playful jabs. Oblivious to this, Leila is too engrossed in the bliss of being scratched. It’s a win-win situation for both pets.

“Dogs like getting scratched in this area because it is hard to reach for them,” according to a pet behavior expert. The area also has a lot of nerve endings. However, Dr. Bonnie Beaver, a professor of veterinary medicine at Texas A&M University, warns that excessive scratching, bad odor, or bald spots might indicate allergies or skin issues.
