'Idgie' the Dog and 'Ruth' the Paralyzed Cat Have a Special Bond 2:10

This video by the Orlando Sentinel quickly debunks the idea that dogs and cats do not get along. "Idgie" the dog and "Ruth" the cat are the best of friends (Yes, they were named after the two main characters in Fried Green Tomatoes!). They were found together abandoned at the end of a driveway. They were taken by Animal Control and have been inseparable ever since. Both Idgie and Ruth were adopted by Hollywood Houndz, and have become local celebrities of sorts, with customers going in just to see them or bring them Christmas gifts. Sounds like a happy "tail" to us!
