Dozens of stray cats have been welcomed by a nine year old giant St. Bernard who let his feline friends cuddle up to him every night to shelter them from the cold.
His name is Yankee who lives in a home in Iowa. Owner Keegan Vansoelen frequently finds the cats coming to his home from a barn and snuggling up to his dog Yankee for warmth.
"We discovered the cats sleeping on him one morning about a year ago. It looks like a big ball of fur. Many of the cats are the same color as Yankee's coat, so sometimes they are hard to see on him," he said.
Every night Yankee keeps his kitty friends warm and protected. "It happens quite a bit during the winter, as it can get pretty cold here. Even during the summer they lay with him. I think they do it just to be close to another creature," Vansoelen added.
