Rescue pitbull thinks he’s a cat and loves to climb on tables – and the fridge

A rescue pitbull's owners have been left in hysterics after the pooch took after their cats.

Mako, a two-year-old pup which Bethany and Samantha Castiller adopted him from a shelter loves following his cat siblings no matter where they climb – even if that means on top of the fridge.

Bethany and Samantha had initially wondered whether the dog would get along with their cats but are now convinced he was raised with plenty feline friends to play with.

“We initially kept the cats in a separate part of the house because we wanted to slowly introduce them to the new dog,” Bethany told Bored Panda.

“He started jumping up on the small tables we had around the house and we thought he was just super excited and full of energy.”

Although they've called Mako a "weird little dude" in one of their viral clips, Bethany and Samantha are utterly besotted with their pooch – and say it was love at first sight when they spotted him at the shelter.

The pair say they fell in love with him instantly and thought he was "adorable".

Bethany said: “When we went to the pet shelter, Mako had looked over his shoulder and gave us direct eye contact and we just fell in love with the little guy.

“At the time, he looked like a bobblehead because his head was so much larger than his body, we just thought he was adorable.”

Mako's climbing antics have now made him a social media star, with more than 27k followers on Instagram and an even more impressive 32k followers on TikTok.

He climbs wherever the cats do, and his owners believe it's all because he loves them so much he just wants to hang out with his cat pals no matter where they are.

It wasn’t until Bethany and Samantha introduced the pup to the cats that they realised he acts like them.

“They would be on the counters and he would jump up there with them," Bethany said. "He just wanted to be around them all the time.”
