Meet the cat who taught his best friend pooch to walk on a lead.

Floyd, a four year old Persian, and TUD, the three year old golden doodle were filmed leading each other around by a leash.

The pair have been best pet pals since TUD went to live with Candi Garrison after her daughter and daughter in law Cami Garrison and Susie Floros, adopted Floyd.

Now the furry friends have become instagram stars with over 50K fans following their adventures.

Susie from Longmont, Colorado, said: “Floyd taught TUD to walk on a leash in their baby days together.

“Now, it’s a legitimate question on who is walking whom.

“Whenever the Dood visits, he and Floyd love going on walks together.

“Though this maneuver is a rarity and looks like a scene out of Reservoir Dogs .”

Floyd was adopted in 2013, and TUD in 2014.

Susie said: “Floyd & TUD met right after TUD’s parents adopted him.

“TUD’s name is an acronym & stands for Totally Unnecessary Dog, as his family didn’t think they needed a dog; they just really wanted one.

“Personally I think his name should be changed to TED as he is now a Totally Essential Dog who they cannot live without.

“I was going out of town and Floyd’s Grammy and Grampy offered to watch Floyd.

” They got TUD the following day and off they went on a RV trip together in Moab, Utah.

“In no time the two became fast friends as kitten and puppy. In those days it was hard to tell where one ended and the other began as they would nap together and their fur was the same colour.

“Floyd’s favorite thing is to give TUD his signature Thai massage, though TUD only appreciates said gesture when Floyd’s claws are manicured.

“Floyd also likes to groom his dog and TUD accepts this with pleasure. Napping and people watching are great pastimes together.”

Floyd is a famous feline with 44.9 followers on Instagram and even has his own clothing line Floyd the Lion.

Susie said: “He’s a cat with a lion heart. He is a majestic, fluffy little creature who brings a lot of happiness into our lives.”
