A blind dog has acquired an unlikely sidekick - a cat who acts as his guide.

As Terfel's cataracts caused his sight to decline, the ageing dog began confining himself to his basket to avoid bumping into things.

Then Judy Godfrey-Brown let a stray cat into her home and was amazed at what happened next.

Terfel and Pwditat are living in harmony in North Wales


Like a scene out of a Disney movie the cat approached Terfel and appearing to sense he could not see, gently led him out of his basket and outside into the garden.

Ever since the eight-year-old dog has been using the cat's eyes to help him find his way around.

Stunned Judy, 57, has christened the moggy Pwditat and marvels at the bond between the cat and dog.

The retired civil servant of Holyhead, North Wales, said: "I've never seen anything like it - most cats and dogs hate each other.

"Pwditat immediately seemed to know that Terfel is blind through some sort of sixth sense that animals have.

"She uses her paws to help guide him around the house and in the garden.

"They are glued to each other and even sleep together now."
