Yankee the giant Saint Bernard lets stray cats snuggle up to him every night

Yankee the giant St. Bernard is a big softy at heart.
Nine-year-old Yankee has been letting dozens of stray cats cuddle up to him when he goes to sleep every night to shelter them from the cold.

Keegan Vansoelen, the owner said:

“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 colour as Yankee’s coat, so sometimes they are hard to see on him.”

“The cats are all barn cats. Sometimes there will only be three or four, other times there are a lot more. I think I counted 16 in one picture,” he said.

“They’ll sleep like that as long as he lays still and doesn’t get up.
Most of the time he just lets them lay and sleep on him. Every once in a while though he’ll get irritated with it and get up.”
