Blind dates are always nerve-wracking, even for animals. Carla Zanoni of New York City was worried that her four-year-old pit bull terrier, Getrude, would reject her newly adopted kitten named Earnestine.

Instead, the pets surprised Zanoni by quickly becoming enamored with one another. The video above shows the adorable behavior that has become normal for this animal odd couple. Apparently, Earnestine and Gertrude often spend their days cuddling together and exchanging sweet, interspecies kisses.

It’s just the kind of “awww” you need to start the weekend off right.
