    If there is one thing this pandemic has taught people, it’s that social distancing could save the day: just like humans who try to avoid handshakes because of the dangers of coronavirus, a golden retriever has remained cautious of high-fiving.

    This video shows a golden retriever, sitting face to face with a cat it has befriended. The cat, supposedly, is trying to give the dog a playful high-five, but the retriever, aware of the importance of social distancing, keeps blocking the kitty's attempts by constantly putting its paw down.

    The cat eventually deciding it's had enough of being snubbed, looks the dog straight in the eye and leaps up for a big, clingy hug, because... well, why not?

    The adorable video of the kitty-golden retriever duo has attracted thousands of likes and loads of comments on Instagram.
