This story features a dog and a cat and believe me it is not about fighting, killing or running after each other but about love, compassion, and faith in each other. Check the slides and get exposed to this usually ignored side of these animal’s nature.
A cat running for her life from a dog is a very common sight. But have you ever seen a dog protecting a kitten? Both sharing a very truthful and honest friendship? Well, this story is just about that. It documents a Husky mother and a kitten daughter that breaks all the general perceptions people hold about their species’ acrimony. They, instead of falling into the cat-dog fight, preferred to do something unusual. They chose to love each other. The pair would surely overwhelm you with the purity of their friendship.
A Lonely Kitten
This orphaned three-week-old kitten was abandoned on the streets of Sana Jose, California to fend for herself when it captured the attention of the Bui sisters. The sisters filled with compassion for the puss took her home and tried to bottle feed her. It was not the first time the sisters had fostered animals.
They named her Rosie. Though she had gotten a house, she was deprived of something that she required the most at that point in time i.e. the love of a mother. The sisters tried very hard to cheer her up and feed her but the cat’s condition, on the other hand, kept on worsening as she had given up on food. The little Rosie had no idea how detrimental her behavior could be for her.
The sisters also had Huskies as pets and one of them was called Lilo. Much to Bui sister’s astonishment the dog met this sullen kitten with a very friendly approach. What do you think happened next?
Siberian Huskies are very adventurous by nature. They are fearless and love to have people around. They have a very friendly nature towards strangers and other dogs. Huskies are intelligent too and have a good prey drive.
Well, it is indeed difficult to believe, but the kitten and dog soon struck up a very strong bond. Husky begun to take care of her and her every tiny need. She used to lick her and nuzzle her. To put it more clearly, she treated her like her own pup. Nobody had ever expected that this small cat would find her foster mother in a dog.
She Had No Child
Lilo could never have her own puppy and wasn’t able to have one even in the future. So, when she saw this small kitten in the house she could not help but shower all her love on her.
The love and warmth of the mother Husky did not go in vain and once a sorrowful kitten, Rosie now transformed into a jolly one. She became more active and playful. Whenever she felt tired of her games she used to take rest inside the warm fur of her foster mother. She even used to suckle from Lilo.
Copying Her Mother
The influence of Lilo was evident on the Rosie. The little kitten soon began to mimic every action of Husky. It looked very funny and overwhelming at the same time. She, just like her mother wanted to be on a leash while going out for a walk.
Best Place In The World
The sisters have beautifully explained the affectionate relationship between the two animal in a blog. They also wrote on the blog “[Rosie] drank every drop and nestled into Lilo’s fur to sleep. When she awoke again, it was as if new life was breathed into this little kitten.”
Innate Motherly Instinct
The Bui sisters were completely surprised by the relationship of the two. They stated, “Lilo has always had an innate motherly instinct, but she really surprised us when she went full surrogate mode. Lilo has never had puppies of her own and never will. But motherhood may just be her calling.”
A Message To The World
They continued, “If everyone loved the way Lilo & Rosie did, there would be no evil in this world. Their message to everyone: Love does not see with the eyes, but with the heart.”
World For Each Other
If you look at them you would not be able to believe that they are not real mother-daughter. It seems that they are enough for each other, they don’t need anyone else.
The family just not consist of Lilo and Rosie but two other Huskies too. Rosie began to grow closer to the other two also.
They Accepted Her
The other Siberian Huskies in the pack were Miko and Infinity. Though initially, the other two were reluctant to induct this stranger to their group, eventually they too got along well with Rosie. Now they do almost everything together from playing to eating and sleeping.
A Cat More Like A Dog
Interestingly, the daughter Rosie has copied many traits from her foster mother. She has a penchant for hiking and is very fearless. She is not frightened of water either, unlike most of her species. She has become more of a Husky in the body of a cat.
Taking Inspiration From Her
The grown-up Rosie has been following the footstep of her foster mother. She has adopted 9 kittens and is taking very good care of them just like her Huskie mother did.
The amazing bond of Lilo, Rosie, and their pals gathered a lot of fame. They even go out for a walk together. Have you seen any friendship so strange?
