They Thought This Kitten Was Going To Die, But Then She Met A Husky Named Lilo

ADVERTISEMENT

Rosie the adorable kitten, found and rescued on the brink of death, was nursed back to health by Lilo the Siberian husky, who took the abandoned animal on as a puppy of her own. The then-three-week-old feline and her nanny dog bonded instantly, and after a week of tender and loving care, Rosie opened her eyes and began to walk on her own.

“She almost did not make it through the first night,” writes lilothehusky on Instagram, “even with round the clock care. Our cute kitten was lethargic and limp. So we decided to go out on a limb and let her cuddle extensively with our husky dog Lilo. By some miracle, she started suckling on Lilo and Lilo went full ‘mom mode’ and because of that this story has a happy ending.”

While surrogacy and animal friendships like these happen from time to time, lilothehusky warns against trying to force it: “Huskies are notorious for their intense prey drive!! So please please don’t run out and get a kitten (or a husky) expecting them to be best friends.”

“Since then, Rosie’s been getting much better and her eyes opened!”

“Lilo has never had puppies of her own, and never will”

“But motherhood may just be her calling”

Rosie is now almost 3.5 months old and is doing well in her new family

She even goes for walks in the park with her mom!

God awful! The page, I mean. Who auto-starts multiple videos at a time when you load a page? Not a web designer.
