A poor mother dog, who lost her puppies in premature labor, has adopted a litter of orphaned kittens in a heartwarming twist of events.
Who says dogs and cats can’t be friends?
But how true really is this?
Dogs and cats can be the best of friends… when they want to be, of course!
And people who own both cats and dogs can totally agree that it is total and utter nonsense that dogs and cats hate each other.
Or gently introduced to one another, dogs and cats will live in harmony with each other.
And the heartwarming story of Georgia the dog has proven the amazing bond between our favorite pets.
And she was recently taken into care by The Sunshine Dog Rescue in Phoenix, Arizona.
But when she went into premature labor, she sadly lost her 3 puppies.
“Going into premature labor gave her babies no chance of living outside of her womb. While my heart hurts for the puppies that never got to run and play, my heart is so very sad for Georgia. She is looking for her babies and it is heartbreaking to watch,” the rescue wrote in a Facebook post on August 13th.
And the staff at the rescue shelter noticed her pining and searching for her babies.
But it simply wasn’t enough.
Even though Sunshine specializes in dogs, the shelter took in an abandoned litter of 3 motherless kittens.
And just as they’d hoped, the grieving dog took to them straight away.
Anita Osa, executive director of Sunshine, told KXTV that she was “certainly unsure” about Georgia taking in the cats as her own but ended up being pleasantly surprised.
“She LOVES them. So far we have been able to get one to latch and are bottle feeding until the other 2 figure it out too,” the rescue wrote on August 15th.
The other 2 kittens were “thriving” and were bonding strongly with their new mom.
Another kitten was also added to the little family, a ginger tabby named Goober.
“They have all opened their eyes, are gaining weight (now weigh 7-8 ounces each), and seem very content with mama,” read an August 20th update.
Way too cute!
And even though her goodbye may be difficult, she and the kittens will now be able to live long and happy lives… all thanks to each other.
