The healing power of love – a Husky adopted an orphaned kitten
13:00 - 03 September 2017
They thought the tiny kitten wouldn’t make it to the next day. But then something magical happened that no one expected. Read the incredible story of Rosie and Lilo.
Rosie, the kitten was nearly 3 weeks old when the family found her. She was so weak that she could hardly take a single step without help. Her condition was terrible, she was sick and tired – and lonely. Her rescuers took her home, cared for her but they didn’t really believe that she would ever recover... Rosie’s tiny body lacked all strength, her little heart pumped slower. Everyone waited hopefully for her to wake up next morning.
However, the family’s dog, Lilo believed in the kitten and she proved that the healing power of love can do a miracle. The Siberian Husky lady decided to take care of Rosie and patiently guarded every single step she made. Though Lilo has never had puppies before her maternal instincts came alive: she cleaned the kitten fondly and let her cuddle with her – much to the family’s surprise. The dog certainly felt that Rosie needed help so she gave her what she needed the most: love, warmth and safety.
Rosie and her stepmother bonded from the first minute and they are inseparable now. After a week of tender care, the little kitten’s eyed opened and she took her first clumsy steps alone. Slowly, she became stronger and during the next couple of months, she has turned into a lively and playful cat. She feels wonderful in her loving family and she follows Lilo everywhere, she even accompanies her big furry stepmom to the park whenever they go for a walk.
Adoption is relatively rare among different species. Nevertheless we can find amazing examples of friendships between dogs and cats and the probably the most beautiful are those, where an adult canine adopts a kitten or vice versa. Though science states that their conflict originates from prehistoric times, today dogs and cats live in peaceful harmony in most homes. Rosie’s heartwarming photos give us a wonderful proof.
