This is Hema the rescue pit bull who is completely obsessed with fostering kittens.
“All she wants to do is lick and snuffle them,” dog’s owner Marissa Clingen admitted to The Dodo.
“Who would have thought a stray D.C. pit bull with scars on her face would be a good kitten mother?”
It all started a few years back when Hema landed in the Humane Rescue Alliance, which is located Washington, D.C.
“She was found as a stray but had many, many bite wounds,” the shelter’s spokesperson Alix Tolley told The Dodo.
Considering that the poor dog had such a rough start in life, she was still a very loving doggie. Perhaps that’s why when Clingen swung by the shelter one day, she immediately fell head over paws in love with Hema and took her home as soon as she could.
Clingen volunteers as a kitten foster, however, she was still surprised to see Hema get so deep into the role of being a mama.
“It truly brings tears to my eyes,” said Tolley.
“The fact that she can still be so loving to those kittens shows the resilience of these animals.”
To date, Hema has fostered more than 20 kitties over the period of three years – and the kitten-obsessed pit bull is truly enjoying every minute of it.
