Rosie is a rescue stray who was found at just 3 weeks old. She was a very sickly little kitten until they set her up with Lilo, a gentle Husky who changed the life of the little kitten forever.
“She almost did not make it through the first night… Even with round the clock care. She was lethargic and limp. So we decided to go out on a limb and let her cuddle extensively with Lilo (the Husky),” Rosie’s human wrote at Instagram.
“By some miracle, she started suckling on Lilo and Lilo went full ‘mom mode’. Even stimulating it to go to the bathroom… Since then, Rosie’s been getting much better and her eyes opened!
Lilo has always had an innate motherly instinct, but she really surprised us when she went full surrogate mode! Even letting Rosie suckle on her and stimulating her to eliminate! Lilo has never had puppies of her own, and never will. But motherhood may just be her calling”
Lilo has taught Rosie many of her skills. One of them is to walk with a pack of dogs like a dog. Perhaps Rosie thinks she’s a puppy too? We know, too cute for words!
“Rosie’s first outing to the park! She’s so adventurous and confident, just like her mama!”
There’s nothing quite like some good old-fashioned motherly love!
