Abandoned Puppy & Orphaned Kitten: Best Friends (Photos)

At Battersea Dogs & Cats Home in Old Windsor, UK, two lonely baby animals have adopted each other. They have become such close friends that they treat each other like sisters.

The kitten, named Kitty, was found abandoned in a garden when she was only one day old. Buttons, the puppy, was the runt of her litter, and was unfortunately rejected by her mother. Normally, the two of them would be hand-reared separately … but because of their very young ages, the center decided to try raising them together.

Sascha Taylor, a veterinary nurse at Battersea, says, “Luckily, it’s paid off, as they adore being with each other and do everything together – it’s really very sweet.” Kitty and Buttons were introduced to each other when they were two weeks old; they are now four weeks old and inseparable, even eating, sleeping, and playing together.

The animal home is hoping to rehome both Kitty and Buttons into the same forever home, once they’re older, so that they can stay friends for life. (If you live near London and think that you could be a good companion for Buttons and Kitty, contact Battersea!)

I hope that these two get to be adopted together. It would be so sad to separate them now, since they get alone so well. Really beautiful photos.

I can see these two being rehomed very quickly.

I hope that by highlighting these two very cute animals, this will draw people to the animal shelter who will take on an older cat or dog.
