Abandoned puppy and kitten...think that they are SISTERS [w/pix, video]
Daily Mail [UK] ^ | 10 October 2012

Posted on 10/13/2012 11:49:44 PM PDT by Slings and Arrows

An orphaned puppy and abandoned kitten who were put together at a rescue centre have become so close - they think they are sisters.

Kitty the cat was brought into Battersea Cats and Dogs Home by a kind-hearted member of the public who found her alone in a garden when she was just one day old.

To keep her company she was put together with Buttons the Jack Russell, who was born at the centre but rejected by her mother as the runt of the litter.

She said: 'Normally we’d hand rear puppies and kittens separately but we thought we could try putting them together as they are both so young.

'Luckily it’s paid off as they adore being with each other and do everything together - it’s really very sweet.'

-snip-

Kitty and Buttons were put together when they were about two weeks old and treat each other like siblings.

LOL! The video shows that the puppy wants to play and the kitten just wants the puppy to leave her alone! Typical!

My cat and dog love one another too. When she was a kitten she’d climb in his doggy bed and sleep cuddled up next to him and still as an adult cat she loves all over him. Both are rescue animals.

Nah, most of us have our own personal stories of cat/dog cuteness.

130lb German Shepherd cuddles with his adoptive mom and dad, previously known as the house cats.
Poor humans, warily eyeing the new world order!

After watching the video I think the Jack Russell is a little too rough

lol

Terriers are not cat friendly so it's not really necessary for these to to be adopted together. When that JR get’s older he won't be as nice to the kitty, even though they were raised together.

I had a Jack Russell Terrier for 17 years, and she got on just fine with my cats - one regarded her as her mama, and one regularly tried to groom her. The JRT would break up squabbles between the cats if she thought they were getting too rough. Buttons and Kitty will be fine.

I would take them in a second. I just hope the new owners get screened very well because it takes a ton of patience to raise a puppy and kitten at the same time.

My best friend had a female German Shepherd when she adopted 3 feral lkittens. That dog used to drag those kittens around by “swallowing” their whole heads in her mouth and dragging them around. They didn’t mind at all and grew up to be fine friends.

Jack Russel's are hunters ... I think we're seeing a natural developement.

Cute ... but Disney did us all a diservice by attributing humanity to animals and now we think animals have the cognative abilities that humans have.

With three fingered cloves.

I agree with your assessment. That kitty is not playing. She's afraid of the dog and the entire video shows the feline trying to escape. She even tries to jump up on her owner's lap for a safe haven, but is rejected.

Things will eventually turn nasty in a month or so......and the scenario will not be so "cute".

Thank you! I thought I was just being cynical but having two cats and a dog, I can see the kitten is not having fun during the video at certain times and is kinda scared. Kittens are way more fragile than a terrier pup. Terriers are aggressive and natural hunters of small prey. I mean, the kitten once it becomes bigger can jump up on something to avoid the aggression but now it’s being tortured and sorry that’s my opinion. It tries to play as its the nature of a kitten but the pup is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too rough and needs to be corrected or the kitten removed when it starts getting too rough.

Very Kyoot.
Jack Russels are energetic but my sister in law had one who always acted like he’d just had ten cups of coffee and he got on with her kittehs quite well.

I too own a JRT and love the dog..no more moles in

the yard.She will let you know when someone pulls

in the driveway.She seems to get along well with my two

cats though they are not what you would call close

I`ve heard they are not great dogs for someone that

wants an indoor animal.Mine goes out and follows the

cows around a lot and they get along great

I hear what you are saying about Disney, all that Bambi stuff but dogs are different. My dogs, 3 Jack Russels and a hound dog, can tell me things and ask me things and I swear there is mental telepathy between us.

They have a certain bark, I call it their rabbit bark and I know there is a rabbit in the yard. A particular sound they make when they need to go out to pee. I had to stop using the word “treat” because they were all over me when I said it. Now they have learned to spell because when I spell t-r-e-a-t it is the same thing.

Sweet kitteh and puppy.

Hope their food has Taurine so kitteh won't lose her eyesight.

Taurine is an amino acid essential to a cat's diet. Sufficient amounts of taurine usually exist in commercial cat foods (both dry and wet), but cats are at risk of a taurine deficiency if fed homemade foods or a vegetarian diet. Taurine deficiency in felines can cause central retinal degeneration, leading to irreversible blindness, as well as heart failure.

I’m sure it does.

Apropos of nothing in particular, I think the article underestimated the kitten’s age. At 4 weeks a kitten still has that drowned-rat look.* I’d peg her at 6 weeks myself.

[*OK, OK - an *adorable* drowned rat.]

“That kitty is not playing. She’s afraid of the dog and the entire video shows the feline trying to escape. She even tries to jump up on her owner’s lap for a safe haven”

Nonsense. You all take this way too seriously. The cat at worst maybe just doesn’t feel like playing now while the dog does. The cat’s tail is STRAIGHT UP nearly the whole time. She’s satisfied, just not that into it, although she does play back in her own way. The way you all talk before I watched, I thought she was actually running away or totally avoiding this dog altogether. Not the case.

After all, look at the still pix as well and the word of the people involved. It’s not just this 1 film that says it all.

I watched a video, not sure if it is the one the poster is referring to, and didn’t see any fear in the kitten. They both went after each other, when puppy nibbled, kitten nibbled right back.
