Orphaned puppy, Buttons, and abandoned Kitty, were put together at Battersea Cats & Dogs Home and have become so close, they think they are sisters…
Kitty the cat was brought into the shelter by a passer by who found her alone in a garden aged 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.
They have since become inseparable – and even cry when Kitty is moved to the cattery to spend some time with other cats. Battersea Veterinary Nurse Sascha Taylor says the pair eat, sleep and play together. ‘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 put together when they were about two weeks old and treat each other like siblings. Staff at the animal home are hoping someone has enough room to adopt the loveable pair, who are now both around four weeks old.
