Some say that dogs and cats can’t be best friends — but Morticia and Gomez managed to convince an entire stadium of people otherwise, in just one day…
Earlier this week, a Good Samaritan spotted a small dog and a little black kitten huddled together between two portable toilets. It was at the Hampton Soccer Park in Hampton, Virginia where they discovered the pair. The fur-babies were cramming themselves between two portable toilets.
A small Chihuahua was bravely protecting a young black kitten in the tight space.
The animal lover had no idea where the two had come from or if they had been abandoned at the location. Regardless, they knew they had to help the duo!
They posted on a local private social network called Nextdoor. In the hopes of locating owners had the 2 simply εscαρεd, the post eventually found its way onto the Facebook animal group, Lost & Found Pets of Hampton Roads, VA. When Angela Davis Ward saw the post, she and her daughter rushed to the site to lend a hand. Protecting the kitten at all costs, the dog would bark and growl if they attempted to approach.
By the time A.C. arrived, the pup had realized they were not in dan.ger and officers were able to grab the dog without using a catch pole. Always a better sign when you can get close enough to the animal to scruff them. The kitten seemed to have some skin issues and both were off to the vet for a full checkup.
Being a dog/cat bonded pair, there was almost no chance they’d be housed together at Animal Control. They are also unable to enforce animals be adopted together.
The 2-year-old Chihuahua and 10-month-old kitten seemed to have been αbαndσnεd or strays that found comfort in each other. Turkan Ertugrul, director at the shelter, had seen the original post. She had tossed and turned all night waiting for an update on the pair.
As soon as she received word the two were unclaimed, she quickly brought them into the rescues foster care. This way they could demand the bonded pair be adopted into their fur-ever home TOGETHER!
Now the pair are happily living in foster care, They will then be put up for adoption.
Attracting the attention: Ertugrul gave a happy update; Gomez ran up to the foster’s black cats initially, thinking one was Morticia and you could see his disappointment when he realized it wasn’t her. Gomez is shy around people when he first meets them, but warms up quickly. They are both happier and more outgoing when together than when they meet people individually.
Now that you’ve fallen head over paws for this darling duo.
They are amazing & are so intelligent this little guy is a hero
Animals are the best thing on this earth so glad they were saved hope they got a loveing forever together with a good family
