Lilo The Siberian Husky Becomes Surrogate Mother To A Kitten

Yes, you read the title correctly. Being animal lovers, I know you have all heard some crazy stories about different animal species being surrogate mothers, as have I. A few weeks ago, a friend of mine via Twitter shared a story with me...a story of a kitten in dire need. I would like to introduce you to Lilo The Siberian Husky, and Rosie the kitten. Lilo's paw-rents rescued a tiny kitten who was so young, her eyes were not even open yet. The kittens situation seemed hopeless. When I spoke with Lilo's hu-mom she told us: "Rosie was really lethargic and unresponsive her first night, so we decided to let her cuddle extensively with Lilo. Lilo has always had an innate motherly instinct, but she really surprised us when she went full surrogate mode."  The strangest and perhaps most amazing part of this story is that Lilo had never had pups of her own, nor will she ever. However once the motherly instincts kicked in, there was no stopping her.


The rescue happened about 9 weeks ago. Curious to know what has happened since then? I think i'll let the photos from Lilo's Instagram page speak for themselves.


The photo shown above was Rosie the kittens first trip to the park with surrogate mom, Lilo.


The whole pack!

The terrible two-some once again.
As you can see, 9 (ish) weeks later, Rosie is looking great! Still side by side with her surrogate mother. I was so fascinated by this story. It truly amazes me to see two completely different species not only being best buds, but literally accepting each other as family. Who says dogs and cats can't get along?
We here at Love Is Being Owned By A Husky would like to wish Rosie and Lilo the very best in life, and not to worry, there will be updates!! 
You can follow Rosie and Lilo's story via their Instagram page here.
