When a three-week-old kitten was found in critical condition by animal-loving humans, they took her into their home to nurse her back to health. They weren’t sure if she would make it through the night, as she remained “lethargic and limp” despite constant care. Then, they enlisted the help of maternal husky named Lilo.

” [We] decided to go out on a limb and let her cuddle extensively with Lilo. By some miracle, she started suckling on Lilo and Lilo went into full ‘mom mode,'” said this post from the @lilothehusky Instagram page.

 They named the kitten Rosie. After a week of care and cuddles from foster mom Lilo, she felt well enough to explore her surroundings.    

And it wasn’t long before she could join her friends to play in the park!

And tagging along on all their adventures!


Talk about a perfect pack! As the @Lilothehusky Instagram says, the four friends are “Different by chance, friends by choice.”
