Bubba the pit bull LOVES his new companion. You only need to view these adorable photos to be convinced of that.
Bubba, the ginger-colored pit bull in the photos, has always loved cats. Such was made evident shortly after his human caretaker, Rebecca Pizello, rescued him from a shelter in Phoenix, Arizona.
Though he was only three months old when he was adopted, the pup ‘clicked’ right away with the litter of kittens her roommate was looking after. It was then that Pizzello knew she’d eventually need to take in a cat to keep Bubba company.
For years, Rebecca has been keeping an eye out for the right feline friend to adopt, reports The Dodo. Only recently, however, was an orange tabby kitten named Rue was welcomed into their home.
After weeks of applying for a rescue cat, the animal lover finally received a call from Brooklyn Animal Action and learned that a baby kitten in need would be ready in a week for a forever home. The rest was history.
“I always knew he’d love having one of his own but I wanted to wait until we moved to NYC this year. The fact that Bubba and Rue have identical coloring still blows my mind…I knew Bubba would be filled with joy the second we walked in the door and boy was I right.”
Only hours after being welcomed into her new home, kitten Rue fell asleep on Bubba.
“I think Rue thinks Bubba is her mom and Bubba loves it,” Pizzello added. “He bathes her like a baby and snuggles close to her to make her comfortable. They will definitely be a fun duo to watch grow up together!”
The pictures convey just how tenderly Bubba treats Rue, as well as the budding affection they both share.
“Rue stood out like no other and I took her home as fast as I could.”
Pizzello said their connection was instant and now the two of them are inseparable.
