Rescued Pit Bull Gets His Own Adorable Kitten

A rescued pit bull named Bubba got his very own rescue animal, a pet kitten named Rue. Not many pets get to have a pet for themselves, but Bubba’s owner Becca knew he could handle it. By looking at it on social media, the two have a close bond, enjoying cuddling and playing together.

Despite the pitbulls’ aggressive reputation, they’re actually some of the most loving, friendly dogs you’ll come across. That’s been Becca’s experience with them as well because Bubba’s always looked out for his little sister.

“Like I knew he would be okay with her,” Becca says. “I knew he would never be aggressive with her; she was the size of my palm.”

Dogs have keen intuition and can sense when a smaller baby or animal is nearby. They act more gentle and protective around these fragile creatures as their instincts take over. Many people have preconceived notions about a rescued pit bull, as they often come from traumatic backgrounds. However, with a loving home and the right training, pit bulls will easily come out of their shell.

Becca says that Bubba’s been a blessing to have around, as he’s a very calm, laid-back dog. He’s about to turn eleven in December, while February marks Rue’s fifth birthday. Becca rescued Bubba when he was just three months old during her sophomore year of college. She can’t imagine her life without him now.

The rescued pit bull got his very own pet kitten, Rue.

Here’s how she describes him on her website: “Bubba has been the most mellow guy since the day I got him. He may be the best dog you’d ever meet. He’s grown up with puppies, kitties, big dogs, small dogs, cats, etc., so he’s the best role model to the little guys. He’s lived with 3 puppies throughout his life (roommates at the time), so he is used to playing gentle and teaching the little guys the ropes. He is the exact same with Rue and always has been!”

She rescued Rue as well, from all the way across the country in Brooklyn, New York. She wanted a kitten for the rescued pitbull because she thought a full-grown cat might have a harder time adjusting. It may seem counterintuitive since kittens are so small, but they’re not set in their ways like cats. If the kitten grows up with a big dog from the start, it won’t seem unfamiliar.

Here’s Rue’s story, also from the website:

“Rue is also the biggest (or littlest) snuggle bunny. When I first brought her home, she was so incredibly tiny; it was like having an infant around. You couldn’t take your eyes off of her, so it was helpful that Bubba was around to help out. If I’d walk away somewhere, he’d always follow me (he’s always been a mama’s boy).

“So when we added itty bitty Rue to the family, I would say, “go watch your sister,” and he would turn around and go watch where she was. If Rue weren’t snuggled close with bubba (99% of the time she was), she’d come and lay on my chest because the sound of my heartbeat reminded her of her birth mama. Kittens are the best.

“She follows bubba around everywhere and never grew out of her crazy toddler stage. She runs around like a nut, hops like a bunny, and is clumsy. She’s also incredibly affectionate. She gives so many kisses. It’s amazing. She’s always purring and making biscuits. I don’t know how I got so lucky with two perfect munchkins.”
If you’re not familiar with the term, “making biscuits” refers to the kneading motion cats make with their front paws. They do this when they feel comfortable with you and as a sign of affection. It’s quite adorable to watch, and it’s like getting a free massage from your kitten!

Becca’s very blessed to have her two furballs in her life. She says they’re everything to her and remain the priority in her life. For anyone considering fostering or adopting, she says to go for it! Hopefully, you’ll get just as lucky as she did in the pet department.
