Lilo, is one of three huskies owned by Thoa Bui, her sister and her cousins.
She’s the leader of the pack, and served as a substitute mother to Rosie the cat.
Bui said that she and her sisters found Rosie at only 3 weeks old, and she was “malnourished, sluggish and dying.”
“We took a gamble and put her with Lilo, and Lilo really saved her life,” Bui said. “Lilo never left Rosie’s side for hours. She embraced her and reassured her until she was better and ready to finally drink from a bottle.”
Rosie finally started trying to “suckle” on Lilo, and that was the beginning of their “mother-daughter relationship.” Since Lilo was her ‘mother’, Rosie began to mimic everything she did.
“When she saw Lilo and the dogs went outside to potty, she started doing the same thing,” Bui said. “When they were leashed to go on walks, Rosie sought to be leashed and to come along too.”
Bui, her sisters and cousins slowly presented Rosie to Lilo’s sister Infinity and their brother Miko. And that went very fine, too.
The four pets eat together, drink from the same bowls, play together, go on walks together and even sleep together, Bui said. They’re a real family. Occasionally they even have friends over for lunch!
“Rosie is now a part of the pack,” Bui said. “Since Lilo is their front-runner, Infinity and Miko just accepted her, and now they’re all worthy friends.”
Rosie has also taken on a lot of the behaviours of a Husky. For example, she loves going on hikes, and she’s “fearless,” according to Bui, who said the cat isn’t scared of water, as you can see.
“We go on a lot of road trips, and we recently took Rosie kayaking and paddle-boating with us,” Bui said. “She’s not scared at all, and as long as Lilo is there, she knows everything is going to be OK.”
Bui told us that she and her sisters love taking photos and recording the camera-friendly pack. And it’s surely beautiful to see.
Take a look at the rest of the gorgeous pictures.
The sweetest cat ever.
Just like the rest of the family.
The only thing Rosie hasn’t learnt is breathing with her mouth open!
