This puppy was found protecting his kitten friend and did not let anyone approach them. The couple seeks a home together, Angela Ward was at the Hampton Soccer Park soccer field in Hampton, Virginia, and managed to see a pair of defenseless animals huddled in the grass between two portable toilets, it was a Chihuahua puppy that took care of a small kitten.
The woman with her daughter Madison and her friend Kristin Schultz decided to seek help and made a publication on the Nextdoor social network telling the situation and its location. That was how a few animal lovers responded to his call and rushed to the place.
When the rescuers arrived, the two-year-old Chihuahua didn’t want to get away from the kitten.
One of the rescuers posted on social networks: Fully united… the dog growls if we get too close, so we have notified animal control and are waiting for them. Three of us are pending at this time.
The dog was called Gomez and the cat was called Morticia. Both were taken to the veterinarian for medical attention. They were subsequently transferred to a local shelter and a photo of both was published in the Lost & Found Pets Facebook group of Hampton Roads, VA with the hope that their family would appear, but it was not.
They looked so scared in the picture. We tend to favor the scared because they simply do not understand when you are trying to help. Turkan could not stop thinking about this pair of friends, especially because in shelters, dogs and cats are separated.
This puppy refused to separate from his best friend
Turkan said: In most shelters, it is against politics to collect dogs and cats for security reasons and we knew they would be separated. Their difficult situation kept us awake at night worrying about how they were united with each other.
Turkan knew that they should remain united primarily for their psychological health, but he was also concerned that there could be no guarantee that a family would be interested in adopting them together.
Most shelters cannot make united couples adopt together. Fortunately, the shelter workers also did not want to separate Gomez and Morticia, so they decided to organize game appointments in a meeting room, and now they are in a foster home.
ran to the black host cats initially, thinking that one was Morticia and you could see her disappointment when she realized they weren’t her. Gomez is shy with people when he meets them, but takes confidence quickly. It really opens when Morticia is near. Both are happier and more open when they are together than when they meet people individually.
Once both are neutered and spayed they will be ready to find a permanent home that gives them all the love they deserve. If you wish to contact the shelter to keep abreast of the situation of Gomez and Morticia, you can click here.
