A Broken Hearted Dog Now Fosters Kittens!

Dogs and cats have always faced the stereotypical challenge of them never being able to get along. But for Flora, a 100-lb. malamute, and her best friend Dexter, a 20 year old cat, it could have been further away. The two shared an incredible bond. One that is everlasting.  So when Dexter sadly pasted, Flora was devastated. And nothing is worse than seeing your beloved pet, sad. So her owners did what thought necessary to turn her frown, upside down. The best medicine was a handful of kittens.

    After the passing of her special cat, it left quit a void in Flora's life. Even though they came from two very different worlds (and different species), Flora had closely bonded with the senior kitty her family, that the Williamses had adopted from Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah, only two years prior.

    To help ease her sweet dog's grief, Jill Williams quickly adopted two young cats, hoping they'd distract Flora. However, this plan did not pan out. The cats didn't want to cuddle with her, and Flora was still down in the dumps. That's when the Williams family decided to try another approach, this time fostering a litter of four kittens in early August.

    Not only was fostering the baby cats a good experience for the Williams children, it was just what the doctor ordered for Flora, too!

     The Williamses took two days to make their home comfy for the kittens, and once they were settled in, they introduced the dog to her new, petite and fluffy friends.

    Flora perked right up when she saw the purring bunch. Jill Williams said that the kittens were unfazed by the large dog. Kittens, not like young cats or cats don't really have much experience with dogs, so they don't know what to expect. Although a large dog can be a bit nerve wrecking to the small kittens.

    Jill said, "Iggy was the first brave boy. He went right up to Flora and sniffed her nose. She gently brought her face down to meet his and got a huge smile on her face." And surely and slowly the rest of the kittens tagged along after their brother. Iggy's sister Glamour was next up. "Glamour climbed up Flora's side, sniffing her ears and eyes. Flora just laid there with a big, squinty smile on her face. It was so cute," Williams said. "I truly think Flora is the kitten whisperer." Is there anything better than seeing the smile on you pets face after a heartbreak?

    However, like we said before these kittens are only being fostered. They are now up for adoption and will eventually move on to new homes. But, not to worry, the Williams say Flora won't be left with a void again. They are already in the process of preparing to foster a new litter of kittens so that their loving dog's nature and unique kitten whispering skills won't go unused for too long.
