14. Happy Dog
“I wondered how she’d do around cats I had at the time, so I took her into the shelter’s cattery to see what would happen. Zuca walked up to the cats and wagged her tail. Right then, I decided to adopt her”, said Ronda. And she made the best decision ever! Here’s why…
13. New Home
Without giving it any second thought, Ronda took Zuca to her home and the most amazing thing happened right from the moment that Zuca stepped through the doors of her new home.
12. New Best Friend
Zuca instantly bonded with one of Ronda’s kittens. The kitten’s name was Stout and she was very special. This was amazing to see and Ronda knew she made the right decision by taking Zuca in.
11. Goofing Around
Zuca and her new best friend loved to goof around. Not only that, but the two animals had lots of fun together. Sadly, things took a sudden turn when Stout got ill.
10. Stout Is Ill
A couple of years have passed since Zuca and Stout became friends and sadly, Stout became ill. The cat was 17 years old and her chances of survival were very low. What happened next will shock you!
9. Stout Passes Away
Unfortunately, Stout didn’t get well and she passed away. This broke Ronda’s heart and Zuca was never the same.
8. Acting Strange
Ronda says that Zuca started acting really strange after Stout passed away. Although, who could blame Zuca for being sad when her best friend was no longer with her?
7. Tiny Kittens
A couple of months passed since Stout passed away and Ronda started volunteering at an animal rescue center. Ronda also volunteered to take in little kittens that needed a home. Guess hoe the pooch reacted to all of these kittens!
One of those little kittens was called Monkey and to everyone’s surprise, Monkey managed to bring a smile on Zuca’s face! You won’t believe what Ronda had to say about Zuca and Monkey’s first meeting.
5. Meeting For The First Time
“Monkey jumped on Zuca and tried to nurse on her, and they were soon curled up together like best friends. Zuca weighs 50 pounds, but she was very careful around Monkey and was always patient and gentle. I knew right then that she had a gift”, said Ronda. And that’s not all!
4. Surrogate Mother
It seems like Monkey somehow managed to bring Zuca in better spirits. Not only that, but Monkey also helped the pooch remember how much she loves little kittens because the dog started acting like a surrogate mother for other cats. The next photo is amazing!
3. Loving Dog
Even though a pit bull might be an unlikely surrogate mother for kittens, Zuca was doing a great job! The kittens were happy to have someone care for them while Zuca was more than happy to help.
2. Zuca Is A Caring Surrogate Mother
Ronda says that one of the most amazing things about watching Zuca spend time with cats is the way she acts with them. Zuca seems to know which cats are more feral and which are not and adjusts her behavior according to that.
Who would’ve thought that a pit bull could be so in love with kittens? While dogs and cats are known as natural enemies, Zuca and her friends sure make an exception to that rule!
