We rescued Tia Maria (right) from a factory when she was barely weaned. Our older cat, Sushi, took her under her wing and completely mothered her, even though Sushi is spayed and has never had any babies. Two and a half years later, they still sleep, play and groom together. It's difficult to see in these photos, but the tabby patch on Sushi's side forms a heart :)
I work at a vet clinic. This little cutie was brought in yesterday after she was found abandoned. She was so unhappy! She yelled and yelled and yelled, until we gave her a little stuffed giraffee that a kiddo had left with us. She snuggled up and fell straight asleep!
