Dog Falls In Love With Homeless Kitten With Thumbs


Life started out rough for a misfit kitten that was born with huge ‘thumbs’ on his paws. The tiny kitty was brought to an emergency veterinary hospital in need of care and love. One of the workers at the hospital decided to adopt the cat. This sounds like an ordinary story, but what happened next is the stuff that makes the Internet happy.

Named Skywalker, likely after the character in ‘Star Wars,’ the kitten was a mere three weeks old, weighing under a pound, when his journey began. The man’s wife, Kim Downie, noticed something very special about the tiny feline right away.

Skywalker and their Golden Retriever, Mojito, became BFFs the moment they laid eyes on each other. Mojito gave the kitty licks and the kitty loved cuddling with his new dog bestie.

Of course, Mojito acted sort of like a parental figure to Skywalker. He would clean him and they would take naps together. Mojito even showed him his first bird!

Downie told LoveMeow, “I do think sometimes he thinks she’s his mommy. Mojito is very loving. She’s a therapy dog and absolutely loves doing her visits. Skywalker is just super goofy.”

Best of all, Mojito doesn’t judge his kitty pal for his big thumbs. The two have captured hearts across the Internet, and when you watch this video, you’ll see why. Best fur-friends forever!
