Labrador Steps In When A Helpless Kitten Has Nobody To Count On
If the week has been hard and long and you need something wonderful in your life, keep reading because this is the kind of story the internet was invented for. A beautiful friendship is blooming at the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home in England, and we're so here for it.
When an adorable kitten named Ava was abandoned in a garden in London, the staff at Battersea weren't the only ones who stepped up to help: A Labrador named Barney took on the job of foster parent to the helpless kitten.
Barney was dropped off at the shelter in 2014 after his family realized they weren't equipped to care for him and he was adopted by Rachel Ab'dee, the head nurse at the shelter, Metro reports.
As soon as Ava arrived at Battersea, Barney took her under his wing (and into his bed — awww) to care for her.
"Barney adores Ava and can't wait to come into Battersea every morning so he can see her," Rachel explained.
