Golden Retriever Adopts Stray Cat

Honey/PreciousNeed your feel good moment of the day?

It’s always heartwarming to hear when animals look out for each other. And that’s what Honey, a golden retriever, did for a kitten named Precious.

Six weeks ago, Jimmy Martin found Precious when she ran in front of his concrete truck. Martin did not see a mother cat anywhere. When he picked up the abandoned kitten, his heart simply melted because the kitten reminded him of a cat he once had.

Martin took her home to try to nurse her back to health, but she refused to feed from the bottle. The family was worried about the kitten’s health and was unsure of what to do.

But then Honey came into the picture. At first, the family tried to keep Honey away from Precious because they were afraid that Honey would be too excited and rough around the little kitten.

Finally, the family allowed Honey to approach Precious, and they were completely surprised when the golden retriever was calm around the kitten. She started to lick and kiss Precious, and after a few days, Honey began to lactate and started nursing Precious.

This once stray kitten is now a beloved part of the Martin family, thanks to Honey. In fact, Precious even sometimes thinks she’s a dog because she occasionally plays with dog bones and will gnaw on Honey’s arm just like a puppy.

    Now pay attention, all you dog-fighters. Jimmy Martin is a REAL man and any woman/child would be lucky to have him for a husband/father.

    A wonderful story! We suspect our lit’ mutt was raised with cats previously. He only wants to play with cats AND at times he acts like one
