Homer's Heroes come in all shapes and sizes—and sometimes they're big-hearted mama cats ready to welcome a tiny, orphaned puppy in need, loving him right along with her own kittens.
When a puppy named Charlie—only a few days old—landed in California City's Wrenn Rescues with an injured leg and little hope, rescuers knew immediately that, along with the medical attention he received from Oaks Veterinary Urgent Care, he'd need lots of love if he was going to survive. Salvation came in the form of Jenifer Hurt, an experienced kitten foster. And Hurt received some unexpected help from a mama calico cat who was rescued only a few days later.Rescuers decided to put the mama cat and her litter of six wee, newborn kittens together with Charlie, to see if she would accept him. It was love at first sight—the cat mom started licking her new canine baby, immediately loving him as if he were her own. She wrapped her arms around him as he fell asleep on her. "She is such a good mom. She accepted him right away." Jenifer reports to Love Meow. Although Charlie still has a ways to go, having a feline foster mom to love and cherish him is helping him grow quickly and improve in health.A few days ago, he finally opened his eyes and saw his new mom's face for the first time!
