The six years old rescued PitBull Buba has a special love for kittens. It all started when his human mother got him from a shelter in Phoenix, Arizona when he was just 3 months old. One of her roomates was taking care a litter of kittens, that’s when Buba fell a strong connection with them. Finally, after 6 years of waiting, Pizzello surprised her mellow pit with his very own kitten.
“I always knew he’d love having one of his own but I wanted to wait until we moved to NYC this year,” Pizzello told Bored Panda. She got the tiny ginger kitten from a shelter, too. “The fact that Bubba and Rue have identical coloring still blows my mind…I knew Bubba would be filled with joy the second we walked in the door and boy was I right.”
Shortly after the kitten was brought to her new forever home, she fell asleep on her buddy Buba! “I think Rue thinks Bubba is her mom and Bubba loves it,” Pizzello added. “He bathes her like a baby and snuggles close to her to make her comfortable. They will definitely be a fun duo to watch grow up together!”
