Rosie the kitten, found and rescued on the brink of death, was nursed back to health by Lilo the Siberian husky, who took her on like a puppy of her own. The then-three-week-old feline and her surrogate mother bonded instantly, and after a week of tender and loving care, Rosie opened her eyes and began to walk on her own.
Rosie almost did not make it through the first night, even with round the clock care. She was lethargic and limp. Lilo’s owners decided to go out on a limb and let her cuddle extensively with Lilo. By some miracle, she started suckling on Lilo and Lilo went full ‘mom mode.’”
While animal surrogacy happens from time to time, we have to warn against trying to force it: Huskies are notorious for their intense prey drive!! So please please don’t run out and get a kitten (or a husky) expecting them to be best friends.

Did you know? Siberian Huskies may have eyes of different color. Brown and an icy blue are the typical colors of a Siberian Husky, but sometimes you get one of each! This is sometimes known as ‘parti-eye’ and is quite normal and acceptable for the breed. Check out the eyes on the husky picture here. Even more amazing is they are all born with blue eyes but can change colour after a few weeks! See our information on Siberian Husky eye color.
