Tang began whimpering and laid down next to her ❤️
Zach Hearn believed his family was total, however his two dogs, Tang and Cream, knew much better. While out on a walk previously this month, the pups stumbled across a little animal crying out for help and hurried to the rescue.
” Tang and Cream suddenly stopped and looked puzzled,” Hearn informed The Dodo. “You can listen to a meow a little bit away, so both went running up to investigate.”
Hearn could not see where the noise was coming from, however both dogs managed to seek a small kitten, approximately 3 to 4 weeks old, lying in the center of the street
The little kitty was dirty and skinny, without mom visible. Hearn was stressed that his golden retriever and King Charles cavalier could go after the kitty, but the puppies knew just what to do.
Hearn was surprised when both dogs began comforting the scared little calico. “Tang began weeping and laid down next to her,” Hearn said. “Cream began licking her and cleaning her.”
Hearn recognized he couldn’t leave the kitten alone on the road, so he picked her up and carried her home, where he and his girlfriend made the kitten a comfortable location to rest and gave her a much-needed bathroom and some food. It was clear the kitty had been on her very own for a long time, however soon her strength returned.
“We decided to name the kitten 头奖 (Tou Jiang), meaning jackpot,” Hearn said. “At first, she didn’t have much energy and she slept a lot. But after she was fed on a regular basis and had a warm place to sleep, she livened up.”
From the moment the dogs found Tou Jiang, they fell in love. The dogs never leave her side and are always there to give her what she needs — whether it’s comfort, cuddling, a tongue bath or playtime.
“Tang is more of the stand-back, relaxed mom,” Hearn said. “The cat will climb on her and play with her tail, and Tang just lays there. She will intervene if the kitten is about to do something.”
“Cream is totally different,” he added. “She does more hovering and is always next to her, playing together and licks her clean like her real mom would. They’re pretty good at taking turns, but they’re [always] watching her unless she is put in her bed to sleep.”
Introducing a kitten into the family has taken some getting used to, but the love and excitement that Tou Jiang brings her adoptive dog parents is priceless.
