Saturday Surprise — Mojito and Skywalker!

Good Saturday morning and welcome to the …

weekend

I have something for you today that is guaranteed to melt your heart!  My friend Herb sent me this a few days ago, as he knows of my love for critters …

Meet Skywalker, a tiny polydactyl kitten with an extra digit resembling a thumb.  Skywalker was taken to the veterinary hospital when he was just three weeks old and weighed less than a pound.Kim Dowie, whose husband used to work at the vet center, got the kitten home and their pet dog – Mojito, a Golden Retriever started giving him all the love.kitten with thumbs found love in giant dog

He would shower kisses on Skywalker and they would cuddle for a long time! Mojito doubled up as the mother of the kitten, cleaning him, snuggling with him and ensuring that we would never be alone at any point of time.

When Bird TV covered the wonderful relation between Skywalker and Mojito, it went viral!kitten with thumbs found love in giant dog

Before they met, Mojito bonded with another cat named Vader. She would follow the kitty around the house until Vader caved in and let her bathe and love him.

Now Mojito is thrilled to have Skywalker to be her new constant cuddly friend.

    • I’m so glad you liked them! I fell in love with them when I saw the first picture! A brief respite from the political chaos of the day, but a respite nonetheless. Stress free and relaxing did you say??? You’re kidding, right? Just over a week ’til Christmas is not gonna lend itself to ‘stress free’ or ‘relaxing’! And if I could just find a little bit of holiday spirit, I wouldn’t mind so much, but as it is, I just want it to be over. Sigh. Love ‘n hugs to you, soul sister! ❤ ❤ ❤
