Meet Bubba. He is a sweet Pitbull, that had been waiting to take care of a kitten. Rebecca Pizzello rescued Bubba from a shelter in Phoenix, Arizona, six years ago, when he was just 3 months old. At the same time, her roommate rescued kittens. “Since then, Bubba has had an endless affection for cats,” Pizzello told The Dodo.
“Like, literally obsessed. I always knew he’d love having one of his own, but I wanted to wait until we moved to New York City [from Los Angeles] this year.” After weeks, she got a call from a shelter, and adopted a kitten. “Rue stood out like no other and I took her home as fast as I could,” Pizzello said. “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.”
Bubba was immediately gentle with the baby. “Rue thinks Bubba is her mom and Bubba loves it,” she said. “He bathes her like a baby and snuggles close to her to make her comfortable.”
They’ve even got their own Instagram account, “Bubba Loves Rue.”
