A tiny orphaned kitten was taken into a cat sanctuary for a second chance at life. That’s where she met a dog, who was mourning the loss of her puppies.
She walked up to the canine and started to snuggle.
Mohammad Alaa Jaleel who founded Il Gattaro d’Aleppo (The Cat Man of Aleppo), provides a refuge for cats that have been left behind because of war in Syria.
He came across a street dog named Amira, and began to care for her the best he could. When they discovered that she was pregnant, Alaa gave up his room so she could have a comfortable place to rest.
Since they have 80 feline residents, to keep every animal comfortable, Alaa built a little house for the dog next to the sanctuary.
A couple weeks ago, Amira went into labor, but sadly, all three puppies were stillborn. It left her broken hearted. “We were sad and shocked… We gave her a stuffed teddy bear and tried to cuddle with her because she was very sad,” Alessandra Abidin, volunteer of the rescue group, told Love Meow.
