Rescued Pit Bull Adopts Motherless Kittens


Meet Hema the rescue cavity policeman who is preoccupied with promoting kittens.” All she just wanted do is lick and snuffle them,” dog’s proprietor Marissa Clingen told The Dodo.” Who would have supposed a stray D.C. pit policeman with scars on her face would be a good kitten mother ?” It all started a few years ago when Hema landed in the Humane Rescue Alliance Washington, D.C.” She was observed as a stray but had many, many bite wounds,” the shelter’s spokesman Alix Tolley tells The Dodo. Considering that the pooch had such a rough start in life, she was still a very caring doggie. Maybe that’s why when Clingen swayed by the shelter one day, she immediately fell in love with Hema and took her home as soon as she could. Clingen volunteers as a kitten promote, but she was still surprised to see Hema get so deep into the role of a mom.” It truly brings tears to my eyes,” says Tolley.” The fact that she can still be so loving to those kittens shows the resilience of these animals .” So far, Hema has promoted more than 20 kitties over the period of three years- and the kitten-obsessed cavity bull is enjoying every minute of it.
