When Lisa Revella Morabito, Director of Operations for Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter, brought home a foster kitten named Matilda, she wanted to make sure the stray was socialized before trying to find her a permanent home. When Matilda was introduced to Morabito’s collection of dogs, however, the adorable kitten seemed to believe that it, too, was one.
Matilda fit right into the huge litter of animals at Morabito’s home, and as the animal lover explains, she seems to have taken a big liking to the pit bulls.
"Her cuddling with all of the animals is adorable,” said Morabito. “Matilda usually runs around in the morning and plays with Fiona [a nine-month-old cat] because the dogs sleep in as late as we'll let them. Once the afternoon hits and the dogs have been fed and walked, they retreat for more napping and Matilda joins them then for cuddling."
Matilda appears to believe she is a pit bull herself now, as Morabito says she even attempts to feed off one of the dogs.
"She tries to nurse off of Spike," says Morabito, "which is funny since he's our only male dog."
Morabito says that even though Matilda is adorable and gets along well with the other animals, they are looking to find a permanent home for her.
"My husband is not a cat person and I had to basically promise my life away that we will not keep another after Fiona," said Morabito. "It's also kitten season here. Today alone we got in 21 kittens under 10 weeks so I do want to get her adopted so that I can take another."
Let’s hope whomever decides to adopt Matilda has plenty of other pets and is armed with a camera so they can capture the cuteness.
