Fantastic Friday - Cat as Dog!

I’ve been following this adorable family on Youtube for almost 2 years now, and I think their owners – 3 amazing sisters – are beyond fabulous!

The sisters – Thoa, Thi and Tram Bui – live in California, and own 2 of the huskies, Lilo and Infinity, who are sisters; their cousins, who live close by, own the huskies' brother, Miko. The Buis also foster orphaned/abandoned kitties, juggling around the clock bottle feeding with school and work!

The sisters found little Rosie on the street when she was just 3 weeks old, “malnourished, lethargic and dying”. Deciding to take a chance, they put Rosie with Lilo who immediately took to caring for the little one.

Even though Rosie started drinking from a bottle, she also tried to suckle on Lilo. That was the start of their mother-daughter relationship, with Rosie looking to Lilo for guidance and mimicking everything her ‘mother’ did. As Lilo is leader of the husky pack, when Rosie was gradually introduced to Infinity and Miko, they accepted Rosie as a pack member without any fuss or bother.

The family live an active outdoor life, so the sisters trained Rosie to be, what they call, an ‘adventure cat’. They introduced her to wearing a body harness and walking on a leash, which, as far as I’m concerned, is the most adorable sight! Rosie seems to think nothing of going hiking with the huskies, and she doesn’t appear to be afraid of water either.

I’m so glad the sisters love taking photos and videos of their unusual pack and sharing them on Youtube. Watch to the end of this particular video - Rosie, when she's tired, is way too cute!

I just want to make it clear that the photos featured here are the property of the Bui sisters, along with the video.
