Heartbreaking! Cat Stays by the Side of a Dying Dog Who Adopted Him When He Was Just a Kitten

Abbey Road is a golden retriever whose heart is big and loving.

When she first saw Bubba, then just a kitten, motherless and alone, the dog quickly adopted him as her own.

Together, they spent many joyful moments with Bubba believing that Abbey is his real mom.

How time flies, and Bubba grew up happy and healthy as Abbey dreamed of.

But, for Abbey, the time has grown short. At the age of fourteen, her health deteriorated, and one evening she found she must say goodbye to her beloved family.

It was heartbreaking for Abbey’s human family. Everyone who has ever loved a pet knows the anguish we all go through after such a loss. And we know that not even time can completely heal our hearts, what it does is simply soften the grief.

A pet owner shared a piece of loving advice: “So sorry for your family and for him especially. He will really mourn… mine did for days. Just gave a lot of extra love and care🥰🥰🥰”
