Bubba the Pit Bull developed a love for cats since he was three months old.
It all started when Rebecca Pizzello adopted Bubba from a shelter in Phoenix, Arizona, and introduced him to her roommate who was caring for a litter of kittens.
His undeniable affinity with cats led Rebecca to adopt Rue, a ginger cat, to keep him company six years later.
“I always knew he’d love having [a cat] of his own but I wanted to wait until we moved to NYC this year,” Rebecca told Bored Panda.
“The fact that Bubba and Rue have identical coloring still blows my mind…I knew Bubba would be filled with joy the second we walked in the door and boy was I right.”
It seems Rue is equally in love with Bubba the moment they met – falling asleep on him a few hours later.
“I think Rue thinks Bubba is her mom and Bubba loves it,” shares Rebecca.
“He bathes her like a baby and snuggles close to her to make her comfortable. They will definitely be a fun duo to watch grow up together!”
