Kittens and Their Canine Babysitters

London babysitting the kittens

Previously we met Sunshine the ginger cat mama who was rescued near an apartment complex and gave birth to 6 adorable kittens. Though she is trying her best to be a good mom, she is still a teenager and wants to have fun and time to herself. Her canine buddies London, Fenwick and Haku have stepped in to help, babysit all the kittens and provide the socialization they need to grow up into a healthy and happy kitty. Check out these wonderful photos of them together.

The six kittens are Isis (dilute torti), Brahma (light dilute), Budda (darker dilute), Dio (long hair orange), and Pax and Ra (short hair orange).
