Esperanza is a very generous dog whose sad past led her to perform the most beautiful act of love by adopting some helpless and homeless kittens.
The loving mother had a very difficult start in this world, but after losing her babies, she decided to adopt a litter of orphaned kittens.
This dog is an example of the strength of the maternal instinct.
Esperanza is from Playa del Carmen (Mexico) and with only one year of life had already seen the worst side of life on the street.
When rescued by volunteers from the local shelter, Coco’s Animal Welfare, these people realized that the furry one had recently given birth, but there was no way to find her pups.
The future of the cubs is uncertain, they have not been able to locate them.
With this background, rescuers were not surprised by the sadness the dog showed during her first few days at the shelter.
Although they tried to cheer her up and convince her that from now on her life would be better, there was no way to lift her spirits. It seemed as if the hairy man had given everything up for lost.
But his spirit changed when orphaned kittens arrived on the scene.
Almost at the same time as the dog arrived, three cats only a few days old were also welcomed, and the bond that was established between them was unexpected for everyone.
It turned out that Esperanza found in the little ones the recipients of all the maternal love that she carried with her and had unfortunately been unable to give to the little ones.
The arrival of the canine in the kittens’ lives was also a blessing.
Without their mother giving them milk, it was difficult for them to progress, due to their weakness and the short time of delivery. So when the dog approached them and showed intention to nurse them, the rescuers decided not to raise any objections.
Yes! Curiously, Esperanza took care of breastfeeding them
The volunteers decided to give the dog and her new children enough space to get to know each other and feel comfortable.
The puppy one was grateful for this, because what she wanted most was to take care of them and feed them like her own little ones. From then on began the new mom’s routine that consisted of eating, resting, and caring for the litter.
This is indeed an interspecies family.
After two weeks of caring for the cats, Esperanza met who would become her new human family. The good news is that these people agreed to take her home with their foster babies.
If it’s unusual for someone to rescue a whole family, it’s more curious if they were of different species.
American Evi Pover was on a summer island vacation when, due to fate, she met Esperanza and her only children.
“We were on vacation in Playa del Carmen and three days later we decided to take care of kittens at Coco’s Animal Welfare. As we were leaving, they asked us if we would like to see a puppy who was nursing a litter of kittens. There was an instant bond between Esperanza and my son, so we decided to adopt her,” Evi said.
The dog nursed the kittens for a few weeks before they moved to the United States. It was Evi who decided to name her Esperanza for the role the furry dog played in the kittens’ lives.
Dan, the woman’s son, had an immediate bond with the dog and now they are a beautiful family.
Esperanza got the home she so richly deserved.
“When he came to us, he didn’t know what dog food or toys were. We had to teach him. Now she values her toys and loves to play. She has been a blessing. She is a very special little girl.”
Helplessness brought these animals together, but love made them inseparable; no doubt the human being has a lot to learn from these creatures.
