I had rescued a kitten that was only a few weeks old when my Golden, AnnaBelle was about 1. I kept the kitten in a cat carrier, except to feed it, because AnnaBelle was very curious and I was afraid she would unintentionally harm it. After a few days, I left the kitten on the floor to learn to walk and move around. AnnaBelle came running over and started to lick the kitten. From that point on, AnnaBelle had to be with the kitten at all times to clean it off and lick it's rear end to teach it to go to the bathroom. When the kitten left to go to its forever home, I had AnnaBelle in a seperate room. I left her out and she went straight to the spot where I had the cat carrier and looked sadly at me because her "baby" was not there. It was heart-breaking!
Looking back, I wish I would have kept the kitten because of the bond they had but I had already promised her to a loving family that had so badly wanted a kitten to love.
