An unexpected, yet adorable, pair is making news out of the Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) — a puppy and a kitten with harrowing tales have become fast friends.

Quill, a 3-month-old puppy, came to the shelter suffering from a severe jaw injury inflicted by another dog. He was in extreme pain and unable to close his mouth fully, according to Newsweek. The puppy went through significant treatment, including surgery and multiple procedures.

But Quill’s recovery was not a lonely affair when Fritter, a 2-month-old kitten, soon arrived at the shelter. Fritter was living on the street and came in with a serious eye injury. His eye protruding from the socket, KHS quickly operated on Fritter to remove the infected eye.

When the two recovering animals met, they developed an instant bond.

Quill and Fritter are always seen snuggling up with one another, playing together, and eating from the same bowl.

“It’s clear that these two are happiest together, even trying to share their food,” Andrea Mattingly from the KHS told Newsweek.

Their inseparable bond has touched the hearts of everyone at KHS. The two will soon be ready for adoption and will be kept together so they can live side-by-side in the same home.

Along with Fritter and Quill, there are countless numbers of loving animals in need of adoption at reputable shelters and rescues all over the United States. We encourage everyone to adopt, never shop, for a companion animal to join your family.
