Cat And Dog Abandoned:
A cat and a dog were dropped off outside of Stephanie Rodriguez’s apartment. She said that her neighbor had fallen upon hard times, which was why she had abandoned her cat and dog. She could no longer take care of her pets.
Stephanie recalled that the animals’ owner was set about her cat and dog sticking together because they are two bonded animals. Stephanie knew that the cat, Tip, and the dog, Ladybug, were both uprooted from their lives, and separating them would only cause further trauma.
What could be better than adopting a bonded dog and cat? ❤️

Respecting her neighbor’s wishes, Stephanie didn’t separate them, instead, she decided to foster the two animals together.
The woman recalled that when Tip and Ladybug first got into her home, Tip was really scared. Stephanie shared that Tip immediately jumped out of the carrier and hid under her bed.
Ladybug Loves Belly Rubs:
Stephanie said that Ladybug was a little nervous, but she was very welcoming and accepted all the affection she given. Ladybug even laid on her back for belly rubs, Stephanie recalled.
Tip The Cat Comes Out Of Hiding:
Tip, the cat, eventually came out of her shell on her terms and started roaming around the house. However, she was still refusing to play with Ladybug, and she always hissed at the dog.
Stephanie reassured Ladybug that Tip would play with her when she is ready. Stephanie shared that Tip eventually became more willing to receive neck scratches, and started going near Ladybug after almost two months of fostering them.
Looking For The Perfect Family:
Stephanie admitted she wanted to adopt Ladybug and Tip together, but she couldn’t because her dog is not that fond of cats. Stephanie then shared that while the two animals still have not found the perfect family willing to take them in together, she would foster them for as long as possible till that family was found.
