An orphaned puppy and abandoned kitten who were put together at a rescue centre have become so close - they think they are sisters.
Kitty the cat was brought into Battersea Cats and Dogs Home by a kind-hearted member of the public who found her alone in a garden when she was just one day old.
To keep her company she was put together with Buttons the Jack Russell, who was born at the centre but rejected by her mother as the runt of the litter.
But she was the runt of the litter and staff have had to hand-rear her after being rejected by her mother and was at risk of being killed by her seven brothers and sisters.
Kitty and Buttons were put together when they were about two weeks old and treat each other like siblings.
Staff at the animal home are hoping someone has enough room to adopt the loveable pair, who are now both around four weeks old.
Nurse Sascha added: 'Hand-rearing them is hard work - I have to feed them every two hours, even throughout the night - but it’s totally worth it.
'We’re not sure if they’ll be re-homed together, though it would be great if they did.'
