Pit Bulls have gotten a bad reputation for being vicious, aggressive dogs, which is tragic considering they are gentle, nurturing animals who, we can say from personal experience, are excellent at snuggling. One of these gentle giants, Bubba, has an especially soft spot for friends of the feline variety. Rebecca, Bubba’s mother, brought her home at three months. Rebecca’s roommate at the time was fostering a litter of kittens and Bubba was immediately smitten. Finally, at age six, Rebecca surprised Bubba with a new addition to the family.

This is Rue, Bubba’s new kitten.

For Bubba – it was love at first sight.

Rue was quite taken by her new friend as well.

Rebecca remarked: “The fact that Bubba and Rue have identical coloring still blows my mind…I knew Bubba would be filled with joy the second we walked in the door.”

And she was 100 percent correct.

Rue and Bubba are inseparable. They even got ready for trick-or-treaters together.

But mostly they just like to cuddle.
