Little Ichimi was the runt of the litter and consequentially was rejected by her mother.

We know this happens often and there is little or nothing we can do to stop this.

Then along came Ponzu, a lovely golden retriever with a big heart.

He has fostered little kittens before and after losing his previous foster kitty that sadly passed, his owner realised that Ichimi would help mend his broken heart.

Ponzu has a very nurturing character and would use his body heat to keep her warm, clean her and also helped his owner with feeding.

This unlikely couple instantly bonded and Ponzu is very protective towards Ichimi, not letting her out of his sight and keeping her out of harms way.

The two play together all the time, and Ponzu even cleans and sleeps together with Ichimi.

He is now the loving father she never had.
