If this isn’t the cutest thing you’ve ever seen, I don’t know what is.
For recap, we brought Archimedes, the baby, home just a few days ago and Gandalf, after an initial reaction of concern, immediately adopted him. She grooms him, follows him around, makes sure he eats first, and even carries him by the scruff of his neck if she thinks he’s in any danger (normally from the feral rescue who is a little meanie at times). We even took her to the vet with us when we were having Archimedes checked up. Every time he’d cry, Gandalf would jump out of her crate to make sure the vet was taking good care of him. The vets just ADORED her. She’s a really good adoptive mama (and due to being spayed, she’ll never be a real mama, so this is awesome).
We were worried it might take awhile to have them bond… apparently, it just took a few hours.
