    Abandoned Kitten And Puppy Become Best Friends Despite All Odds

    Chip and Adele found themselves at Operation Kindness, a no-kill shelter in Texas. Now they're just waiting to get adopted together.

    Here's Chip, a five-week-old chihuahua puppy.

    His owners surrendered him to the shelter because they "could not care for such a young puppy," said Natalie Buxton, the foster mom to the two little snugglers.

    This is Adele, a four-week-old kitten, a stray found alone without any other family or her mother.

    Both came to the shelter on Friday, March 20, so the team decided to pair them together. "They instantly bonded and became sweet friends," said Buxton.

    SWEET FRIENDS, INDEED. Chip is "sweet and laid-back," while Adele just loves to climb everything.

    The pair will be fostered together for about five weeks until they get all their shots and are old enough to be spayed and neutered.

    The two are lucky shelters like Operation Kindness, and its foster volunteers, exist.

    "A puppy and kitten that age are much, much too young to be in an animal shelter," said Buxton. "Without a foster home, they wouldn't have had a chance."

    And because they already do everything together, like munch...

    They even got their portraits taken by a photographer who donated her services to the shelter, in hopes of getting pets adopted more quickly.

    These two will hopefully be brought to a new, loving home without any trouble.

    Besides, it seems they've already learned a very important life lesson...

    "There's nothing sweeter than friendship!"
