Jackson County, Michigan – Earlier this week, the Jackson County Animal Shelter made a heartbreaking announcement to its Facebook followers. According to the animal welfare agency, the kitten adopted by a shelter dog named Kela has passed away.

The agency said:

It’s with a heavy heart today that we let you know Kela’s adopted kitty has passed away.

Shelter staff believes that the kitten had a genetic problem that caused his death, but they expressed gratitude that he was perfectly loved until his last breath, writing:

We are comforted to know that he was always warm, always had a full belly and was completely content for the short time we were lucky enough to have him. Kela loved and cared for him as if he were her own and we couldn’t have asked for a better caregiver.

We are grateful to have had the chance to share their special story with you, even though we all hoped the story would not have ended so soon.

From our hearts to yours ❤️

That’s the thing with kittens- they can suddenly go downhill very fast with little warning It’s sad and I am sure Kela the adoptive dog feels the loss more than the humans but at least the little kitten had a loving home at the end.
