Heartmelting Photos of a Protective Bulldog with His Foster Kittens

About a week ago Michelle Parden (or Redditor RorschachBulldogs) showed some incredibly sweet photos of her bulldog Hammie being incredibly protective to a group of foster kittens. Born from a local stray cat, the kittens all ended up being adopted to loving homes, but for the limited time when Parden had them all in her house, she was able to capture Hammie the bulldog, acting lovingly like their mother hen.

In October, Parden’s friend posted on Facebook that she needed to find a foster home for a pregnant cat and her soon-to-be born kittens. The cat, named Mommy, was a stray found in Valparaiso, Nebraska. Even though the Parden family already had two bulldogs and a cat, they still eagerly volunteered.

On Halloween, the six orange kittens were born. Parden, with the help of her 7-year-old son Max gave them some truly awesome names – Pumpkin, Goblin, Frankenstein, Batman, Zombie and Elvira.

Parden slowly introduced the kittens to her dogs to try and socialize the cats. What she couldn’t expect was that soon after bulldog Hammie would plop himself right next to them, looking for a warm cuddle. "I swear he thought he was the mom," Parden said.
