Being a foster animal is not bad at all, especially when you have a lovely mom like heroes from our story. This is the way how one can show love and tenderness, despite the fact some rights are not given by birth.
Suzie the Boxer
This is Suzie, a cute puppy boxer that changed lives of many other animals. Or, at least she was a cute puppy, as now she is a grown dog of seven years. But, it is not bad to see how she looked when she was small, don't you agree?

From the moment you see these kind looking eyes, you will realize why everyone loves this fantastic dog. It is not hard to notice how gentle and hearty she is because eyes are the mirror of our soul. Yes, the comparison is right. Nevertheless, we are talking about animals here.

The picture on which you can see many cute little cats and a dog, on the same rug, having a nap together, might be a bit strange. It would be more natural to imagine one big cat with them, but it is not always like we think is right.

Her Favorite Friends
Like other dogs, Suzie has her favorite toy, favorite bone, and the best friend. During all years of her life, she was surrounded by foster kittens, and this is how she gets used to having them nearby. For all those cute animals, she was behaving like they are her puppies.

Kelly Hartman is a foster for different kittens, and she takes care of them until the time they are ready to go to some shelter. She is Suzie's mom and for many years was bringing animals to their home. This is how the dog became the first babysitter in the house, the one that always has an eye on them while they are playing.

What a Big Paw
Sometimes, a big paw is the most secure place to hide if you are small and helpless. Just look how this little ginger cat is looking for fun and protection. She even doesn't know that Suzie is not her mom, but who cares when there is a real time around?

One Day Is Always Enough
It is hard to get close with someone when you see him for the first time. Hartman says it is not a problem for this gentle boxer. She is like a magnet for the friends nearby, as cats love her and her small friends start to play in less than one day with her.

This is Kushi, one of the cats that stayed in Hartman's home after being fostered. Kelly Hartman noticed how strong was a connection between Suzie and kittens and somehow the dog has always been sad when her friends were going to the shelter. This is why Kushi, a one-eyed cat stayed with them.

Making an Instagram Page
After these two guys become best friends forever, their mom decided to make an Instagram page, where she could post photos of their adventures. Kushi started to take care of other cats in the house too. Now they are one big and happy family.

Of course, getting the best friend doesn't mean that Suzie stopped taking care of new kittens that were coming to their home. Most of the day she serves as their pillow and favorite toy, so there is no time for privacy. These small jumping balls are always on the go.

Not an Easy Job
Well, taking care of many kittens around is not an easy task. They are all looking for attention because they like to play and do crazy things. Suzie has a lot of patience for them, together with understanding.

Taking a Nap
Every time kittens like to take a nap – the dog is with them. Well, maybe you will tell this is a lazy dog, but it is not at all like that. Can you imagine how much energy is needed to run around and take care of so many fascinating animals?

Kushi Is Helping a Lot
It is nice to say that Kushi was a good choice. He is very helpful in all this mess, but Kelly Hartman was following her heart again, and she saw Kushi is also sad when cats are leaving. That was the time of her second important decision to leave one more cat in their home. That was Sunny Marz, also the one-eyed cat that passed through successful surgery and now is doing fine.

The Big Family Means Big Fun
There is no time for dull moments in Hartman's house. All the time there is some action inside, and they all need to work hard to keep the order and discipline. This beautiful family might be a real example how we all can do something good for our little friends around. We can only wish them good luck in their noble cause.
