4 Senior Chihuahuas Adopt Tiny Kitten, Adorable Family Of Misfits Take Instagram By Storm.

4 senior chihuahuas

Los Angeles resident Julie Docherty has a big heart for adopting pets. Up until very recently, her love has specifically been for rescuing senior chihuahuas. It all started with MoMo, now 16 years old. When Julie met MoMo, it was love at first sight, but it also came with heartbreak as Julie realized just how overlooked senior shelter dogs can be. Since then, Julie took in three more senior chihuahuas: Linda (13), Choli (14), and Benito (15).

Julie has been sharing photos of her precious “rescued geriatric gems,” as she calls them, on Instagram, helping to spread the word about the joys of owning a senior pet. Now the little family has nearly 7 thousand followers! But recently, Julie switched things up, adding a new character to this funny little cast… a tiny kitten named Rosita.

Little Rosita has already bonded with her senior chihuahua siblings. Though they may differ in age (and species), the little family is close as can be! 


Rescue round table to discuss a name for kitten little. After much consideration we’ve come to a decision. Since she was found on the streets of Skid Row, we will call her Ro, short for Rosita Left to right: Mo, Ro, Pali, Beni and Choli #animalsynergy #olddogswithanewsidekick #seniorrescuepurrrfection #dogsandcat #kittenlittle #rescuesaveslives A photo posted by oldisthenewnew â­ï¸ (@jemandthemisfits) on

Looking at the quintet, it’s hard not to think “one of these things is not like the other”…

…but it looks like they’re all pretty happy with the way things are!
