Tally the Husky was Raised by Cats So Thinks She Is a Cat Too [Gallery]

A small dog who was raised among cats believes that she is a cat as well.

Meet Tally. It’s likely that you will love her because she’s a husky who acts like a cat.

Reddit user DONG_OF_JUSTICE claims that the adorable dog — who is a mix of husky, malamute and something else—”was raised with cats, and thought she was f–king cat herself.” D_O_J’s family adopted Tally when she was 2 years old, but her previous owners were the ones with the cats.

D_O_J explains, “I was told that they were very mischievous and would bring her along their dastardly escapades together.” Which might be why his family eventually nicknamed her Tao Tao, which apparently means “mischievous” in Chinese.

Because of her inner catness, the small husky was never too keen on socializing with other dogs. “She’s not very interested in interacting with their kind,” D_O_J says.

“I’ve brought her to dog parks, and it’s pretty funny. She’ll walk around sniffing things, while a bunch of dogs are following her and trying to smell her ass. Doesn’t even notice them.”

Unfortunately, D_O_J’s family is forced to give the cute baby away: “My parents gave her away to some family friends a few years ago,” he says. “Because of her extensive shedding and because we couldn’t give her the attention she deserved (among other things, she needed at least two 1-1.5hr walks every day).”

However, Tally  seems to be adjusting to her new home. “They’re treating her excellently and she’s happy, so I’m happy,” he continued. “She’s not the kind of dog that’ll get homesick, but she’s still super excited when we visit her, which is really cute.”

And she never stopped being mischievous: “She’s not allowed to go upstairs, but she’ll try to sneak up one stair at a time. You can usually tell how badly she wants you to come downstairs by how far she’s gone up the stairs. This is about 3/10 urgency.”

Earlier this month a similar story occured. The story about a cute little stray kitten, called Matilda, who fell in love with a pit-bull and found her forever home.

Lisa Revella Morabito, director of operations at Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter’s (BARCS), took the little fluffy ball of cuteness two weeks ago to incorporate the kitten into the household, “to get her fattened up and socialize her.”

And to Lisa’s surprise everything went extremely well, as Matilda fitted in perfectly with new doggie friends. Morabito said that Matilda “tries to nurse off of Spike, which is funny since he’s our only male dog.”

“Her cuddling with all of the animals is adorable. Matilda usually runs around in the morning and plays with Fiona because the dogs sleep in as late as we’ll let them,” said Morabito.

“Once the afternoon hits and the dogs have been fed and walked, they retreat for more napping and Matilda joins them then for cuddling.”
