Usually when a newborn baby is brought into a household all family members are so friendly with welcoming arms. The newborn is a brand new family member so it's only normal to be obsessed with the new addition. But of course family members aren't always just human beings, they're animals sometimes as well.
Take Kasey Boggs and her husband's family, for example. They recently brought their new baby home from the hospital and received the warmest welcome ever… from their four rescue dogs and a cat they own.
“When we brought Sonny home, I felt like they were expecting him,” said Boggs.
“From the minute we have brought Sonny home, they have respected him and loved him as one of their own.”
Although each of the pets equally love their new baby brother, they all love him in their own unique way and show affection differently.
Mia the cat is the protective one that makes sure he's safe. You'll never see her too far away from Sonny, always keeping an eye on him.
Roxy is the first dog the family ever adopted, technically making her the oldest. She likes to take naps with Sonny.
Edith and Rosie are the ones who are on cry patrol. Not that great of a responsibility to have, but they love doing it.
And then that leaves Jake, the only male of the animal pack. Being the alpha male, he naturally plays the big brother role.
He's irreplaceable and he actually comes in handy for assisting diaper-changing missions.
“They understand how gentle they have to be and their affection is the epitome of what every child should grow up surrounded with,” Boggs said.
