Ruby Jane the Bloodhound became an overnight super star when her owner captured the purest of moments between her and a tiny foster kitten on camera.

Stephanie Vice is a veterinarian. As such, she is used to taking home young animals in need of fostering. Ruby Jane, her 5-year-old Bloodhound, is always very gentle with the pups and kittens Stephanie brings home, but Bodie in particular awakened her motherly instincts.
The right match
The little kitten was brought into the SPCA with her two siblings. They were too young to survive without their mother, so the only solution was to bottle-feed them around the clock until they were old enough to be adopted. Stephanie knew this was the perfect job for her. She brought him home, and soon realised she’d made the right decision…
A heart-warming scene
The sweet scene captured on camera takes place in the sink, where little Brodie the tiny kitten is having a much-needed bath.
Like most cats, Bodie is not a huge fan of bathing, and starts to show signs of discomfort. Sensing this, Ruby Jane approaches the sink and gently gestures towards the little feline, pawing at his head with all the tenderness in the world.
Of course, it looks like the sweet pooch also wants to play, but she’ll have to wait for the kitten to grow a little stronger before she can do that!
Knowing she held in her camera roll a treasure, Stephanie decided to post the video online. And within just a few days, it became a huge hit! Thousands began to call the SPCA where Bodie came from, inquiring about the possibility of adoption!
