A puppy and kitten who became so close at an animal rescue centre in Old Windsor they thought they were sisters have been re-homed together.
Jack Russell puppy Buttons and her feline friend Kitty, both less than two months old, have moved away from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in Priest Hill.
The Read family from Colchester, in Essex, have adopted the pair after seeing their story on the Battersea website.
They will join other pets at the 800-acre site, including Rosie the dog and the family's two other cats Marge and Homer.
Mum Maureen Read said the family cannot believe they got them and both will be given lots of 'love, attention and kisses'.
Buttons was born at Battersea but was rejected by her mother, and Kitty was found abandoned in a garden at just one week old.
Kaye Mughal, centre manager at Battersea, said that they even had an offer to re-home them from the USA.
