Gunyah Animal Healing Sanctuary can be found in Yarck, Victoria. Gunyah provides a loving home to animals that have been abused, neglected, have an illness or special needs.
Introducing Tahlia, the cat, and Jemelda, the dog. Both Tahlia and Jemelda had been abandoned. They came separately to Gunyah after being found and rescued.
Kathy, the founder of Gunyah, said that the two were meant to find one another. Kathy admits she has never seen a bond like the one between Tahlia and Jemelda.
Here is a picture of the moment when Tahlia found her best friend!
Jemelda had had a rough start in life and came to the sanctuary afraid of everyone and everything. Over time, she improved but hadn’t formed a bond with any of the other animals.
That all changed when Tahila walked into her life. Kathy said they formed an incredible bond in just a few weeks. Each day, the two spend hours together snuggling.
Tahlia has comforted Jemelda, a senior dog, from the moment they met. When they are not cuddling, Tahlia is grooming her buddy; they are inseparable.
The love between Tahlia and Jemelda has spread to the other animals. Snuggle piles are a common site at Gunyah. Tahlia has nurtured many of the residents including lambs, kittens, and goats.
Tahlia’s favorite seat!
Even though there are plenty of beds for all the animals, Tahlia prefers sleeping on top of Jemelda! Jemelda is okay with it!
