Orphaned kittens find a new “mama”
Monday July 2nd, 2012
A 2-year-old dog is doing double mothering duty, as the dog is not only caring for her newborn pups, but a litter of kittens, too.
With no mama cat to supply milk for her kittens, Molly stepped up, and, with her three puppies kept in a separate location, feeds the tiny felines on a regular basis.
“The flow of the milk coming from the dog is much greater than the cat; they can’t drink it fast enough,” Bristow says of the kittens. “I’ve had dogs all my life — I’ve trained bird dogs and coon dogs, but this is the first time I’ve ever had a dog take a litter of kittens.”
When the kittens aren’t feeding off the dog, they follow her around.
Bristow plans to give all but one kitten and one puppy away.
