Mother Cat Nurses Abandoned Pit Bull Puppy

An abandoned Pit Bull puppy showed up at a shelter in Cleveland, far too young to be separated from its mom, especially since he was still feeding from her. The staff decided to try something very unconventional in order to save the tiny pup. A mother cat had just given birth, and was happily feeding her little ones when the puppy showed up at the shelter. The pup was introduced to the cat and her new litter, and it worked! She took in the pup as her own and let him share meals with her kittens.

Because he’s a larger breed dog, he requires additional feedings (you can see mama cat doesn’t really agree with that, and paws at the volunteer as she gives supplement feedings). Because this cat has a heart of gold and the perfect mothering instincts, this pup is thriving. Amazing!
