Dog Nurses Abandoned Kitten Back to Health (Video)

When Pat Weber’s grandson found an abandoned kitten in the family barn, the duo was very concerned about the kitten’s health. Fortunately, their dog Mittens was on the case. When the family brought the kitten inside to call a vet, the 4-year-old Pekingese began nuzzling the kitten and let her suckle, even though she wasn’t pregnant or nursing. After three days, she started producing milk to feed the kitten! Check out their heartwarming story above.

A beautiful story, very pretty dog and a very pretty kitten. Animals are smarter than a lot of people. They will take care of those in need where humans will just turn their backs.
