Boston Terrier Adopts Orphaned Kittens

Memory, a Boston Terrier, never had puppies of her own — but she knew just what to do when she found four orphaned kittens out in the cold. Memory’s owner, Shannon Williams, said the nurturing dog had been afraid of cats before she met the kittens, but she didn’t let that get in the way of helping them. She showered them with love and even nursed them. “She’s been very protective from day one,” Williams said.

A veterinarian told the Huffington Post that the needy kittens might have triggered a false pregnancy in Memory, allowing her to start producing milk. Williams has now found new homes for three of the kittens, and the fourth will stay with her so Memory can continue to take care of him. — Read more at People Pets
