Former Cat-Antagonizing Dog Adopts Kitten As Her Own

main image

Sherry Brandt, of Kodak, Tennesee was a bit concerned about her daughter bringing home an abandoned kitten she'd found in a grocery store parking lot. Ba Boo, her 3-year-old Chinese Shar-Pei, has a reputation for patroling against cat and rabbit trespassors at her house. How would Ba Boo react to the new addition?

Surprisingly, the Shar Pei took to the new kitten, Ally, immediately. They started playing together and Ba Boo would even give her tongue baths.

After they had been together a few weeks, Brandt noted that Ba Boo was looking a little swollen. "I thought, 'She couldn't have milk, because she's never had puppies. She's never been bred.'" But Ba Boo had apparently started to lactate in response to the kitten’s kneading, and now she’s nursing Ally as if she were her own.

Brandt says that Ba Boo takes her new mothering job very seriously. She cleans the kitten, carries her back to the crate and disciplines her with a bark when she does something she shouldn't.

Watch this amazing video to see how cute this unlikely pair is together!
