My old Shorthair Pointer would bring cats and kittens home all of the time. She would find the dead our dying in the street and take them into the barn to try and nurse them back to health. Of course we would find them and throw them in the garbage and she would walk with us to the can.

She just absolutely loved kittens and the one time we brought one home she claimed it a nursed it. We could never figure it out.

I hope the dog doesn’t consider itself to be a cat; or conversely, that the kitten doesn’t start thinking it’s a puppy. If so, we’ll have to expand the “LGBTQ” list to include trans-species animals that aren’t sure what they are.... LOL
