JORDAN, Minnesota A Minnesota woman says she was shocked when her small dog began caring for an abandoned kitten, then started producing milk and nursing the fuzzy gray stray to health.

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

The local newspaper and media tv stations had live interviews and they also had gone to either a vet or pet store to purchase baby animal formula to feed it when it was first recovered. As nature is, baby animals would rather suckle at a breast than being fed from a bottle.

Your Pointer was a fabulous dog! I guess it is a mothering instinct and she sensed the kitten needed help. Great dog!

When I was little we had a hound dog who hunted rabbits, but would take a baby rabbit home to nurse and raise it. It seemed that they would not usually make it to adulthood, and we would end up burying it in the rabbit cemetery, where lied Hoppy I, II, and III. We sure would cry when we lost one of our wild babies, whether they be bird or mammal.
