It amazes me how strong the maternal instinct is in certain animals, that they often they will nurse any orphan animal they find. Mutual of Omaha even had a special of a lioness who was kicked out of her pride and would take in orphan gazelles. Reminds me of the Bible Verse of the lion lying with the lamb.

That cat will never be bothered by other cats or dogs as long as she keeps her adopted son/daughter nearby! She’s nursing her own personal bodyguard.

I’ll bet that Pit is hoping those four kittens get real nice and fat.

Why would cat nurses abandon a puppy?

I had a dog who would steal kittens, lick them all over to get rid of the cat smell, and try to nurse them. It was so sad. She was never able to have puppies.

We'd pick up the kittens and carry them back to their mother.

Martin - that particular news agency has people writing for them who, I swear, do not have good writing skills or, which is more likely, have English as a second language.

I linked to another article by them, one about “fluffy cows”. And they had a picture of a bovine calf which they described as “a male cow”. Ha! No bull! I kid you not!

There are FReepers who would disagree with you about that.

Are you really saying that because you hate Pit Bulls, no one should have Pit Bulls?

How very liberal of you.

how about exterminate the ones that turn them into aggressive dogs? They’re not born that way; they happen to be extremely loyal and do what their master’s want.

don’t get caught up in blanket blame like the libs do :)

I will not tolerate a dog that nips, the problem with pit bulls is they are not right in the head they go along as wonderful dogs then one day they lose it

So because you wont tolerate some thing it needs to be exterminated? And just how many Pits have you owned? I have owned 5. I never had one turn on me. I never had one nip me. I train my dogs in obedience and agility. Some I train to guard. Might I suggest to you a little more tolerance...

hey loserI never said exterminate anything. I actually kept my dog that nipped, it was a long road and a huge relief when she passed. But after that experience, she had nipped my mom and my mil and circled my brother, I swore I would never have a scary dog again and would never keep a nipping dog. No that doesn’t mean I put them down, luckily with a Boston and a Shizu I haven’t had issues with nipping.

So woopie for you, where I live pits are not permitted and I say rightly so. They are not right in the head and you never read about any other dog killing a person, or a baby or a toddler but a pit. You like dogs more than people? Fine. I don’t have to.

We had a Persian female who LOVED kittens. After having to have a caesarean section with one litter, the vet advised us not to breed her anymore. But when another female in the household would have kittens, she’d sneak in & get one & try to hide it in my father’s shoes.

Eventually she got bred by a ‘traveling man’ & had a litter of six with no difficulties. She was very happy!

"I say exterminate the breed."

Yes, because pit bulls are the only dogs who bite. /s

Denver banned pits. The result? Dog attacks increased.

first let me apologize for confusing your post with an others. now as far as the “loser” part... really? I don't think I know you personally and nothing in my post to you warrants name calling. I am sorry you had a poor experience with your dog. How often did you train with it? As far as where you live not allowing pits if you want to live there why should I care? Other dogs don't attack people? really? I would do a little research before making such a broad sweeping statement.... I think we will have to agree to disagree here and move on.... or in your case should I say “Forward”

It is amazing that the liberals come out on the pit bull and smoking threads.

I say exterminate the breed.

I say exterminate cowards.

You are welcome to come by the Compound and try to "exterminate" one of my dogs.

And then the puppy grew up and ate the cat. The end.
