Dog mom nurses orphan kittens

In this week’s pet news, an uncommon pet relationship arises between a mama dog and a litter of orphan kittens.

Eighty-four year-old Elbert Bristow of Columbia owns a 2-year-old white dog named Molly and a cat whom he called “Kitty Kitty.” Both of his pets recently gave birth. Bristow returned home after a fishing trip earlier this week and accidentally ran over Kitty Kitty who unfortunately did not survive.

Molly, the maternal dog, has taken in the four six-week-old kittens to nurture them as her own. The kittens follow Molly around, perhaps thinking that she is their mother. Bristow plans on giving away all but one puppy and kitten.
