You might think Tinkerbell. The tiny chihuahua is busy enough looking after her brood of four puppies, let alone three kittens.
But Tinkerbell, who is barely 10 inches high. She has not only let the moggies on her turf, but she has also accepted them as her own and is happy to feed the cold and hungry newborns.
She went into labor last week and had a cesarean birth at the Hobart Animal Hospital in Australia.
While her owner Angie Reynolds was at the chihuahua’s bedside, a man brought in three orphaned kittens.
After learning that the kittens would likely be put down, Ms. Reynolds decided to take them home and hand-rear them until they were ready to go to new homes.
When she introduced the kittens to Tinkerbell, it was puppy love at first sight.
‘Not only has Tinkerbell accepted them, but she also cleans and snuggles the kittens and gets frantic if I pick one up,’ Ms. Reynolds said.
How lovely are Tinkerbells?
Videos of talking dogs have been going viral across YouTube as early as 2008.
Mishka, the Siberian husky, broke the internet in an adorable video posted on YouTube in 2008, saying ‘I love you to her owner.
Meanwhile, in 2015, David Letterman introduced the world to Odie the pug, who adorably shared the same sentiment.
