A Detroit dog was left all alone just days after his birth when his mother was fatally hit. By a car has been taken in under an unlikely wing of a cat and her litter of kittens.

“They’re pretty young, so they’re growing into their personalities,” Ryan McTigue of the Michigan Humane Society told ABC News.

“After he’s big enough, we will get him in foster care among dogs, so he can learn to be a dog. He’ll be a good ambassador for both species, that’s for sure.”

Little Bobby, who is just five weeks old. Was rescued on April 1 in Bingham Farms in Southfield Township, Oakland County, and brought to the Michigan Humane Society, as reported by ABC.

“The mother had gotten hit by a car, and, unfortunately. She passed away when he was a couple of days old. A puppy that young needs his mother,” McTigue said.

When the little Chihuahua mix was taken to the animal rescue shelter. The staff decided to see if a cat who was nursing a litter of five kittens may feel a motherly instinct toward the orphaned little pup.

The cat, whose name is Gwen, took Bobby right under her paw.

“Gwen, she was very content with all her little guys running around, so it seems like a perfect fit,” McTigue said, adding that staff at the hospital are tending to their medical needs.

“They’ll be in foster care until they’re big enough to find loving homes.”

The video posted to the Humane Society’s Facebook page on April 22 has already amassed over 50,000 views. There’s no shortage of people looking to adopt one of the furry little fellas.
