Loving Pit Bull Instantly Bonds With Rescued Newborn Kitten
A stray Pit Bull has been found caring for a two-day-old kitten on the side of a road. The heart-warming pair were discovered on March 17 and taken to the Mercy Animal Clinic in Garland, Texas, USA and have been inseparable ever since!
The unlikely little family were examined by Dr. Rick Hamlin and his team who revealed the kitten had been suckling from the pooch. Nicknamed Pittie and Kitty, Dr. Hamlin admitted he was amazed how easy-going the pit bull was even allowing him to handle the kitten.
As Kitty's eyes were still shut the vet was able to identify the feline was no more than 10-days-old. And Pittie had hanging mammary glands which allowed the team to see she had recently given milk. However, Pittie’s milk had been drying up, which meant that nurses had to bottle feed the tiny kitten, but the adoptive mom is never too far away from her ward, which by the way looks exactly like her!
The mom is friendly enough to allow the clinic’s staff to handle her baby, but she takes care of the rest herself, caring and bathing the minuscule kitten. The kitty had to be taken by the vet to their home for a night, but they assured their Facebook fans that the baby will be returned to its adoptive mommy in the morning.
The clinic are now scouting for potential owners for the pair - stipulating they are adopted together.
