When an Anderson, South Carolina animal control officer went to the aid of a little dog that wouldn’t stop barking at the bottom of a ravine, she got the shock of her life when she found a dog, nursing a tiny kitten that was trapped there.
As it turns out, the dog was actually barking for help and staying with the lost kitten to protect her. Locals said the dog had been barking by the creek for 2 days, where she entered a “pseudo-pregnancy” and began producing milk for the tiny kitten to survive on.
Officer Michelle Smith took both the dog and her adopted kitten to Anderson County P.AW.S. where they hope to identify the dog’s owner. They’re hoping whomever owns the sweet little dog will adopt her new kitten baby, too, as the pair are inseparable!
