Pets are beginning to bridge the dog/cat divide through the love of some dog and cat moms.
The latest surrogate mother is a cat who is nursing an orphaned Chihuahua puppy at the Michigan Humane Society, according to the group’s Facebook page.
Bobby the puppy was only 2 days old when his mother was hit by a car. A nursing cat being fostered by a Michigan Humane Society volunteer was suggested as a possible surrogate mom, so the coordinators who took in Bobby thought they’d give the mother cat a shot at raising a Chihuahua.
Now 5 weeks old, Bobby shows that a mother’s love is universal, even across species lines. `
