Yorkie Mom Raises New Born Kittens
From Utah - Bridget is a 10 -year-old Yorkshire terrier that was surrendered to the Humane Society of Utah last week. She was pregnant, and just days later gave birth to 2 pups, but they did not survive.
Later that day kittens arrived at the shelter.
The next morning when doctors came to check on both of their new patients, those patients had found each other. All five kittens, nestled under Bridget's caring fur and watchful eye ... she had become a mother after all.
"I haven't seen anything like that before, it was really just quite exciting, really quite touching," Van Zandt said.
And so, since Monday, this 10-year-old dog has been doing all of the usual 'new mom' activities for this litter of five kittens. She's been cleaning, chasing and even feeding her adoptive babies.
