Dogs and cats no longer hate each other, at least at Abandoned Pet Rescue in Broward County, Florida.
Marcy, a lactating mix-breed Chihuahua, who was brought in by Broward Animal Control was united with two kittens, Romulus and Remus, who were left on the pet rescue's doorstep.
She is feeding the little cats her milk as if they were her own offspring.
"It's as if they were meant to be together. There's no doubt about that," said Kristine Sawyers of the pet rescue. "We've shattered that whole myth about dogs and cats not being able to get along."
The dog and cats are doing well and the kittens are very healthy, in fact, a little chunky.
"She seems to think she is doing what she's supposed to do," Sawyers said.
"I think the mothering instinct just take over and she's got babies and her heart's full and her life is full," said Dawn Heisler, who works at the pet rescue.
The animals will be put up for adoption.
