Chihuahua Nurses Litter of Kittens After Her Puppy Passes Away (VIDEO)
Loss and mourning are universal, as much for animals as for humans. Everyone deals with grief differently, however, as evidenced by the almost instinctual reaction of this poor mother.
Penny the Chihuahua gave birth to a stillborn puppy, and struggled to come to grips with her loss. In an attempt to cheer her up, her owners began their search for a puppy in need of a mother, but what they found was something very different: a litter of kittens! And you know what? Penny took right to nursing them, as if they were here own. While the kittens could never replace the puppy she lost, Penny at least seems to be moving on. “You’ve heard it said that blood is thicker than water, well love is thicker than blood,” said Penny’s owners Dale Fulk and Jeffery Mullins, and we’d be hard-pressed to disagree.
