The New Odd Couple

I came across the story of an unlikely couple recently. There was a female terrier and eight-week-old kitten found together outside of a factory in Melbourne, Australia. The dog is believed to be 5 years-old and has given birth to puppies in the past. It's for this reason that the little kitten was able to nurse off of her.

The only medical problem that was found was on the dog who had a case of mange. It is treatable though. The bond these two share is matched by few. The Pet's Haven Animal Shelter in Woodend, Australia is hoping to adopt them out together.

If you live in the Melbourne area and would like both a feline and canine in your household, you can contact the Pet's Haven Animal Shelter.

Let's Discuss!

Have you had a pair of pets that were an unlikely twosome? Have you heard of a similar story to this one?
