“This is one example of why I love my job,” Smith said in her report.
In a ravine in South Carolina, a tiny Shih Tzu was found protecting a kitten.
After someone called Animal Control, Officer Michelle Smith found them and brought them in.
After reviewing their conditions, she made the conclusion that the dog must have been caring for the kitten the entire time they were in the ravine.
Even at the shelter, the pair were inseparable.
The feisty surrogate pup was actually lactating, a result of a “pseudo pregnancy.” Her milk helped keep the kitten alive.
The dog was named Goldie and the kitten was named Kate. The pair have found their forever home, and now they’re all grown up. Still, they’re just about the cutest duo in town.
