Bulldog Nurses Newly-Orphaned Kittens

Molly, a two-year old American Bulldog, is one busy pooch. She gave birth to a litter of puppies only six weeks ago, and now she has a bunch of hungry kittens to look after too.

According to the Dothan Eagle, when mother cat ”Kitty Kitty” was hit by a car, Molly allowed her four orphaned kittens to nurse. Both dog and cat were raised by Elbert Bristow, 84, of Columbia, Alabama. They gave birth only a day apart. “I’ve had dogs all my life. I’ve trained bird dogs and coon dogs,” Bristow told the Eagle, “but this is the first time I’ve ever had a dog take a litter of kittens.”


Bristow says the kittens, which include one orange, one white, one grey and white, and one with Siamese-type markings, follow Molly around just like she was their mom. She spends 5 to 10 minutes with them at a time, and lies down and lets them eat. Bristow keeps the puppies separated on another part of his property.

“It is unusual, very unusual,” says Bristow. Still, it’s not the first time a dog has adopted a kitten. Dogs have been documented mothering cats, piglets, and even baby tigers.
