Video has emerged from Tennessee, USA, showing an adopted cat named Ally sucking on the teats of a three-year-old dog called Ba Boo.
What makes the story even stranger, if that was possible, is the fact that Ba Boo’s owner Sherry Brandt thought the bitch couldn’t produce milk because she had never mothered any puppies, according to WRCB.
But when she started nursing a kitten that had been abandoned at a nearby parking area, it seems they were mistaken.
When Ally arrived home, the two animals immediately hit it off – with the pair often wrestling around.
‘She seemed to have faith that this was her mum and that she’d get milk,’ Brandt said.
‘Ba Boo seems to believe that she’s the cat’s mum.
‘It’s just a miracle that she got milk and she is nursing this kitten.’
