The night Penny the Chihuahua gave birth to a stillborn puppy, she sobbed at her loss. With tears streaking down her eyes and snout, she mourned for her poor baby. That’s when her owners knew they had to try something to lift her spirits. They called everyone they knew to see if there was a puppy anywhere in need of a mom.
Well, they found some babies, but they weren’t of the canine variety. They wondered: could animals from different species love each other like mother and child? They decided to give it a shot…
Dale Fulk and Jeffery Mullins, the owners of Penny and the five kittens, describe their relationship like this: “You’ve heard it said that blood is thicker than water, well love is thicker than blood.”
After viewing how incredibly close Penny and her new kittens already are, we’re 100% sure they’re right!
