IF "Instinct"


I saw a news report recently about an abandoned dog and her pups at an animal shelter in Iowa. The puppies were quickly adopted, and shortly after, a litter of newborn kittens were left. The staff worried about how they would care for them all, when someone suggested leaving them with the mother dog. She immediately began to nurse, clean and care for them as if they were her own. It was a remarkable thing.
