This adorable kitten really is feline confused – because she thinks she’s a DOG.
Heidi Moor was surprised to find that her two pooches Skyler and Dolly were far more accommodating than she expected – when she found them caring for 13-week-old Patches and even NURSING her.
She explained that from the moment Patches was brought home, she was far more taken with the dogs than her family.
Patches sleeps with the two-year-old Poodle and ten-year-old Lakeland terrier and even suckles on them for comfort and milk.
Heidi, from Gravesend, Kent, said: “The three of them are inseparable.
“I think that when we collected her, she was very young, and maybe slightly too young to leave her mum and that’s why she was taken by the dogs.
“It pretty much started the moment that we got her in the house.”
Heidi and her family spotted Patches on a local Gumtree advertisement and impulsively decided to collect her.
She added: “At first I was concerned because I wasn’t sure if it was good for them to be so attached, but we visited the vet who said it was probably a comforting thing for her.
“It doesn’t seem to bother the dogs though, so we just let them do it.
“We think it’s strange that the two dogs look after her like their own baby – but it’s also very sweet.”
