TITUSVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A cat has taken two prematurely born Chihuahua puppies into her litter at the Brevard SPCA in Titusville.
Florida Today (http://on.flatoday.com/1frhZo8 ) reports the mother Chihuahua gave birth earlier this week to four puppies. Two of them died and the mother rejected the remaining two, each weighing only a few ounces.
Staff members decided to introduce the puppies into a litter of four Siamese mix kittens, born a week earlier.
The mother cat is now nursing and grooming the two puppies, along with her kittens.
