Heather Allen of the Halo Animal Rescue says she has never seen something like this before in her 15 years of saving animals.
A one-hour-old Chihuahua lost its mom while giving birth and a black cat steps up to nurse the pup. "It's pretty comical, even for us who have been around forever, we just keep looking with amazement."
A week ago Allen was left with quite the life-saving challenge. "I called Animal Control and I said 'What do you have for me that's nursing'?" The best Animal Control had was a black cat with four babies roughly the same size as the baby Chihuahua.
No problem so far. The pup is now a week old and thriving. However, Allen says the pup might not be litter trained by the time it is adopted.
