A stray pit bull has been found caring for a two-day-old kitten on the side of a road. The pair were discovered on March 17, and taken to the Mercy Animal Clinic in Garland, Texas, USA.

They were examined by Dr. Rick Hamlin and his team who revealed the kitten had been suckling from the pooch. Nicknamed Pittie and Kitty, Dr. Hamlin admitted he was amazed how easy-going the pit bull was, even allowing him to handle the kitten.

As Kitty’s eyes were still shut the vet was able to identify the feline was no more than 10-days-old, and Pittie had hanging mammary glands which allowed the team to see she had recently given milk.

The clinic are now scouting for potential owners for the pair—stipulating they be adopted together.
