Kit is a super mom who recently adopted four abandoned newborn puppies and gave them a chance to survive and thrive. But that’s not all.

The tiny Chihuahua puppies were found in a box on a car in the West Valley City, Utah. The woman who discovered the puppies saw a note on the box indicating that the puppies were motherless.

When she took the puppies to the shelter for help, the staff decided to put them with a surrogate cat mom to try to save their lives.

“The puppies would not have survived into the night without food, so we’re lucky that the woman found them on her car when she did,” Deann Shepherd of Humane Society of Utah told Fox13.

With help from Kit the cat mom whose kittens had been adopted, the puppies all made it through the night and are now getting care and lots of bottle feeding from the volunteers.

Now Kit is taking care of a new litter of orphan kittens that need some motherly love. When the kittens were introduced to their new mom, she took to them right away and started nursing the little ones like her own.

Though Kit is a super mom at the shelter, she is also looking for a forever loving home for herself.

A baby Chihuahua whose mother died after she was given birth, was rescued and taken to a new mother, a cat who was at the time nursing a litter of kittens.

The shelter staffers were first uncertain about adding the Chihuahua to the litter because they were not sure if the cat mother would accept her. After consulting several veterinarians, they decided to give it a try.
