How did the dog adopt two litters of kittens?
Eve was lactating when the accident happened. A search for Eve's puppies came up empty-handed, and Eve was described as depressed until she met the kittens at the Midland animal shelter.
The kittens, two females and four males, are part of two litters that were discovered without a mother. One litter was 2-3 weeks old and the other was 4-5 days old. Animal shelter workers needed to find a "mother" for the orphaned kittens, and decided on Eve.
"She instantly took to them," Zrubek said. "She loves the job and duty of being a mom."
Cassie's Place knew about Eve, but did not know she was nursing kittens when a volunteer went to pick her up. Cassie's Place couldn't bear to separate the unusual family.
