Nursing cat adopts orphaned puppy in India


An unusual bond has developed between an adult cat and a puppy in central India.

Local resident Sunderlal Pawar, who already had a cat, Chini and its kitten Mini, decided to bring a new companion home: a puppy called Tommy.

As soon as Tommy arrived, the mother cat Chini adopted Tommy as its own.

Footage shows the cat feeding the puppy near their home in Betul city, Madhya Pradesh state.

''Since it is very rare to see a cat feeding a puppy I have neighbours and friends coming to my home to witness this rare sighting,'' Pawar said.
