Buttercup the chihuahua is a new mommy, but not to a scrappy litter of yapping puppies.
No, the tiny 2-year-old pooch has become a mom to nine orphaned kittens at the Angel Animal Hospital in Surrey, England.
Buttercup lost her puppy two weeks ago just four hours after giving birth, but when a litter of hungry kittens arrived at the hospital, the grieving dog embraced the role of mom.
Buttercup immediately began cleaning the kitties that soon latched-on to fill their empty bellies.
