Rescue Dachshund Nurses Rescue Kitties

Uh Oh.  Cute Alert.  What happens when 4 abandoned kitties need a momma and the only momma at the shelter is a Dachshund who just had 2 puppies?  That's right, she took in the kitties as her own.  Meet 'Jackie-O,' her 2 puppies, and 2 of her 4 adopted kitties, who are calling the Young County Humane Society Shelter in Graham, Texas, their home for now.  Excerpt from The Graham Leader:

Kim Baxter put one cat in the cage with the mother dog and her two 4-day-old puppies and was surprised to see the dog immediately take to the kitten. She slowly put in the other three.
“She took them right away and started cleaning them,” Baxter said.
Over the last few weeks, the kittens have become part of the litter, eating with the puppies, playing with the puppies and sleeping with the puppies. As a result, the mother dog and her litter believe they are all puppies.
