Cat gives milk to neglected Pups of bitter rival

This cat has become a local celebrity after she was spotted giving milk to eight pups who were neglected by their mother. When it is feeding time, she lies down and the eight pups rush to get their belly-full of milk. These are not just any pups, they are babies of a rival dog with whom she has spent a lifetime fighting, but that’s an enmity she doesn’t seem to want to carry forward to the next generation. The cat, Pinky, and the German Shepherd, Ruby, are owned by Mohan Naik of a village near Belthangady in South India. The nearly two-year-old animals never got along and fight constantly with Ruby never missing an opportunity to give Pinky a hearty chase. In late October, both Pinky and Ruby became mothers at the same time. While Pinky gave birth to 2 kittens, Ruby outdid her with a litter of 8 pups. Mohan Naik says Ruby could not produce milk in sufficient quantity and was also reluctant to feed her babies.
