This little tuxedo kitten was found without a mom, but soon that was about to change. When a pregnant dog saw the little kitten in need of motherly love, she took to him and started raising him like her own.

First day at his new home. The kitten wanted cuddles so badly that he started hugging the teddy.

"Some family friends found this little 2 week old kitten (guesstimate) in a field behind their house. Knowing we foster bottle babies for the local humane society, they called and asked if we could help the little guy. We of course said yes," Jamie Myers told Love Meow.

"Our mama dog was very close to delivering her pups at that time and took kitten in without hesitation! He was her baby and remained her baby even through the delivery of her own pups.

"To this day kitten doesn't know he is a cat!" Myers said.

"Mama dog is Callie, kitten is Widgie (short for Widget, because he was just a little widget when we got him)"

Callie is on orphan kitten duty. She won't let him out of her sight.

She seems to know that the kitten doesn't have a mommy and she becomes his new mom.

At this age, kitty already knows he is the boss!

The dogs are patiently waiting till kitten gets done with his kitty milk so they can have the leftovers!

"He has no idea he wasn't part of Callie's litter! He doesn't care that he's a different color....or species...she is his mama and these are his siblings!" Myers told Love Meow.
