A tiny black kitten was dropped off in a box on the steps of a vet office. One of the employees took her home, thinking they would hand rear her until their German Shepherd dog Raven immediately claimed the kitten as her own.

Raven who has never had puppies started producing milk after she was introduced to the little feline friend. Her maternal instinct kicked in when she saw that little kitten looking to nurse.

"She washes (the kitten) with her tongue and if it gets too far away she’ll herd it back. And we found out yesterday that she’s actually lactating," said the human mom via reddit.

The kitten is getting bottle fed by the humans while receiving motherly care from her dog mama.

It seems that the kitten is hers now.

She watches the kitten play...

...until she falls asleep. Raven is a very protective dog mama.

She keeps her kitten by her side and wouldn't be far away from her.
