Dachshund adopts, nurses kittens abandoned during snow storm

A mini dachshund has stepped up to nurse a group of four kittens after their mother abandoned them.

The Blizzard Kittens, as they’re now called, were born on a couple’s front porch a day after a snow storm dumped upwards of nine inches across portions of Indianapolis. Their mother wanted nothing to do with them so the couple sprang into action and took them inside to warm them up.

Dog JoJo decided she was their mother and soon started producing milk. The couple says she acts as if she birthed them herself.

The kittens, all boys, have been named after Greek Gods. There’s Poseidon, Hephaestus, Pan and Zephyr.

The boys will be up for adoption in eight weeks time. They will be neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and wormed.

You can watch the Blizzard Kittens’ progress on Facebook.
