(WBIR) Ba Boo, a 3 year old Shar Pei from Kodak, Tennessee has many scratching their heads in disbelief.
Her owner, Sherry Brandt, describes her as a sweet dog who likes to be at home. And why wouldn't she? Ba Boo has everything a single dog could want, her own house, her own yard, her own space. That all changed when Ba Boo's owner brought home a new friend.
Sherry's daughter rescued an abandoned kitten from a local Kroger parking lot. They took the kitten in and named her Ally. It didn't take long for Ba Boo and Ally to hit things off, constantly playing and wrestling.
After a few weeks, Sherry noticed that Ba Boo was looking swollen.
"I thought, she couldn't have milk because she's never had puppies, she's never been bred," she says.
None of that mattered. It was official, Ba Boo was now a mother.
"She seemed to have faith that this was her mom and that she'd get milk. Ba Boo seems to believe that she's the cat's mom. It's just a miracle that she got milk and she is nursing this kitten," Brandt says.
