Tahoe and Lillie will be forever friends…

Strange but true, Lillie, a 3 year old long haired dachshund has been nursing Tahoe a grey and white striped kitten, after being found in the engine of a running truck in Victoria, Texas. 

 Ever since the kitten was found under the hood of Eunice Collins’ running Chevrolet Tahoe a few weeks ago, he’s been feeding from the unusually cooperative longhaired dachshund.

“That’s not going to happen very often,” said veterinarian John Beck, who added that the “kitten got lucky, basically” that he found a dog with those maternal instincts.

When Lillie’s owner brought the rescued cat in the house, it induced a false pregnancy, making the hormones needed to produce milk.
