Just in time for Mother's Day, a kind Samoyed in China's Shandong Province is caring for two orphaned kittens.
The human good Samaritan who rescued the needy felines worried at first
that her dog might not respond well to the kittens, but her fears were unfounded.
Instead, the dog's mothering instincts have kicked in, and she feeds them and treats them just like they're her own, proving she's a natural.
