All too often we don’t give animals the credit they deserve for being incredibly compassionate and caring beings. We overlook their ability to feel emotions and comprehend situations, but nearly everyday we find an example of an animal who is proving us all wrong. One such animal is this abandoned Yorkshire terrier.

Houston-based photographer, Robyn Arouty was told by a friend that a dog and two kittens had been found abandoned in a neighboring yard. Arouty wasted no time calling a friend who is connected to a rescue organization. She then grabbed her camera and set out to meet these three abandoned animals. On her blog Arouty writes, “just when you think you’ve seen it all,” and introduces the Yorky who has become the foster mother to these two kittens.

Left alone together in a small crate, these three animals had no idea why they were there or what would become of them.

But clearly, confusion gave way to motherly instincts in no time.

The Yorky had recently given birth and took to nursing the kittens as if they were her own.

So amazeing! I hope they stay together. I found two kittens a week old abandoned. I bottle fed them 4 months. Kept them in a cooler with a blanket with heat pads underneath the blanket so they think they were with thier mother. I couldn't separate them. I've had them 10 years next July. I named them Samson and Delilah. I also adopted two pet bulls. If I could afford more animals believe me I'd have a yard full.
