A hilarious TikTok recently went viral, showing a confused kitten trying to nurse from the family’s pet dog, who has never been pregnant before.

The viral TikTok posted by @mz_blaze1169 has already gotten over 4.8 million views and thousands of comments from users who thought the video was hilarious. The clip shows a kitten named Gizmo suckling on Demi the pit bull’s nipple as her ‘husband’, a male pit bull name Drippy, watches and looks confused.

“Okay, that’s the dad, that’s the mom and this apparently is her baby,” the video read.

TikTokers started calling Gizmo a “pitten” combining the word pit bull and kitten.

“That’s not his mom but that’s her baby,” one user wrote.

“That cat is going to be tough. Raised on pit bull milk,” another added.

Kittens have a strong instinct to suckle and may attempt to nurse from other animals if they are not getting enough milk from their mother. It’s important to note that nursing from a dog is not a healthy or safe option for a kitten. Dogs do not produce milk that is suitable for kittens, and the risk of infection or injury is high. If you notice a kitten attempting to nurse from a dog, it’s important to intervene and provide appropriate care for the kitten, including feeding it kitten milk replacement formula and ensuring it receives proper veterinary care.
