TITUSVILLE, Fla. -

A cat has taken two prematurely born Chihuahua puppies into her litter at the Brevard SPCA in Titusville.

Florida Today reports the mother Chihuahua gave birth earlier this week to four puppies. Two of them died and the mother rejected the remaining two, each weighing only a few ounces.

Staff members decided to introduce the puppies into a litter of four Siamese mix kittens, born a week earlier.

The mother cat is now nursing and grooming the two puppies, along with her kittens.
