Puppy gets 'adopted' by kittens

A puppy that was rejected by its mother has been adopted by a cat and her kittens.

Coco the Siamese cat has let the the one-week-old puppy, Hope, sleep alongside her kittens who were born on the same day.

Coco's owner Paula Ball, from Huyton in Liverpool, said: "Hope is the same size as the kittens at the moment and gets fed and washed just like them."

Paula is planning to start weaning Hope in the next four to six weeks.

Paula adds: "It's a real miracle and very heart-warming to see them all snuggled up together.

"Hope has been through a lot but she is a real survivor."
