A kitten at a North Texas shelter has found an unlikely mom -- a dog.

The 4-day old kitten, named Onyx, is an orphan. When caretakers at Operation Kindness didn't have another nursing feline available to mother the kitten, they decided to try a Chihuahua-mix named Faline.

Now, Onyx fits right in and plays with her canine brothers and sisters while getting baths from "mom."

All of the animals are currently in foster care awaiting adoption.
