A cat named Tom is proving that cats and dogs can live together in harmony, at least in one home in Urumqi, capital of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.
In addition to caring for the two puppies, Tom has trained them to chase after mice.
The cat adopted the puppies after their mother died giving birth to them, according to homeowner Shen.
The cat also recently gave birth to three kittens. The two puppies feed on her milk, Shen said.
