I don’t think it’s confused. I think all the cat see’s is baby. So she takes care of the puppy.
This reminds me of a cat that I used to own. He was a real sweet cat!
This cat looks like my boy, too. He is the sweetest cat, so cuddly and loves everyone in our house.
Mama Cats will mother anything little or that get near them and they think need a bath. That little dog probably feels loved no matter whether he has a cat licking him or his own mama.
My cat does that to my pit puppy.
ah how sweet.
