A toddler meerkat which was likely to die after being left behind is now being nursed by a peculiar adoptive mother… a Chihuahua.
Tiny Wilson was abandoned by his real mother immediately after the birth. Dennis Drew owner of Mablethorpe Seal and animal Sanctuary, in Lincolnshire had the idea of presenting him to his colleague’s pet Chihuahua Kimi… who was going through a phantom pregnancy at that time. She has taken care of him as her own ever since.
After nearly 2 months with each other, the pair have built an inseparable relationship. Wilson now follows 18 month-old Kimi around wherever she goes, hitches a ride on her back – and the cute pair can often be seen curled up in a dog basket together.
