And at first, the new feline family did not have any trouble from the household’s dogs, Archer and Zoe, who ignored them for the most part. However, as time went on, Archer, a dachshund mix, began to show an inordinate interest in the litter. This was a worry to oowth – why did Archer seem so enthusiastic to get at the kittens all of a sudden?

So dogged was Archer, in fact, that his owner began to get curious. Eventually, then, oowth decided – with her keeping a firm grip on the situation – to see what the dog would do. “I eventually let him get near [the kittens] under close supervision,” she later wrote on imgur. Much to her followers’ relief, though, the outcome was not carnage – it couldn’t have been more to the contrary. “He just licked them all over,” oowth revealed, adding, “Mama did not mind him at all.” Indeed, Archer would become much like a father to the kittens.
