"Tocket" nurses one of her adopted bassett hound puppies Thursday morning at the home of Bridgit Lewis in Wadena. The 4 1/2-year-old cat lost her kittens Feb. 10. Four days later the pups were born and their own mother did not have milk for them. Tocket, who nearly died of a fever after losing her kittens, took over nursing duties, making it a happy ending for all concerned. Lewis, who owns several pets, plans to sell the pups when they are older.
