Dog Mothering Kittens

Post by Dee_Marie » Sat Sep 23, 2017 9:19 pm

I found four one week old kittens rejected by their mom on Wednesday and brought them inside. My girl Missy who is ten years old has always mothered baby animals or small animals brought in. I'm worried that it's not good for her. She is guarding them, whines when they cry pretty much acting like they are hers. I'm not allowing her to take care of her and keep the crate shut. She has collected stuffed animal because of not having access to the kittens and treating them like puppies.
Should I allow her to mother the kittens?
Should I let her keep the stuffed animals or take them.
