Cody and Sierra might not know that they're dogs. Or maybe they think cats are just puppies - their puppies.

Sylvia Cavazos often has a few kittens running around her home. She's a foster parent for Homeless Cat Network, a Northern California-based no-kill feline rescue organization. Her two dogs - Cody, a rescued Akita, and Sierra, a fun-loving Shiba Inu - help take care of the kittens and provide a wonderfully unique socialization tool: They teach the kittens to love dogs. This is great news for adopters seeking pooch-friendly kitties.
