What happens when you give a puppy a kitten

An elderly couple decided to buy a kitten to raise after the death of their beloved cat, Peter Greene, according to local media reports.

A post on the blog of local animal charity The Paws of Love said the kitten was born with a rare genetic defect that caused it to be unable to breed.

A vet at the clinic said the pet would be raised by volunteers in a foster home.

The couple bought the kitten for around $1,200 (RM3,200).

Pet owners in Indonesia are being urged to check on the welfare of their cats after a spate of cases of kittens being stolen in the country.

In September, a 16-month-old kitten was stolen from a home in Sulawesi province.

A man was arrested in September after police found the kitten in a shed in Sulaira city.
