19-month-old sibling cats breastfeeding on their dog mother

A strange video of a couple of adult cat siblings at 19-months-of-age breastfeeding on a dog who looks very gentle and accommodating. They were probably raised by the dog when newborns as the mother was unavailable for whatever reason. But I find it difficult to understand why the owner does not gently discourage it and ensure that they are fed good quality cat food. I am not sure that it is good for the cats to drink milk as adults. It implies that they don't want to become independent. It is an extended kittenhood. It is ironic because when they stop suckling at the 'mother's' breast they will become kittens to their human companion. The human will become the mother. Confusing for the cats! Not really because it is all instinctive.

The normal aspect of this video is that it is very common to see dogs raise cats and vice versa. It happens all the time with great success.  Kittens become independent at around 12 weeks old normally.

Note: This is a video from another website. Sometimes they are deleted at source which stops them working on this site. If that has happened, I apologise but I have no control over it.
