Ten-month-old J.J. nurses her two kittens and a 2-week-old raccoon on Monday at Jonesboro Animal Control in Jonesboro Ark.

Which of these does not belong?

It was a chance encounter.

Ten-month-old J.J. arrived at the Jonesboro Animal Control in Jonesboro Ark., on Friday with her own kittens. The same day, an animal control officer rescued a baby raccoon and was having a hard time getting the it to eat.

They put it next to J.J. and she immediately started nursing and cleaning it.

Animal Control supervisor Larry Rogers said they have been calling the raccoon Bandit.

"We were having to feed him around the clock every two hours and had to clean him up; now the momma cat does everything," Rogers said.
