If you're wary of blubbering like a royal baby in front of your coworkers, do not read this story at your desk. Michelle Smith is an animal control officer in Anderson, South Carolina. She was responding to a fairly ordinary call about a dog barking in a ravine behind a Home Depot, but when she got there, she found something totally awesome that resulted in these incredibly adorable photos. The dog wasn't really stuck; she was just tending to a tiny, month-old kitten. And she was nursing the kitten back to health, like that scene at the end of The Grapes of Wrath except way, way cuter.
