Wolf Mother's Kitten!
Feb 4th, 2012 at 6:27pm
 
    This is very cute and not as unusual as one might think:

    My Shepherd in the favorite pets thread, Comet, raised three of our kittens.  She was spayed when she was around 16 weeks but had a very strong maternal instinct, so she made the best of her situation.  The cats always saw her as their mother and were mortified for weeks when she died at 14 1/2 years old.  This is a true story.

Hey my dog raised some cats too!
It was 5 or 6 years ago, when he was younger and willing to have a family: these cat's mom was captured for being sterilized, and Tito took care of her kittens for about a week.
There were 4 of them and one is still alive - strangely, she became frightened of Tito in the last year: a sign of senile dementia?  Smiley
Greetings,
Mauro.

Stangely enough, last year we had a deer protecting a mother goose and her goslings. No one knows what happened to the male (presumed dead) and the deer would stand guard while the nest was full.Anyone getting near got attacked.

   Now that's unusual, sb.  I wouldn't expect that from deer.
