If Your Bunny’s Mommy Is a Cat…

Cats are really good at being mothers, and pretty generous about it, too. If kittens, or a human baby, aren’t available, well–bunnies will do. Even a baby chick will do. Anything, as long as it’s nice and fuzzy and needs a mommy. One of these cats has her own kittens and still adopts–and nurses–a bunny. And somehow a dog nursing a kitten got in here, too. Plenty of love to go around.

    That was heartwarming. Somehow, the very first clip really touched me, the chick wanting to be sheltered by the cat and the cat being so affectionate to the chick. I guess that humans and animals both appreciate someone warm and cuddly.

    As I write, my own little cuddle bug is lying beside me, on my chair. It’s a wonderful gift from God Himself.

      Did you notice how the cat made a scarcely audible little vocalization to the chick, and then the chick–as if the cat had invited it to do so–dove under the cat, just as if she’d been a hen? That’s a very complicated transaction, well beyond the powers of simple biological machines.

        I deed I did. That is amazing. There is something in many of these animal videos that borders on the miraculous. Maybe it’s just part of the everyday miracle of life, but it’s powerful.

    That bunny getting its liquid lunch from the momma cat was priceless – amazing!
