A Mama Cat That Just Had Kittens Adopts Three Ducklings And Raises Them As Her Own
June 19, 2015
Meet Della. She lives on a farm in Ireland, and she just had kittens.
But that's not all she has - a few hours after giving birth, she came across these newly hatched ducklings.
Her mother instinct kicked in, and she brought them along and started to nurture them.
It's amazing to see ducklings draw milk from her, and one can only guess that this is an instinct from the ducks too, as they have come across an unusual source for nutrition and just learned from the kittens.
As the ducks grow older, they start to behave more like ducks and less like kittens. This includes constantly walking away from the box...
...and mother has a lot of work keeping them in place.
They have no problem keeping in line though. And even though they grow a lot faster than their "siblings", they loyally follow their mom around the farm, as ducks do.
