Cat Adopts and Nurses Baby Ducklings!

When two farmers in Ireland found three of their ducklings missing, they thought the worst. But then they did a little searching and found them nestled up to the neighborhood cat, trying to nurse alongside her kittens!

They originally assumed "The White Cat," as she is called, was to blame for the missing duckies... but they quickly realized she was just protecting them and making sure the had enough to eat. Look how cute and happy she is with her new birdie babies!


P.S. Unfortunately, I am reading some reports that duckies can't actually nurse, so they're just kind of copying what the kittens are doing -- but it still makes for a cute video!

  3. Whaat a precious mommy and she is certainly protecting the ducklings and keeping them warm and cozy with her adorable babies. She is a beautiful "White Cat" and a treasure to have around I'm sure. Believe she is very proud of her 'charges'.

  7. It doesn't matter if ducklings don't nurse - the "Wild cat" takes her job very seriously and protects the ducklings as much as her kittens. Great, sweet video. Thanks for making me smile.

    That is so sweet! We had a barn cat who had several litters and whenever she would lose one of her own kittens, she would go hunting for another. With one litter, two of her kittens died so she brought home baby rabbits to replace them.
