Gotta Watch: Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is May 8 and, in the spirit of motherhood everywhere, we wanted to share some warm-and-fuzzy mommy videos that will hopefully make you smile. Here's a hint: They involve baby animals and their - how should we say, atypical? - mothers. These videos prove that you don't have to be a biological mother to be a mom.

Chihuahua's motherly instinct - This video from 2007 could be one of the cutest, or most disturbing videos ever.  At first glance, everything looks totally normal. Until you realize those babies aren't actually puppies.

Dog is mother of the year to kittens - Who said dogs and cats can't get along?  Check out this video of a pooch named Lily Lou at an animal shelter in Iowa who ends up adopting nine motherless kittens.

Chicken takes pups under wing - Back in 2003 the Scott family, got the shock of a lifetime.  They came home to find that one of their pet chickens had flown its coop and set up shop with a litter of new born puppies and their doggy mom. They all seem to get along fine, only problem is that the pups are having a little trouble telling the difference between feather and fur so feeding is a bit of a challenge.

    Yes, Caesar, but what about all the puppies that are bred, come out "substandard", and are killed by the breeders? And the people who let their cats breed indiscriminately, then drown the kittens? Some people should not be able to own pets.

    Oh, Philip, I know just what you mean! My Neala just left a little while ago, and I miss her already! She had her baby bonnet on today, and she looked sooooooo cutilicious!

    It's amazing that animals seem to know when another is in need of nurturing even when it's of a different species.It just comes to show that they can show unconditional love and affection. Very heartwarming stories 🙂
