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.

    MontyBOSSY, it wasnt me who said to mind their own business. I know we are in a public forum. There are also people here I talk to regularly and its the only place I DO see them, so I greet them when I havent been here in a while or its a notable day . If that offends your delicate sensibilities, perhaps YOU should be on a land line.so there.nanny nanny boo boo.

    I am with Oreo. raven is very consciensious but should not respond to jerks who illicit a response from her. Why talk to morons?

    My uncle made national headlines back in the mid-60s. On his farm he had this piglet whose mommy had been buthcered. (yummy btw) Well, he also had this she-goat whose baby was born dead. Guess what! The goat adopted the piglet! The pig even suckled from the mommy goat! He really thought he was a goat! He didn't want to have anything to do with the other pids at all. He prefered the company of goats, and even became stubborn himself!
