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.

    @Cesar...we know you well enough to see it isn't you posting that crap. Think nothing of it. @banasy...'tis true ya know. Does your library still have microfilm of old newspapers? My uncles name was Dave Tafoya and his farm is on 24 1/2 Rd. in Fruita, CO. It'd be cool if you could dig it up.

  6. doesn't add up

    it doesn't add up. if there's a real cesar and he is rightfully upset about a troll highjacking him, then why doesn't he simply change his s/n and ignore the troll? there's something weird going on there, especially after reading last night's spectacle...

    Of course you know I didn't write 2:39.

    @Caesar, Julius: Our central library may have microfilmed newspapers, I don't know. We're just a smaller branch of the county-wide system. If you can give me the approximate dates, I can ask our reference librarian tomorrow.

    @ add up...it's called standing your ground and being who you are. Cesar is one of the most popular CNNers of all time. Vitually every single one of us adore him. Obviously someone is jealous. Me? he he....I'm just Philip pretending to be a frog in Julius Caesar's throat. (i'd say 'ribbit' but that's even getting old with me! he he)

  13. spay and neuter, people

    For the love of kindness: SPAY and NEUTER! Don't allow Mother's Day to mark the progression of 300,000 companion animals to the gas chamber because somebody thought puppies and kittens would be cute but nobody wants them after 12 weeks. Also, breeding an animal so you can sell puppies or kittens for $5-$200 each when hundres of thousands wait on death row for a family is an abomination.
