Interspecies Comity For Sandy

This is just one of those Awww! moments, for me. I'm always touched by the love of animals - for themselves, for each other, for the world around them.

Here, for example, a Golden Retriever adopts an orphaned kitten and begins lactating to feed the kitten.
The family initially tried to keep Precious and Honey apart, fearing the dog would play too rough with the little gray-striped kitten. But Honey was elated at Precious' presence, wagging her tail and prancing all over the house trying to sneak a peak at her. Eventually, the family let Honey approach Precious, and the dog immediately took to her.
They're nice people, to take the kitten in, and she's a lucky little kitty to find such nice people and such a nice dog-mother. She had refused to drink from a bottle, and the people didn't think she was going to survive.

Thank you, PoliticalCat!

Reminds me of my Siamese male Keiki who adopted my second siamese male and "nursed" him for six months. It was very sweet to watch him mother this little kitten, especially after his initial hissy fit when the 9 week old kitten entered the house. I was afraid to leave them alone together. But I found Keiki in the bedroom licking the little one all over and then allowing him to "nurse." Amazing, the lengths creatures go to.
