A cat, a mother of three kittens, adopted three orphaned ducklings and started nursing and caring for them them along with her own.
Ronan and Emma Lally, from Clare Co Offaly, Ireland, were surprised to learn that their cat took in the ducklings instead of harming them. "The minute the cat lay down the three ducklings run underneath her. She started to purr," Ronan said via independent.ie.
"We lifted her up and two ducklings were latched onto the cat. The cat has all the material instinct, she has her paw around them and it is just extraordinary."
"The cat thinks they are all kittens. The cat might notice when the yellow kittens get very big," he added.
