From dogs mothering baby tigers to polar bears befriending huskies, the animal kingdom is full of amazing interspecies relationships that always blow our minds. If you are in the mood for such amazing stories, this lovely cat and her babies are right here to brighten up your day.
Everything began as Ronan and Emma Lally brought home some duck eggs. Their small farm in Clara (a lovely town in County Offaly in the midlands of Ireland) already had a lively collection of different animals, but the couple still thought that a few vivacious ducks would complete the picture. They were waiting patiently until the day these eggs hatched.
However, when that day finally came, the ducklings were nowhere to be seen. Ronan and Emma immediately searched for those missing babies. To be honest, they feared the worst, but what they came across was just far beyond their expectation.
The ducklings were staying with their cat Dalla, but not for the reason they imagined. Instead of having the baby ducklings for dinner, Dalla had adopted them and protected them as her own. Needless to say, the couple was amazed.
Dalla also gave birth to three cute little kittens not so long ago, so it’s safe to say her mothering instincts had kicked in and forced her into being the brave mom of them all. To Ronan and Emma’s surprise, the loving cat even breastfed the ducklings just like she did with her other babies!
Despite the touching scene, Ronan still wanted to separate Dalla and the ducklings for fear that the cat could harm them if her instincts kicked back in. But Emma, being a midwife, knew that the incredible bond between these fantastic creatures should never be broken like that. She just insisted to let the babies stay.
As the ducklings grew up, they quickly became way more independent than the baby kittens, but their love for their adoptive mama always remained the same. They were still a big family!
