All In the Family: Chicks and a Ginger Cat (Video)

All In the Family: Chicks and a Ginger Cat (Video)

A video shows a cat curling and cuddling up with a brood of chicks. The cat is an orange and white tabby and some of the chicks have similar coloring.

“Ginger Family” is the name of the video : Who would have thought a cat could be so kindly disposed to some chicks?

While suggesting that the “minute-long video is proof that felines and fowl can be friends,” the New York Daily News can’t resist a sarcastic jab wondering if the “cat had Chicken McNuggets in mind for its next meal.”

 

Some more stories about unexpected interspecies friendships on Care2 are about a baby kangaroo and a wombat sharing a pouch, the elephant Tarra mourning Bella the dog, the one-plus year of friendship between a cheetah and a dog.

If they can all get along, why can’t we humans, too?

Oh my goodness, 'just too too adorable'.....Do you think the chicks even know the difference,
they are in heaven in that fur ball....(lol)

Adorable Plus, so very sweet! Such balls of fluff and loud chirping!

Sorry, had put my previous comment in the wrong story as I had both windows up and then got distracted by the cat that owns me who was meowing loudly for my attention so I was typing in the wrong comment board. She was quite interested in the chirping and was meowing at me. Very loudly, out doing the chicks. I thought that I was putting my previous comment in the video "Daily Cute: Baby Sea Lion Grabs Turtle Taxi." If you haven't seen it, it is wonderful!

Delightful! There is nothing quite like 'Public transit!' What a fun video!
Dan B, instead of plastering many unrelated topics on Care2 with the same comment about becoming vegetarian why don't you comment on the cute baby sea lion getting a ride like everyone else? I don't care what you eat or if you give a spiel on what political party you support or if you want to dance...but you could at least watch the video (did you at least?) and offer a comment on the topic at hand instead of dropping the same comment in almost every unrelated topic/video you visit. I promise not to eat either the turtle or baby sea lion.

I did take time out to get out of the car and take a painted turtle sunning itself in the middle of a dirt road and put him by the water. However, what I put on my plate is my own business, not yours. Kindly mind your own broccoli! I agree with Valentina R when she commented in ‘All In the Family: Chicks and a Ginger Cat: Video.’ “People's diet is not being discussed here. It's only a cute video about cute animals. No one here is talking about veganism. No one asked you to talk about your vegan beliefs. Kindly shut up, will you?” Or Paul G: “If you want to open a discussion about vegans beliefs, why don't you create your own thread in causes? People's diet should not be discussed on a thread about cute animals.” I second and third that motion.

Thanks for sharing this lovely video!


@ Dan B.

If you want to open a discussion about vegans beliefs, why don't you create your own thread in causes?

Care2 really makes it easy to do so!

People's diet should not be discussed on a thread about cute animals.

You would have a more meaningful talk about it on your own page.

Please kindly do it where it won't be considered invasive, will you?

...This...is...way...too...adorable...for...words.
The way the chicks all gather around the kitten and cuddle him...so warm... uuuunnnngghh...
I think I'm gonna melt.

@ Dan B.

Good God, will you vegans ever stop? People's diet is not being discussed here. It's only a cute video about cute animals. No one here is talking about veganism. No one asked you to talk about your vegan beliefs. Kindly shut up, will you?
