What a wonderful video. Animals will take care of any baby that is around them.

Many animals have the mother instinct after giving birth to their own babies. I have had instances where my cats would take care of each others babies. Given the opportunity, they may even use the mother instinct for another species. I even have male cats that babysit the kittens when they go outside for a while and keep them in line. Wonders never cease.

What makes this adorable video even better is the comments from Care2'ers like Mary C, Anne G, and Ruth Ann W, who really understand cats. ツ
And, of course, anyone I missed with the same sentiments.
