I just love stories like that!

It reminded me of an email I received a few months ago about a tiger that gave birth to 2 babies, but they died soon after birth and she became terribly depressed, so the zoo keepers brough in some piglets wrapped in tiger skins to take the place of the lost babies.

It really was a cute story, but turned out to not be true. The actual story is that the zoo actually practices the intermingling of species to create better relationships with other types of animals. Anyways, here are the pictures that came with the email. Kinda cute!

Oh, these stories are sooo cute :l*v:

I once saw on the TV that a bitch ' adopted ' a tiger baby. The tiger mom couldn't make enough mikl for both him and his brother, so he went to a home where a bitch just had puppies. And she took care of him just like her puppies. It was so cute to se him play wit his 'brothers and sister's' :lotsakuv:

Of course I have to post my pics of some foster kittens I had from a bout a year ago, trying to suckle from Jaspar. I heard this funny sucking noise while working on the computer and looked down to see Jaspar with these two kittens trying to attach themselves to his little boy nipples!! :lol:

Oh Jaspar, you're such a gorgeous boy :l*v:

He really does love cats, doesn't he?

We used to have 2 3/4 Persians, both boys and both from the same litter - we got them at 10 weeks so they weren't too young or anything but the one used to try and suckle from the other and if picked up, he'd suckle your finger LOL
