this video shocked the heck out of me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1JiJzqXxgxo There is an couple somewhere in the USA and the3y notice a stray kitten who always hangs out on their lawn with a crow. The crow is basically being a mother to a black kitten. The kitten survives from the worms the crow digs in the soil. Its like an amazing miracle, these animals are meant to be enemies, Crows will eat smaller fury animals, Cats kill birds but these 2 are very close friends, The crow is a wild and the kitten is a stray cat so no humans influenced them to be close. They became friends on their own. I thought a cat and a dog getting along is the weirdest thing I see but this one is more peculiar and fascinating. How come these 2 animals gets along well while humans still doesn't love one another?

LOL I saw this clip on TV when the show it's from, "Miracle Pets", was still on the air (God knows how long ago! I was in elementary school). But it's one of the stories that really made an impression on me and I've remembered it for a long time. It was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw your discussion title. It's a very heart-warming story. The cat and the crow are probably long gone by now. At least the crow would be, but their story is still a very heartwarming one. I wonder what would compel a crow to take care of a kitten.

I think crows lives up to 40 years old, so yeah the birds could still be alive but since the video is around 1980's the cat could be long gone by now.

I never had a cat that is able to live up to 13 years :( My cat would have enjoyed her lifespan if my neighbor didnt poison her.

Oh my goodness! I love and adore both cats and birds. My favorite birds are foul, chickens, geese and ducks. I've had many house hens over the years and 2 pet roosters. The cats mostly left the chicken alone. However, I did have a 'love' develop between one of my cats and a duck. This duck was just so so so sweet. I was in love with him. ducks, you see, are natural comedians, they are sweet and kind and gentle. My cat would lie on his side and back, and allow the duck to kiss and groom him. they would make these strange funny noises. There were times I was really wondering what on earth they were thinking as they nuzzled each other. Sadly my duck passed away and that same cat really tried to get the rooster to do the same thing, except the rooster would just peck at him, lol. the odd thing is, that same cat is not starting a love affair with my iguana. When I bring my iguana out to be cuddled (yes iguanas love to be cuddled but be warned, this is not a pet for everyone, do research before you purchase one), that same cat comes over and nuzzles the iguana. I then let the iguana stroke the cat. In other words, iguanas are climbers, so if I let the iguana on the cats back, it 'climbs up' so in a way, gives the cat a nice back scratch. :)

Most of my cats always ends up killing ducklings and chicks. Its like its easier to make a cat and dog get along, how do you manage to make a cat and duck develop a relationship?
