Earlier today, you probably noticed that I posted a link about the compassion of animals – I posted it on the blog page. Then, I saw this video about a dog nursing kittens. I’ve heard stories about dogs nursing cats, cats nursing dogs, but watch all the way to 1:40 – it brought tears to my eyes.
And, then, I wonder. Why do human mothers kill their young or mistreat them when animal mothers can be so tender to the young that aren’t even theirs?
Isn’t that a sad state of affairs? When an animal is cruel to its offspring or to another’s offsprring, we just say, “Well, what do you expect? It’s a dumb animal.” But, we’re suppose to be the smart ones – the ones high on the food chain. Shouldn’t we be better than a dumb animal?
I’ll get off my soapbox. Watch the video. Let me know if you cried in the comments below.
