Pregnant Pig Escapes Farm And Gives Birth To A Whole Lotta Piglets In Nearby Woods

A dog walker was surprised and confused when she came across the pigs in the woods. According to a BBC report: "An animal charity is hoping to rescue a pig which escaped from a farm and gave birth to a litter of piglets in woodland. A dog walker was surprised to discover the pig feeding her piglets as she walked through woods near Ollerton in Nottinghamshire. Brinsley Animal Rescue said it hoped to rehome the piglets and their mother, whom they have named Matilda. They are appealing for the farmer to get in touch."

Matilda is thought to have escaped from a farm while heavily pregnant. The BBC report goes on to say: "Anna Aston, the dog walker who found Matilda, said she was confused when she first came across the pigs in the woods on Monday. 'I knew they weren't wild boar; they just looked like ordinary pigs,' she said. She contacted Brinsley Animal Rescue, which offered to help and has found a prospective home for the pigs at a Midlands animal sanctuary. 'Wherever she has come from, she deserves a safe and happy life with her little family. I think she has earned her freedom now.' Jon Beresford, who runs the charity, said he would need permission from the farmer to remove the pig or it could be regarded as theft." Story via BBC. 

Every mama deserves a happy and peaceful environment in which to raise her young! We are confident and hopeful that everything will work out and that Matilda will be able to live out the rest of her days peacefully in an animal sanctuary with her piglets by her side.

Stray Cat In Turkey Brings Her Sick Kittens To Vets For Help

There's no love like a mother's love! And that just continues to be more apparent and true with each passing day. 

In a hospital in the Karabaglar district in Izmir, Turkey, the staff often feed a pregnant stray cat and they weren't aware she had given birth until she came straight up to them carrying her kitten. Let's call it mother's intuition, when it comes to making sure your little one is safe, parents' instincts will naturally kick in. And that doesn't matter if you're not human, as we can tell from this amazing story. 

In an incredible video currently making noise on social media, this stray mother is filmed carrying her kittens into the vet. In the beginning, veterinarians in Izmir didn't understand the stray cat's motive. The stray cat had brought them a kitten one day, and another one the following day, said to be constantly meowing.

This is such an adorable story! The mother cat, Nyang, recently gave birth underneath the porch of a craft workroom in South Korea. Two days after she gave birth, she and her kittens disappeared. A few days later, Nyang reappeared but this time, without the kittens. 

Where could the kittens be? Well, the craft workroom owner was worried and the weather was getting colder and colder. So, in a brilliant idea, they decide to attach a video cam to Nyang's collar, to see where she goes when demanding to go outside. You see Nyang go on a long walk and then end up in the craft room once again. Except, this time, the craft room is filled with Nyang's kittens! Nyang somehow hid her kittens in the very place that's been providing her love, warmth, food, and shelter. Just adorable all around.

Gah! This video just gave us a toothache, that's how sweet it is! We love a strong animal connection and what could be stronger than the bond between mother and child

This beautiful, and sleepy mama, was trying to rest as her kittens laid beside her. Until, one little kitten, the mini-version of the mother itself decided to snuggle up even closer. Then after the kitten found a good spot, the grooming session had to begin and now this kitten is wide awake and looking to bother mom! Sounds like a true kid to us!

Oh, be still our beating hearts! Pandas are already naturally adorable but this loving footage is simply the cutest! Nothing in this world is more precious than a loving relationship between parents and children, for humans and animals. This lovely mama has a baby cub named Pubao, who has already grown into a kid! The way she looks at her baby is enough to melt hearts around the world.

This mama loves her baby and is constantly caring for it. It's a beautiful and intimate moment between mama and baby and we're lucky enough to see it. And don't worry, these two don't live in this small cage, they mostly live in a space similar to the nature of 3,000 square meters outside the breeding grounds and are not locked up in that cage all day long! 

Congrats on the beautiful baby, loving mama!

Unusual Coated Tiny Kitten Named Janie

Mellissa of Tiny but Mighty Kitten Rescue, located in Cornwall, Ontario, Canada, took a pregnant stray into her care and a few weeks later into foster care, the cat gave birth to a lovely litter of kittens. 

The new mama cat's name is June. And just a few weeks after June's birth to a litter of kittens, Mellissa got a call about a stray kitten found alone out on the sidewalk. The kitten found was ultra-tiny, weighing only a mere 82 grames. Despite being against all odds, this kitten was vocal and active. 

Mellissa immediately offered to help this tiny kitten with no home, knowing how much a mother's love would help this little kitten in need.

What a great mother, teaching her youngling the ways of the word! 

Lucky Paws is recording videos of cute kittens growing up from day 1 to day 100 -- this is day 38. And on day 38, little baby kittens are learning how to drink from a bowl -- just like their mama! 

One little kitten, named Cream, seems to have understood the whole drinking concept pretty quickly!
