I don't think I've ever seen anything like this:
Crows are cheeky sods, mom has one that will come to the door demanding food, benji can walk right up to it.
Does he ring the doorbell?
Hahaha, that was so great! I always like stories like these.
I was a little worried when I saw them wrestling! That could have easily gotten out of hand.
MathIsHard has a softest spot. That was really sweet.
Moe the crow rules! I loved that clip, thanks for posting it.
Most excellent! Now that's a cat that has something to crow about.
Same here. That's almost a Baby Huey situation.
Lol. That clip was really funny. I thought it was most amazing that the crow was actually feeding the cat.
I would like to see what happens when the cat is full grown.
I hope this has a better result than this story.
Talk about a smack in the face.
Well, the crow and kitten stand a much better chance in someone's backyard in the suburbs. Maybe they will fare better than the lamb and the lion.
What is it that makes these pairings cute anyhow? My fuzzy gene seems to be broken.
I just think they're interesting because they are rare. There doesn't seem to be any reason for the crow to take this kind of an interest in the kitten, so it makes you wonder why something like this would happen.
Also they are considered "natural enemies," species-wise (e.g. cat & bird).
I think these situations humanize the animals involved, and can either justify one's belief and hope that biology need not be destiny, or challenge one's belief and hope that biology is destiny.
Either way, they pique our interest.
I can't wait to see it!
I'm with you... Clearly this crow is crying out for a suicide intervention! I didn't realize that crows even had suicidal thoughts until now.
I am curious about this also. I remember my psychology of personality professor saying that animals do not have emotions. I immediately assumed he had never befriended a pet. Didn't people at one time look at other people from 'uncivilized' cultures as animals? It was often the practice to treat them as such. So how can we gauge the possible emotional response of an animal such as a crow, especially in situations like this? Is it some haywire, but completely natural instinct; or is this a display of intentional compassion and perhaps moral behaviour?
I hope not. I don't want to be a vegetarian. That would give a whole new meaning to eating crow.
This is very interesting. An avian adopting a mammal. Quite strange.
Thats really sweet. I saw this a while back. I love crows since they are very intelligent animals and theres a pair that nest in a tree outside my window that have lived in the area for years. It was good seeing them rear a chick the year before last. I hope they have another this year and I wish they liked me enough to be friends with me and my cat (although I don't think Rosie would be as good with the crows).
