Nimra the cat - mother to chicks!

Look at this article in the mewspaper! I can hardly believe it! Between you and me, I think Nimra the cat may be a very intelligent feline who is biding her time. What do you think?

Mother cat takes seven chicks under her paw

A cat has succeeded in repressing her predatory instincts by adopting seven chicks to rear alongside her own litter of kittens. One-year-old Nimra, from Madaba in Jordan, has been watching over her unusual litter ever since the chicks’ mother died a month ago.

The mixed family, made up of her four newly born kittens and seven adopted chicks, lives in a cardboard box and has seemingly put its differences aside to eat, sleep and play together.

Wonders will never cease, honestly!

I think she likes those chicks because they are the same color as her furs. They are very silly.

Hard to believe, but I suppose if it's in the Times, it's true...

Now if those weren't chicks, and if they were instead creatures that might prey on her kittens, you'd see how accepting Nimra would be...

Simply amazing!

Wow, that is amazing! Nimra is obviously a very good mother. I would want to chase the chicks however - birdies are fun to watch!

Yet, they look so much like the mother cat... Perhaps it's a trick to get food to her kits when they are old enough to hunt?
