Della, a cat who lives on a farm in Ireland just gave birth to kittens, stumbled across newly hatched ducklings.
Their mother was no where in sight and these little fluffy peeps were in danger from starvation and predators.
Della's new formed motherly instinct took over and one by one she gently picked them up and brought them back to her farm where they would be safe from harm.
Della doesn't seem to care that these ducklings are nothing like her baby. She cuddles and nurtures her feathered babies as if they were her own.
Amazingly enough, the ducklings are even able to suckle milk from her!
Though they are growing far more quickly than her little ones, Della, like all good mothers will still treat her little ducklings like her little babies, no matter how old or how fast they grow up.
