Really amazing. I want to know how large this dog was, to somehow get a large baby all the way to her brood. Of course, they neither show a good pix nor give a description! She may be part Shepherd, or part scent hound, or all of the above, but I sure would like to know! I've had my own dog (not brooding, never did) adopt and "nurse" a tiny kitty, but I've not heard of dogs taking large beings on their own!

The dog was a better mother than the other bitch.

The dog instinctively knows what Obama chooses to not.

Yeah, 14 yr olds stink at motherhood. They should stick to jump ropes and hopscotch.

Exactly.

The dog followed its God-given instinct.

My Maine Coon Brian rounded up a bunch of escaped chicks once and herded them back towards their pen.

I love Maine Coons !!!! I met one only once and I thought it was the coolest cat I have ever seen. He acted like a big old friendly dog....

My Grandmother had a saying for bad Mothers. The cat’s a better Mother than she is. She must of known something about dogs being good with babies.

Well, now, but “HUND” is not “GOTT” spelled backwards.

Not a “saving a baby” story but I have one that starts meowing loudly when my blood sugar gets low and won’t stop until someone does something about it. It has woke me up several times when I had fallen asleep so yes cats can and do save people. :)

He was a great nurse-cat too. If anyone was sick, he would curl up to comfort them. When everyone was healthy, he was off about his own business, esxcept for the daily greeting. He’s been gone almost ten years now, and I still miss him dreadfully.

I wonder if you make funny noises or something. I have no idea what woke me up when my husband's blood sugar tanked Easter Sunday, but he sounded like he was having a nightmare, and then I couldn't wake him up at all. It was down to 33 before the ambulance got him to the hospital, and the doctor said if I hadn't woken up, he wouldn't have.

No I don’t think I do because he will do it when I’m awake and just don’t realize there s something wrong yet. Mine will go really low to where the meter says “low” which means it is under 25 but I’m still walking and able to function, not well but still am awake and moving.

Wish you could find the entire segment of “Funny Cats” from AFV or 1 of those silly video shows, which includes that. I think YouTube was made to pull it for copyright, because I can’t find it now and was sure it was on my favorite list.

There was a genuine story of a CT cat who was a nuisance because he kept attacking people - really, not just this cute thing.

But, that’s just the exception that proves the rule.

When dogs do it, it’s “miraculous”, brilliant, evidence of how much they care.

When cats do it, it’s explained away easily by some scientific thing.

What? They phone in cat scratch fever?

Of course one never really hears about a cat doing much anything worthwhile.

Point is I have no illusions about dogs. It’s dogs who rip people (and other things) to shreds. As well as do useful things and just generally can be great.

Cats are actually more neutral. Many are great pets, but yes, they don’t do much for us and also don’t do much against us either.

Chah! Must I be the one to explain this?

It's all quite scientific, you see.

When your kitteh smells the difference on your breath and seeping from your pores that indicates dangerously low blood sugar, it knows something is wrong. The kitteh smells this even in its sleep and wakes up.

Of course this raises no alarm in the cat, because it knows that it is a feline and therefore a god. It can find another pet human with opposable thumbs to open cans of food after you're gone.

So your kitteh rolls over and goes back to sleep.

Whereupon your kitteh is poked into yowling by the merciful paw of Dog Spelled Backwards until you are roused from sleep or whatever it was you were doing.

It's so simple when one who knows takes the time to explain, isn't it? ;o)

Isn't it simply amazing?

An animal with basic instincts values the life of a baby whereas someone as "nuanced and intellectual" as Obama refuses to acknowledge the baby's inherent right to life.

Obama is evil.

Absolute evil.

Reminds me of the dogs which now can tell when someone will have a seizure, and take care of them until it is over. The one I had heard of mainly stayed to protect the unconscious man.

I have never had a pet cat, but always felt they were smarter than dogs, and therefore been more wary of them! I do have some “issues.”
