Anything the dogs can do it seems cats are always determined to do better.
When you think it can’t get any stranger than a Wicklow dog became a foster parent to six ducklings, we now have the story of the Clara cat who is breast feeding three ducklings.
Husband and wife Ronan and Emma Lally sent a video to The Mooney Show showing their cat treating the ducklings as if they were her own.
Initially, the couple had thought the three ducks had gone missing when they could not be found one day, but were astounded to see them being reared and fed by their cat who had just had kittens of her own.
Normally cats would eat the ducklings, but with hormones running high, the cat fully adopted the ducklings with the little yellow birds more than happy to avail of her offer.
