Rabbit mom to kittens

Six kittens abandoned by their mum have found an unlikely replacement - a pet rabbit.

Six tiny kittens make a fuss of their new 'mum - a pet rabbit /Rex

The tiny kittens were left all alone after their mum decided she couldn't be bothered feeding them.

They were taken in by veterinary nurse Melanie Humble, who thought her own cat would mother them.

But instead they're being cared for by her rabbit Summer.

Now, they've fallen in love with their surrogate mum and refuse to leave her alone.

Melanie, 29, from Aberdeen, said: "It's amazing to see. For some reason they just took to the rabbit instantly and thought she was their mum.

"They started climbing all over her and were looking to get milk from her. She just sat there and let them do it.

"Now they follow her everywhere. They can't bear to be without her. They're all so lovely together."

Have you seen the one where a mother tiger loses her Kitten and becomes depressed and lonely. Vet staff were concerned for her health and life. Well, someone had baby piglets who had lost their mother.

They came up with the idea of wraping their bodies up with faux tiger fur and putting them with the mom tiger.

Well, the mother and babies took to each other. The tiger mom acts as these are her actual babies.

They pictures are just wayyy to cute.
