The Heartwarming Feeling of Fostering

Over the past years, we have been fed with many unique and unusual stories in the animal world. Have you seen news about a lion parenting a gazelle’s newborn? Or have you heard of cats becoming the foster parent of a duckling? Well, these stories sound so absurd, and seem like only possible in Disney movies. But hey! These kinds of stories do exist! These just go to show that the animal world is filled with ‘oddities’ that are very unusual, things that we have difficulty explaining. These things tickle our mind, and make us think if they really do exist, and if they do, can we experience it first hand? Some people may have experienced such wonderful event, while some could just experience such stories on television. What will your reaction be, if your dog adopts an abandoned kitten? You, most probably, would be touch to see how the dog is very much at peace with the kitten. Yes! Such things can occur. Though we are blinded and somehow brainwashed to think that the two animals will never go together, but in reality, they can live and love each other; and in reality, either of them could act as foster parent. Just with the thought, gives us the feeling of skepticism. We will never believe such things, even if being shown in picture or in television. But, such thinking should be slowly changed because it is possible to have a dog act as a foster parent to a kitten. Fostering could be a very hard thing to do because it involves changes in your usual lifestyle. And being foster parents is not exclusive for humans; it is being done even by dogs, which proves that they too have hearts. It would be a very heartwarming scenario to see a dog lick caringly to a kitten just the way she would do to her puppies, and it would certainly bring a feeling of happiness in our hearts to see them cuddle with one another, as the dog tries to give warm and comfort to the kitten. Certainly, dogs could make a perfect foster parent. Their good qualities are definitely endless, and any animal having dogs as foster parents are very lucky! Even in olden times, there were myths regarding dogs fostering babies, even if it is not their kind. Ever heard of the story of Remus and Romulus? Well, they are twins raised by a wolf.

Calamities such as typhoon, snowstorm, drought, or wildfire exist and become natural occurrences that predispose certain animals to risk of death. Animals that live in the forest, especially in the parts of Australia, often experience wildfire. Wildfire occurs when a fire becomes uncontrolled in a place where there is combustible vegetation such as in the countryside or in the wilderness.
