Bunny Becomes Mom to Six Kittens
All Headline News, November 2007

Aberdeen, Scotland - Left by their mother, six tiny kittens have found themselves being taken care of by a surprise new mom - a rabbit.

Melanie Humble, a nurse at an animal hospital, took the kittens home. She thought her pet cat would care for them. Instead they're being looked after by her pet rabbit, Summer.

"The kittens love their new mom. They don't leave her alone," said Melanie. "It's amazing. They climb all over her and look to get milk from her. She just sits there and lets them do it."

Now the kittens follow the rabbit everywhere. They can't bear to be without her.

"They're all so lovely together," says Melanie.
