Cat's natural enemy and best friend
Cats and mice are considered natural enemies, but a warehouse of
a children's clothing market in china has staged a scene in the
real-life version of "A cat loves a mouse". On the morning
of April 11, a woman surnamed Zhao said that the cat in the warehouse
of her unit had caught a mouse outside and kept the mouse and her
kittens together after her birth.
The cat was brought to the warehouse specifically in order to catch
rats, as rats were very rampant in the warehouse. Just three days
ago, the cat caught a grey mouse, but surprisingly, she didn't eat
it, instead raising it with her kittens. Seeing this, a staff of
the unit threw the mouse outside the warehouse, but the cat got
the mouse back and put it in her net again.
What's more, the cat pays special attention to this small mouse.
As long as the mouse is not within the scope of her vision, she
will immediately stand up to look for it anxiously.
Experts say this cat's behavior is certainly a special case. They
point out that many animals will present some changes in behavior
and character during breastfeeding. Some will have a particularly
strong awareness for the protection of infants, with the manifestation
of special maternity. Some will even take an infant of other species
as their own babies mistakenly and conduct breedfeeding and nursing
care to them.
