Odd couples

Dema, a 26-day-old male endangered Sumatran tiger cub, cuddles up to 5-month-old female orangutan Irma at the Taman Safari Indonesia Animal Hospital, on Feb. 26, 2007 in Cisarua, Bogor Regency, West Java, Indonesia. Irma and another orangutan were rejected by their mothers while two Sumatran tiger cubs, including Dema, also born in the hospital, were also rejected by their mother, Cicis, and are being looked after by staff at the Animal Hospital.

A little macaque nestles its head on a pigeon that responds peacefully on Neilingding Island, China. Three months ago, the macaque was born on the island, but strayed from its mother. Luckily, it was taken in by work staff in the protective station and made the acquaintance of the pigeon. More than 2,000 macaques live on the island.

Isabella, a yellow lab at the Safari Zoological Park east of Caney, Kan., has adopted three white tiger cubs that were abandoned by their mother in this July 30, 2008, photo.

The German shepherd has got the cat where his mother would have grabbed him (after seeing nasty face of the cat I presume it’s a he-cat). The tiger cub and the orang-utan are succour to each other. The pigeon plays mother to the little macaque. The Labrador is really mother to the three white tiger cubs.
No need to explain how a motherly touch can do wonderful things for Homo sapiens too.

Nice post. If only human beings were so kind and loving to each other, and other races and creeds.
