What happened here??


This was from a friend of mine, who also sends me interesting little tidbits. My first thought, before I read the text was she was in the wrong place at the wrong time... but after reading I learned she was just being helpful by standing in for a run-away mom!!

One week after being born, six baby skunks were abandoned by their mother. Luckily, we had just weaned five kittens off of our resident farm cat a day before and hoped that perhaps she might take them on as her own. She was reluctant at first, but she let them nurse - a positive sign. Two weeks have gone by and the six little "Stinkers" are thriving and their new mom couldn't be happier. She has become quite devoted to them and even carries them around to show them off to visitors

Goodness, if I weren't so tired I could think of a life lesson in this. Think about that..how can this apply to us...and blog it! I know you can do it!
