Sad yet cute animal photo story.

Saw this on facebook this morning and thought I'd share.

The backstory
In Thailand, a tiger gave birth to 3 baby tigers. Due to difficult pregnancy, babies were born prematurely and due to their small size, they died shortly after the birth.
After recovering, the mother tiger suddenly started to lose health, although physically she was fine. Veterinarians believed that the loss of her litter has caused depression. So they decided to put babies from another tiger with her, and perhaps, her condition would improve.
Unfortunately it turned out that it is impossible to obtain tiger babies of the right age for a grieving mother.
But the solution was found, it is on the photo!

You're welcome Duffy. It made me sad a little and then smile a bunch.

My mom had a piglet when she was a kid that they had gotten from friends that lost the sow, my grandpa's female bird dog had a litter of pups at the time and Lady took the piglet, Porky and raised him with her pups. I should ask my mom if she has pictures. They ended up keeping that pig until he died because he'd pretty much become a dog/pet and they couldn't stomach the thought of eating him.

The thought did cross my mind when I looked at the pictures a second time... just making sure they're over ready I suppose??

What a great story! Do you suppose the piglets will forever have to dress-up in tiger costumes?

Oh my goodness! That is just so freaking cute! She looks so happy with her baby ummm...Tig-letts!

This is going to sound gross, but the tiger shirts that they are wearing, are they the baby tiger's fur? That way the mom can smell her babies and accept them? Or are they just cute shirts?

Tiglets! That's great CL! I would assume it's real hides for the smell.
