Cat and Rabbit Work Together to Share Parenting Duties and Feed Each Other’s Young

A cat and a rabbit have become co-parents to both their litters, which were born days apart. Surprisingly, they are also feeding each other’s babies.

More than two weeks ago, Chrissy the cat moved her kittens into the rabbit hutch, making Amy the bunny an inter-species nanny.

One day, Destiny Hampton found Chrissy snuggling up with her own newborns in the hutch she had set up for Amy and her brood.

It was a shocking revelation for Hampton since she was unaware that the cat was expecting.

The photograph captured the moment when Hampton stumbled upon the unexpected sight of the cat and rabbit co-parenting.

“I was a little worried at first that they might fight, or hurt each other,” said the 47-year-old woman.

Out of concern for the babies, the owner of Roberson Creek Farm in Tobaccoville, North Carolina, who is also a wildlife rescuer, tried to separate the pair.

However, separating the pair proved to be a mistake, as both mothers ceased feeding their offspring due to the resulting stress.

The cat and rabbit were not just coexisting but also co-parenting their offspring, with Chrissy nursing the baby rabbits.

Chrissy often helps feed Amy’s young since Amy is only feeding her own once a day.

“They get along great,” exclaimed Hampton on social media. “They all want to be together, the babies and the mothers.”

“It’s so weird, because cats move their babies a lot (but) Chrissy… doesn’t.”

“I think maybe she knew that the rabbit mom wasn’t making enough milk and wanted to help her.”

Hampton was taken aback because Chrissy has a reputation for not being very friendly. Y’all!!! I’m not gonna lie. I got a little teary-eyed when she put her arm around the little bunny 🥹❤️ this is by far my favorite video I’ve taken so far. Chrissy is such a good mama. ##fyp##foryou##trending##cabbits##rescueanimals##rescuefarm ♬ Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now – Starship
