Have you ever seen those wonderful stories of the dog who took in a kitty and mothered him as if he were her own? Or maybe you heard about a cat that nurtured an orphaned duckling? These stories are ever present in the animal kingdom. Check out these gorgeous photos of monkeys, pigs, dogs, cats, and other animals doing what we could only wish for as people - putting aside their (often big) differences and loving each other just for the sake of it! They're all from a collection of incredibly beautiful stories of animals taking caring of each other, despite being interspecies, in a moving new book, One Big Happy Family: Heartwarming Stories of Animals Caring For One Another.
