At last: an alliance has been achieved in bird-cat relations, and that alliance is the cutest.

In the new Ghostbusters, the line will be "ducks and cats living together." (via Imgur)

Cats and birds have been natural enemies ever since the first cat grew legs and crawled out of the sea (I'm pretty sure I have that science right). But now, there has been a stunning development in bird-cat relations — Della, a farmhouse cat in Ireland, has adopted three baby ducklings. She encountered the bird babies a few hours after giving birth to her kittens, and apparently her motherly instinct kicked in. (Also, if this is a real thing that happens when you give birth, do human moms try to take every baby home from the hospital?)
