    If this doesn't make you go awwwwwwwwwww nothing will!!


    In a zoo in California, a mother tiger gave birth to a rare
    set of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due to complications in the pregnancy,
    the cubs were born prematurely and due to their tiny size, died shortly after birth.


    The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery, suddenly
    started to decline in health, although physically she was fine
    The veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused
    the tigress to fall into a depression. The doctors decided that if the
    tigress could surrogate another mother's cubs, perhaps she would improve.


    After checking with many other zoos across the country, the
    depressing news was that there were no tiger cubs of the right age to
    introduce to the mourning mother. The veterinarians decided to try
    something that had never been tried in a zoo environment.


    Sometimes a mother of one species will take on the care of a
    different species. The only "orphans" that could be found quickly, were
    a litter of wiener pigs. The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in
    tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger.
