"Crow Adopts Kitten", short film
Here’s a two-minute short film shot in 2006 in Massachusetts: “Crow Adopts Kitten”.
A crow actually raised an abandoned kitten left in someone else’s back yard. And a crow is a bird, not "even" a mammal, but crows seem to have intelligence comparable to dogs and cats. They can solve problems, like dropping an acorn to break it.
When I was in an estate house, a particular wild crow, whom I named Timo, often watched me. On the day of Hurricane Sandy in 2012, he twice chased into my garage because he knew a storm was coming.
I had no damage from Sandy.
But a crow could wonder if I could protect his tree and his nest during a storm.
