Awww... how sweet!

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 10:36 AM

totally freakin' awesome! you gotta watch with sound the 'reenactments' from the old couple are hillarious! i love it!

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 10:36 AM

Early cat gets the worm? Sappiest video evar, perfect for the holidays.

Cute Overload delivers!

I feel like my heart just swelled up 5 sizes, Grinch style.

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 10:45 AM

How fantastic.

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 10:48 AM

OMG, that is amazing! And I don't know who's the cuter couple: the raven and the kitten or the little old couple!

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 10:48 AM

This is wonderful!! And I love the kitten's markings. I would have named it "Charlie" (Chaplin.)

That was one of the sweetest videos I've ever seen! What a nice couple to document it for us!

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 10:54 AM

Worth the 7 minute running time.

(when did Alan Thicke get so old?)

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 10:54 AM

Aw. Why "Cute or Sad"? Because the kitten was a parentless stray? Or because the video was shot long enough ago that the crow has passed on?

I know the scientific types say we're not supposed to 'anthropomorphize' animals, but what the heck else do ya call something like that???

I mean, other than ooogiecoootieswuggums, that is...

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 10:56 AM

wow. in vain i tried not to get misty, but i did anyways. so sweet.

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 11:01 AM



 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 11:03 AM

Methinks they piped in the purring, given how far away that kitten was in all the videos, but I forgive! Too sweet!

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 11:05 AM

If that isn't the sweetest thing ever. My heart is warmed my eyes are misted. Awwwwwww!

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 11:12 AM

Wow. Just... wow.

This is probably one of the cutest things I've seen! (and that's saying a lot, considering how long I've been reading this blog)

Crows are amazing birds. They are incredibly smart and social. They live in family groups and when a younger member moves and joins a new group it will come 'home' for periodic visits. People who've raised crows often report that they come back to visit their humans too.

Social animals need friends--that's why it's so sad to keep parrots and horses alone. This is fabulous proof!

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 11:25 AM

ZOMG those people live literally 10 minutes away from me!!!!!...I should totally go stalk them and see if the cat n crow are still there!

OMG! This was so sweet that it made me cry! I vote that this is one of the best and sweet stories posted on here! TRULY AMAZING STUFF!

See, we CAN all get along...

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 11:29 AM

That was so precious. I had to share with everyone I know.

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 11:37 AM

BTW, it's a raven, which are notoriously smart and sensitive animals that can be kept as pets.
This is sooo sweet, just in time for Christmas. The little old couple are just as cute - "weeell, ah don't maaand cats at all" - the art of understatement!

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 11:38 AM

I would have named the cat "Lenore".

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 11:38 AM

Aww...That's so awesome! Seriously, perfect for christmas time, adorable really. That crow was an angel that saved that kitten. Simply. I'm kinda speechless now...

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 11:39 AM

This makes me want a raven. At first the bird feeding the kit: "OMG"...then the crow cawing and warning the kit when he crossed the road!!?? I just...I...I wouldn't have believed it if I didn't see it! Just wow.

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 11:44 AM

I watched it twice and sent it to friends!

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 11:47 AM

I watched it twice and sent it to friends!

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 11:50 AM

sorry for the double post.
My three kitties, Teanie, Tito, and Buddy are actually sitting next to my shoulder on the couch and Tito the black & white orphan that we adopted at 2 weeks old was watching

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 11:52 AM

Why are folks trying to make this into a raven? It's a crow. Get your bird books and tapes out. I showed this to an ornithology professor and he assures me the crow is (or was) a pet, not some wild crow that takes care of a stray kitten. He has had several pet ravens and corvids over the span of his career. Nonetheless, it is a super cute video.

does anyone know where to find more miracle pets video? or dvds? did anyone see the episode with the pet pig who runs out in the road and plays dead to alert someone to the fact that its mama is having a heart attack or a stroke or something?

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 12:00 PM

The best part is when they prank each other. When the raven jumps out from behind the wall and scares the kitteh, I swear you could tell the raven thought it was funny.

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 12:00 PM

Whoa. It really IS reality-casual Friday. O.O

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 12:04 PM

anyone got a tissue?


Awesome video find. Both cute and heartwarming.

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 12:05 PM

SO great. Just what I needed to warm my heart while I'm stressing about law school finals. Thanks Meg, you knew just what I needed!

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 12:18 PM

Cutest old couple <3

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 12:29 PM

Yes, it's an American Crow. We tend to call them ravens on this side of the Atlantic. Bird species differ subtly across the world - sometimes a different bird goes by the same name. Crows, ravens - highly intelligent animals. Check out these famous ones : http://www.historic-uk.com/DestinationsUK/TowerRavens.htm

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 12:33 PM

That was just the sweetest thing. I love it when life gets weird in really good ways like this. :D Adorable when the kitten was asleep on the chair on its back with its legs dangling over - did anyone see that?

How tall are crows supposed to be as opposed to Ravens. We have these ginormous black birds at work that I swear have to be close to 12" at the head. And man are they noisy.

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 12:50 PM

I lol'd when the cat jumped out and scared the bird. Priceless!

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 12:51 PM

The cat and crow are adorable, and so is that couple!

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 01:15 PM


I wonder what happened in the winter though. . . or when the crow got old. *CRIES*

Crows can live a VERY long time as pets. I'm sure their life span is shorter in the wild, but they are still long lived animals!

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 01:47 PM

it was so cute, i almost cried.
i hope the kitty didnt get toorough when it was playing

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 01:49 PM

1. Cute old couple.
2. Vet lady's cute accent and adorable doctor's cute accent.
3. Crow and kitteh.
4. Marriage of 50+ years.
Four Stars!!

PS. Love the intermittent purring of kitten as transition between scenes. Nice touch.

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 01:52 PM

Well, I'm not surprised. A crow fed Elijah in the wilderness in the Old Testament.

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 01:53 PM

This was cute, but I could only watch a few moments of this because I have a severe Alan Thicke allergy. It's a rare and terrible condition! It involves twitching, itching, a burning rash all over the fronts of my thighs, and an unbearable urge to destroy every Growing Pains DVD. This extends to his son Robin and his awful singing.

But I did appreciate the crow and kitten love, and the sweet couple lucky enough to witness them! I hope they all have a Merry Christmas!

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 02:00 PM

Awwww!! That's so sweet! That's such a lovely relationship. We should take a lesson from this and stop all this havoc and chaos that we've started in the world. If two creatures who are by nature enemies can become friends, then anything is possible. Awesome post Meg :D

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 02:09 PM

This reminds me of me and my best friend. So different, but I guess that doesn't matter much.

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 02:33 PM

This is wonderful holiday, feel-good stuff, ain't it? I can't wait for the feature length! This pair is really so beautiful and special. I'm so happy it was caught on film by these two cool people. Yay!

 |  Dec 07, 2007 at 02:46 PM

Why dont things like that ever happen around me?!?!?!? Awesome video. I want that old lady in my pocket... :-D
