Adorable inter-species adoption strikes again: Jane Etheridge, an Englishwoman from Middleton, says that the lone surviving chick from her hen's recent batch of 14 babes (a fox and untimely death claimed the other 13) was recently adopted by her cat, Snowy. Etheridge says that Snowy cleans and cares for the chick, now named Gladys, and that Gladys loves to play with her adopted dad: "[Gladys] comes in and bounces up and down in front of Snowy and he just stands there and takes it and puts his arm around her," says Etheridge, adding: "They are the best of friends, very much so." We couldn't find photographic evidence of Gladys and Snowy's friendship, but we hope this other cat-chick adoption will suffice. [UPI]
