It's a common saying that it takes a village to raise a child.

But according to one animal foster mom, what's to say that our village can't also include our furry kids?


Carley Sercovich, 32, a new mother and a long-time foster mom to animals in need, posted an adorable video on Instagram of one of her foster cats helping her breastfeed her then 10-week-old son, Foster, who was named for her love of fostering animals.

In the video, the foster kitten, Doppel, can be seen massaging at Sercovich's breast, effectively making the milk flow for Foster to breastfeed.

Sercovich confided:

"The first time Doppel tried to help me I thought it was very funny and sweet."

Doppel's actions were typical for a young kitten, doing what many call "kneading" or "making dough," which is common for kittens who find themselves in a relaxed and comfortable environment.

Nonetheless, the moment was adorable, and Sercovich felt the need to record it so she would have something to remember Doppel by after he was adopted by his forever family.

You can watch the video here:

Sercovich shared that Doppel and Foster had a lot in common in their time together, and that this became a frequent bonding occurrence between the three of them.

Sercovich said:

"Doppel was one of our first foster kittens and was born around the same time as my son. They were both around 10 weeks old when I took the video."

Doppel has since found a home with a loving forever family.

Sercovich confided that Doppel will always have a special place in her heart, and the video holds a special memory of him.

Sercovich said:

"Doppel was always such a sweet and affectionate foster kitten. I was so proud of him for being gentle."

Since Doppel's adoption, Sercovich has made it a regular practice of taking videos and pictures of her son, Foster, with their various foster pets, surely for ways to keep the memories alive after they've found forever homes, and to ensure that all of them do find those homes.

Here's another adorable video of Foster with the fosters:

The comments have been resoundingly positive and heartwarming on all of Sercovich's posts of her son with the foster animals.

The moment between the little boy and his foster kitten is such an incredibly sweet moment, particularly in a fast world full of negative news.

Hopefully Carley Sercovich will continue to share sweet videos and photos of her foster pets, and they will all find forever homes.

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
