A HEN, A CAT, AND A KITTEN

Northern Whig, Wednesday 10th June 1936


A cat, belonging to Mrs. Scott, 39, Sandown Road, Belfast, selected a nest in the hen-house in which to rear a kitten. A hen went to the same nest when she, too, wanted to rear a family.


Finding the cat and kitten in possession, the hen adopted the kitten, and now sits on it all the time. The cat lies contentedly by.


When the photographer tried to get the kitten in the picture the hen flew at the hands which attempted to touch it. The cat, tired of the dispute, seized the hen by the neck and pushed it down until quietness reigned.
