Have you ever brought in an abandoned baby animal from outside? Imgur user Forestgalwithacrow did just that... with a baby crow! That certainly is not a kitten. She posted the story of her and her crow Winston. An unusual name for a female crow, but I'm not an expert on crow culture, so whatever.
Forestgalwithacrow found the bird on the middle of the road at night. She tried feeding it mushed peas and they got to be great friends. Winston the Crow was very friendly and sociable, as well as being very clean, going to the birdbath three times a day. Eventually, Winston's murder of crows returned and she was able to reconnect with her people. But she still visits Forestgal in spring!
