Cute kitten has a protective wolf for a mother

(CBS) - This is one of those videos that is short, sweet and very surprising. Check out this cute kitten with a rather unusual and protective mother.

I don't know why, but I have a strange feeling other cats won't be messing with that kitten!  So do you think she'll grow up meowing or howling, though?

In all seriousness, it's interesting to see how different species of animals will sometimes interact with each other, particularly mothers around children. What are your thoughts? Leave me some comment love below to let me know.

UPDATE: Some helpful commenters have pointed out that the mother in the video is probably not full-blood wolf, but likely a mixed-breed. Thanks so much to knewster and Dgunner!
