I work at a pet shop.  I feed the animals and care for those that are sick.

Recently I isolated a rat because she was pregnant.  Rats often bite, but 
this rat was tame.  I named her Maia.  Over several days, I watched her grow 
fat, and each day I cared for her.

Seven days ago, her babies were born, and I was there.  I had never seen a 
birth before -- human or animal.  It was amazing.  Maia had nine babies!  A 
rat usually has only six.

Maia is a good mother.  As I watched, she built a wall to protect her 
children.  All that they need, she gives them.

I typically don't care much about babies, but this moved me.  Humans 
sometimes abuse their children.  But this animal is simple and pure -- she 
only knows she must care for her young.
