Mom will always be mom: 16 photos that explain what maternal instinct is more than a thousand words can

June 09, 2021 • By Alison Forde

We are all born in much the same way; our mother's give birth to us, the one who for nine months has kept us inside her belly and has eagerly awaited the arrival of a new life. A life to love, to pamper, to take care of, to raise in the image and likeness of their parents. Without detracting from the vital importance of the father figure, the love and warmth that a mother can instill in her child is unique and absolutely unrepeatable.

The maternal instinct, moreover, can be found in all its forms even in the animal kingdom; it's not only the prerogative of human beings, but also our animal friends know how to show affection and maternal warmth towards their off spring. Here are some very tender photographic images that are perfect testimony to this!

 Aren't my two cats gorgeous? I can't stop looking at this touching scene!

A mother who is truly proud of her little ones!

What could be more beautiful for a mother taking care of her puppies?
