The runaway duckling

Here’s a lovely video starring a brood of ducklings mothered by a gray cat named Prince Michael, and featuring an Ostracized Duckling, one Gabriel Aaron Duckworth. Watch Gabe’s travails as, unable to take the jeers of his four siblings, he runs away from home. Gabe has many adventures as the distraught Prince Michael searches for him. But no worries—it all ends well.

This is one in a series of Aaron’s Animals, and there’s another duckling video here.  There are three million views of this one.

    I was supposed to be working on my capacity planning presentation, but what’s seven minutes.
    It was worth it.

    I am guessing the cat is running a B&B. Very good story.

      There’s another video showing how the cat became the ducklings’ mother.
