Summary (IBList user synopsis):

When her infant son dies, a generous and lonely woman takes in a stray tiger cub and decides to raise it as her own. She suckles the animal and soon it looks just like a boy. A nearby snake gives the woman a warning: if ever a mother accuses the child of being an animal, he will again take on his original form.
