Stray Cat In Turkey Brings Her Sick Kittens To Vets For Help

There's no love like a mother's love! And that just continues to be more apparent and true with each passing day. 

In a hospital in the Karabaglar district in Izmir, Turkey, the staff often feed a pregnant stray cat and they weren't aware she had given birth until she came straight up to them carrying her kitten. Let's call it mother's intuition, when it comes to making sure your little one is safe, parents' instincts will naturally kick in. And that doesn't matter if you're not human, as we can tell from this amazing story. 

In an incredible video currently making noise on social media, this stray mother is filmed carrying her kittens into the vet. In the beginning, veterinarians in Izmir didn't understand the stray cat's motive. The stray cat had brought them a kitten one day, and another one the following day, said to be constantly meowing.

This video may be on the older side and it may be really short but that doesn't mean we didn't fully enjoy those few moments enough to share it with all of you! It's exactly 11 seconds and all those 11 seconds are pure perfection. So much so that somehow, these 11 seconds made our day. We hope they make yours too! 

YouTuber, The Foxist, gave some background into the adorable moment they captured, "My newest batch of fox kits have arrived recently. This little guy is just too excited to see his mom. Sometimes they get so excited when they see their parents their bums wiggle so much they fall right over. We've counted six kits so far, we have five adults that live on our property so it won't be surprising if more kits move in soon."

This is such an adorable story! The mother cat, Nyang, recently gave birth underneath the porch of a craft workroom in South Korea. Two days after she gave birth, she and her kittens disappeared. A few days later, Nyang reappeared but this time, without the kittens. 

Where could the kittens be? Well, the craft workroom owner was worried and the weather was getting colder and colder. So, in a brilliant idea, they decide to attach a video cam to Nyang's collar, to see where she goes when demanding to go outside. You see Nyang go on a long walk and then end up in the craft room once again. Except, this time, the craft room is filled with Nyang's kittens! Nyang somehow hid her kittens in the very place that's been providing her love, warmth, food, and shelter. Just adorable all around.

Every pregnant woman with a pet in the house - be it a cat or a dog - finds herself a little worried about the pet's reaction to the little human growing in her belly. You may be surprised to know that cats, amazingly enough, for the most part, love babies. 

We've heard countless stories of cat owners explaining how their cat's behavior completely changed when they were pregnant - lying with them more often, protective, being gentle and kneading their pregnant belly. It makes sense, really, babies smell like milk after all. 

This video captured the exact gentle nature that cats have when it comes to pregnancies and babies. Cautious sniffs and the most gentle touches, we can already see that this cat and this baby will be the bestest of friends.

Gah! This video just gave us a toothache, that's how sweet it is! We love a strong animal connection and what could be stronger than the bond between mother and child

This beautiful, and sleepy mama, was trying to rest as her kittens laid beside her. Until, one little kitten, the mini-version of the mother itself decided to snuggle up even closer. Then after the kitten found a good spot, the grooming session had to begin and now this kitten is wide awake and looking to bother mom! Sounds like a true kid to us!

Oh, be still our beating hearts! Pandas are already naturally adorable but this loving footage is simply the cutest! Nothing in this world is more precious than a loving relationship between parents and children, for humans and animals. This lovely mama has a baby cub named Pubao, who has already grown into a kid! The way she looks at her baby is enough to melt hearts around the world.

This mama loves her baby and is constantly caring for it. It's a beautiful and intimate moment between mama and baby and we're lucky enough to see it. And don't worry, these two don't live in this small cage, they mostly live in a space similar to the nature of 3,000 square meters outside the breeding grounds and are not locked up in that cage all day long! 

Congrats on the beautiful baby, loving mama!

This is one of the cutest stories we've ever heard! And it's also the most literal, "my mom can beat up your mom" scenario we've ever come across! 

Meet Alena, a beautiful Lynx at the Siberian Zoo who has adopted three abandoned kittens. The kittens were left at the zoo's gates in a box with a note attached, "They left us!" Alena has previous experience at being an adoptive mother, and she's so very good at it. Alena is so loving with the three kittens, constantly watching over them and grooming them. Take about a motherly instinct. 

Sadly, the kittens cannot stay at the zoo forever, the zoo has already found new owners for the kittens and they will be at their forever home. 

This beautiful bond between Lynx and kittens won't be forgotten, we just hope this born to be mother gets her own forever cub someday.

Hyenas can be super duper cute! And a hyena cub? Always cute. 

Here's a mother who loves her baby and shows it by grooming and snuggling with the sweet cub. That moment when the cub flops down onto her.. endless squeals! Animal relationships with their mothers are just so gosh-darn special, we can hardly stand it. 

If you look closely, it almost looks like the mom is sleeping throughout the whole video. As if our hearts could handle any more cuteness.

Heartbroken Dog Who Lost Entire Litter Adopts Kittens, And Cares For Them

A heartbreaking tale with a happy ending. Sunshine Dog Rescue, a Non-Profit Organization located in Phoenix, Arizona, rescued a beautiful Australian Shepherd Mix named Georgia. 

Georgia was found living at a gas station near the border to Mexico. Georgia was pregnant, but sadly, none of her puppies made it. All her pups were born prematurely. 

Founder of the Sunshine Dog Rescue, Anita Osa, knew Georgia was heartbroken at the loss of losing all her babies. Osa told ABC15, "I've never had a mom dog lose a whole litter before. The best way I could describe it was she was frantic. It was so sad, she was looking for those babies. She tore up the toddler mattress we had her on, trying to find her babies." 

Osa quickly went to work and asked for help on Facebook. Osa was looking for any orphaned baby animals that were in need of a lactating mother. Osa ended up with three kittens who just so happened to fit that bill. 

Of course, with any interspecies integration, you have to worry about whether or not each animal would accept the other. Thankfully, Georgia and the kittens instantly bonded. Osa claims the moment Georgia sniffed the kittens, she calmed down significantly.

They do nurse on her. She cleans them and everything but the bond is strong. It's really something to see, she protects those kittens just as if they were her babies," Osa added. 

While we are heartbroken for the loss of Georgia's litter, we are grateful she found a family of her own with others who needed her. 

Check out the adorable videos of Georgia and her baby kittens below.

What a good girl! Meet Banner, a husky with a heart of gold! When Banner came across a box filled with newborn kittens, she immediately alerted her owner Whitney by leading her through the woods, to a quiet spot where they came across a sealed cardboard box. 

Inside the box, seven abandoned newborn kittens. 

Thank goodness Banner came and noticed her owner when she did! Ever since Banner discovered the kittens, she hasn't left their side. She's been caring and protecting them as if they were her own.

Lucky Paws is recording videos of cute kittens growing up from day 1 to day 100 -- this is day 38. And on day 38, little baby kittens are learning how to drink from a bowl -- just like their mama! 

One little kitten, named Cream, seems to have understood the whole drinking concept pretty quickly!

Stolen Teddy Bear With Recording Of Late Mother's Message Returned

Thank goodness for good people! 

In Vancouver, British Columbia, Mara Soriano was moving when she had items stolen from her backpack. The items were important documents, an iPad, and the most important, a teddy bear. This wasn't just a teddy bear, it was special. The bear had a voice recording of Soriano's late mother, who had passed away in 2019. 

Safe to say, it was irreplaceable. 

Soriano told CBC, "At hospice her voice was different. Much softer. Not the mom I grew up with. That bear is the last memory I have of her speaking in her normal voice."

Anyone else's eyes getting a bit (or a lot) misty? 

We're just so happy to find out this heartbreaking tale does have a happy ending. Read on to see the full story:
