Animals have such nurturing instincts towards the young that they become parents to babies that aren’t even their own.
Like a cat who is called “the most responsible kitten in the world” after keeping a close eye on three newborns.
According to a post from the KC Pet Project, a rescue in Kansas City, Missouri, the six-week-old black cat was found with three newborn kittens, and the person who found them says the older cat has been caring for the babies. .
It is not known if the older kitten is a brother to the newborns or what happened to their mother. But the cat has clearly taken his job as his new guardian very seriously, and the KC Pet Project has dubbed him the “world’s most responsible kitty.”
“We think this is the cutest thing in the world,” they wrote on Facebook.
They were such a lovable family unit that no one could bear to separate them: they were all placed together in a foster home, where they will stay until they are old enough to be adopted.
According to HuffPost, the kitty responsible is named Binx and the kitties are named Ollie, Frankie, and Ziggy.
KC Pet Project spokeswoman Tori Fugate told the outlet that while newborns need milk to survive, whether from a mother cat or bottle-fed by humans, the male kitten did his best to care for them, and all they are “very good so far”. Now in a foster home, Binx continues to keep an eye on the little ones.
What a sweet and responsible kitty. We are so glad that these newborns had someone to take care of them and that they are now all safe and together.
