Special needs male cat adopts and saves abandoned kittens!
Henry iz an 8 month old kitty with a neurological disorder that makes him wobble when he walks.
So, when he turned into a mommy and stepped up to take care of these abandoned kittens, everyone waz shocked!
The six tiny three week old kittens were found in a cardboard box on Price of Wales, in Alaska, on the side of the road.
“Luckily, some children walking home from school heard them crying in their box,” Heather Muench of the Ketchikan Humane Society told KRBD.
The humans decided to step in and get these kittens some more help, and Henry waz there every step of the way.
“It’s really kind of cute,” said Muench. “The first thing he does is start compulsively licking one. He’ll spend hours in there, licking them, over, repeatedly. I think, ‘Oh my gosh, they’re not going to have any fur left.’ But, he’s really good at cleaning them up. I shouldn’t complain, because then I don’t have to do it.
The cat nurturing, it’s increasing their chance of surviving.”
Henry takes hiz job very seriously. “Yesterday, when I took them to work with me, he was very upset because someone had stolen his babies for the day,” she added. “When they came home, he was like, ‘Get them out of the carrying case. Put my babies back!”
Henry's paternal insticts haz greatly helped these kittens survive. With Muench helping with feeding and taking them to the vet, Henry takes cleaning, cuddling, and nurturing like a real parent.
Watch video: "Mama Henry paced and cried all day because Opposable Thumbs made off with his kittens and took them to the veterinary clinic. When they were returned, he hopped in to give everyone a thorough washing and make sure they were all in good shape. You can tell by the look he gives the camera at the end that he's saying, "Well, lucky for you they're fine, but don't let this happen again."
