In the New Zealand port city of Whangarei, a box of four small kittens was dropped at the Mill Road Vet Clinic. Three were striped tabby and one black.
The clinic staff brought the box inside and began to solve the problem of how to properly feed the babies.
And the next morning, they saw an adult tabby cat near the front door of the clinic, which nervously darted under the windows and looked for a way to get inside the building every time someone entered.
Eventually, one of the staff relented and opened the door for her. The cat ran inside, she was examined and it turned out that it was a nursing mother.
People guessed that there was a connection between yesterday’s kittens and today’s nursing cat and referred the cat to kittens.
The meeting was quick and gentle, the cat reunited with her cubs and, having calmed down, began to feed them.
Clinic workers believe that the cat is apparently a stray and someone saw her kittens and took them into a box, taking them to the clinic. And the cat ran looking for them and, perhaps, found them by smell or through her maternal instinct.
Or she was brought in the same box with kittens, but she heard people and jumped out. And when she returned, the kittens had already been brought inside and she started looking for them.
Currently, the cat and her babies were taken home by one of the employees of the veterinary clinic.
