Cats with babies rarely take other kittens that need a mother. However, it is different with Aspen the cat. This exceptionally gentle and loving cat was rescued from the streets of Texas ten days ago.
She was taken to a shelter so that people could properly care for her and her little babies.
In this shelter, other kittens did not have a mother to take care of them. People did their best to feed them with syringes and bottles, but they needed natural cat milk and the warmth of their mother.
When shelter staff got to know Aspen, they realized she was so friendly and sweet that they might want to offer her other babies. They came up with the idea that the cat could adopt Aspen and take care of her.
And to everyone’s delight, Aspen accepted everything! This is shocking; real cat lovers know how impossible this is. However, Aspen is a receptive mother cat.
At one point, she took care of eight kittens from four litters!
Her three and five others needed a mother. Perfect.
Aspen did not differentiate between her and the other kittens at any time? She nursed them, licked them and gave them all the warmth they needed.
Wegge, one of the shelter’s employees, provides all-around support to Aspen in feeding the eight kittens, giving them food in a bottle.
Aspen is a wonderful mother who transfers her love to all the babies, whether they are her own or adopted. Everything goes perfectly, and there will be no problems until the kittens are big enough to not need Aspen’s help.
This is a beautiful story that inspires everyone.
