Mews and Nips: Devoted Mother Cat Tracks Down Her Missing Kittens


When the staff at the Mill Road Vet Clinic in Whangarei, New Zealand, found a box of kittens on their doorstep, they did what any veterinary clinic staff would do: they took the kittens in and cared for them. When they came to work the next day, they discovered another cat hanging around the facility. The cat tried to sneak into the clinic every time the door opened. When they picked the cat up, they realized she was a nursing mom – and sure enough, she was the abandoned kittens’ mother. Mom and kittens were reunited and have been staying at a foster home until the kittens are ready for adoption. Read more about this heartwarming story on The Huffington Post.
