It seems to us that animals cannot be foster parents, but in some cases, they also show a maternal instinct for the offspring left without a mother. A good example is the fate of a cat named Mikey.
After a difficult pregnancy and premature birth, she lost her cubs.
Due to stress, the cat couldn’t find peace for itself, rushed about, called its kittens, but couldn’t find them anywhere. The owner couldn’t stand the suffering of her pet and began to look for help in an organization in Houston for the protection of animals.
Employees of this organization quickly found a woman who was feeding three orphaned kittens. In humans, they were awaited by mixing and bottle feeding, which many animals do not tolerate.
Why feed them artificially if a cat, so eager to be a mother, can take over their fate?
The orphan’s first meeting with the new mother went just fine. The cat immediately accepted the children as her own and began to wash them. Maternal instinct won , and Mikey had milk very quickly, literally the next day.
This ”co-operation” went well both for the mother cat and the orphaned kittens. What a genius idea!
