A “mama” cat has been named Mrs. Doubtfire after being found on the side of the road taking care of a litter of abandoned kittens.
It started when workers at the Homeless Animal Adoption League (HAAL) received a report of kittens alone on the side of the road. They don’t usually make roadside pickups, but on this particular night, it was cold and rainy, so they made an exception.
However, when the rescuers showed up to the scene, they found the kittens weren’t abandoned after all. Sleeping in a blue plastic bin, they found the kittens nuzzled up against a mother cat. They brought the family into the shelter and found themselves with an unexpected shock when they took a look at the cats’ health measurements.
It turns out that mama cat wasn’t a mother at all. She was actually a he. Rescuers think the male cat may be related, either as a father or from a previous litter. Regardless, he stepped up to the challenge of motherhood when duty called.
Rescuers appropriately named him Mrs. Doubtfire because the name fits so well. The kittens aren’t hungry and the “mother” is healthy so everyone is happy.
