Once we parked we started walking and in seconds. We saw a recycling container on the curb Inside the containers staff found four kittens. No older than five weeks old all cuddled close to their mom for warmth according to the social media post mama cat was glad to see them mom was quiet and looked up as if to say Thank God you found us it explained Aj al personnel covered the cats container with a blanket and ferried them away to the rehoming center once there a closer inspection of the basket revealed there were in fact six kittens and Fortunately, every one of them was well, despite their ordeal Recalling the state the little kittens were in the h al Facebook post read they look good clear eyes and noses And we’re eating on their own. We moved some cats around and squeeze them in seven more to add to our family The next day the staff turned their attention to checking over the kittens mom and it was then that they got a big surprise It turned out that mama wasn’t mama at all. That’s because he was actually a male Writing on Facebook H al later explained he could have been the dad or a big brother from another litter but to those kittens he was their protector and Surrogate mom he groomed them and gently played with each one The staff at H al decided the cat needed a name fitting of his surrogate status as a result. They called him mrs Doubtfire after the famous Danny from the 1993 film of the same name now all they had to do was find names for the six kittens in his However, that wasn’t the end of mrs Doubtfire story soon after he arrived at the center HAL staff noticed that his breathing was irregular He was later diagnosed with diaphragmatic hernia, meaning his intestines and stomach had been shifted into his chest cavity The condition usually occurs in cats that have suffered major traumas such as being hit by a car or physical abuse So it seemed likely that mrs. Doubtfire had suffered in the past. He now needed up to $8,000 worth of surgery to put his organs, right? However, the operation was intensely risky as A result those caring for mrs Doubtfire at ajl decided against putting the cat under the knife a vet gave the cat a 65 percent chance of surviving the procedure and Since the feline father-figure was comfortable and could still have a long life. They decided to leave him be and Thankfully their risk paid off after looking after his six kittens mrs Doubtfire finally found a forever family to care for him for now His hernia is under control and judging by images from his new home. He appears happier than ever

  1. My 3 kittens when they were still feral had a male cat taking care of them, too. I named him Gizmo. He was very protective and loving. Even of the one male kitten. The kittens were 6 months old thereabouts when Gizmo died of unknown causes, and they decided to adopt me after I got them fixed. Gizmo is in my backyard now, and the 3 kittens in my home. That was last year.

  2. Ohh snap. Get them !Your right. …..Or. ‼️Must see before this video is deleted😱‼️. Never seen one it happened to either💩

  3. You can’t always tell a female cat from a male cat:it is what is in the back that determines a male from a female;not manes,big heads,size of cat.

  4. CAN YOU GET ON WITH THE STORY? YOU GO ON AND ON ROUND THE STORY THEN WHAT? WHO CARES IF IT WAS RAINING? IT'S 3.03 AND YOU STILL DIDN'T STRT YOUR STORY. A REAL TURN OFF. STUPID STORY.

  5. Vaccination is not as widely and unquestionably accepted today as it was in the past. Many pet guardians and veterinarians believe we have taken the concept much farther than its usefulness warrants. In twenty years of veterinary practice, I have made the transition from believing strongly in the protective power of vaccines to becoming continually more certain that they create at least as much illness as they have ever prevented. In truth, I now consider vaccination to be tantamount to animal abuse in most cases.

  6. I had one male cat who was always able to befriend females and their babies.
    I use to call him, Uncle lol

    He would play with them, clean them, and snuggle with them, he loved kittens, which is just cute 😺

  7. If they were founded in 1989 then they've been operating for less than twenty years. So…they've been working for more than twenty years. Uh, no. The math doesn't work.

  8. Thank you Mr. Doubt fire for caring for the sweet party of six kittens, PRAYING you'll get healthy and strong in your new HOME!😊 WITHOUT you those babies probably wouldn't have made it!😊

  9. Feline AIDS?? Y'all don't know jack about cats. FIV, its proper name – feline immuno-virus is caused by a retrovirus, and it progresses much like human retro viruses. But there the similarity ends. Cats with FIV can live long lives, if they are 'only cats' in a house, and are not allowed to bite or scratch other cats in fighting. Cuts are one way the virus can be transmitted. Nobody says feline AIDS anymore. Get with it. It shows you need to do some homework, Robo-dude..

  10. It is a beautiful story. Instead of a mom there was a loving father figure. I'm glad they found him a forever home and hope all the kittens found their own loving families.

  11. I think The Man that call the puppy a monster didn’t mean it they people takes thing the wrong way if all would we help look after when we can what different it would make I thank you Mr

  12. I was fully was expecting the mom to not be the mom, but wasn't expecting him to be a male cat. So…. did they give the kittens milk then? They must have been starving to death already, and if it was a while before they figured out the adult cat wasn't the mom, they'd have only gone even longer without being fed.

  13. Johnny J, I thought the same thing. I'm glad it wasn't. It just goes to show though, male animals whether two or four-legged are willing to take care of the little ones when mom can't or in the case of the two-legged ones, won't. This was a good story. I bet they won't assume it is the mom anymore 😊.

  14. That was an interesting but pleasant surprise. He was simply a good dad. I can understand that. Kittens are so delicate and adorable his parental instincts were awakened. It is a sweet story. I hope all the kittens found homes too. And I hope he was given a shorter name.

  15. I have fostered kittens before, their mumma was not coping & became aggressive towards them at only 6 weeks. Then my big boy Teddy (cat) came in & started looking after them. He actually began lactating to feed them.

  16. Who writes these?!? You always take too long to get the point, and repeat repetitively again and again. Sometimes unbearable to watch!!!

  17. Please make story short give little informations than the conclusion 😄😃😃😃😄😄😄😃

  18. Someone from China just sent me this message. It makes me so damn angry. I wonder what do you and your readers think?

    From Hong Shi: “I don’t think it is inhuman or savage to eat cat. But I think you are rude in calling people inhuman or savage. I hope you realise human lives by eating meats of dead animals and dead plants. That’s the way the way world is. In any case, cats and dogs are carnivore. Why don’t you start asking them to stop eating meat. You are judging others because you like cats and dogs, judging others by your own preferance, and calling people savage or inhuman is rude.”  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9rNm9MkhvQ&lc=z23quvegblf5szuov04t1aokgx0o30tlig32mhcl5ynrbk0h00410.1552427408704639

  19. I rescued two kittens from the woods, and our adult female hissed at them. Our adult male cat warmed up to them immediately, bathed them, and he let the kittens sleep with him.

  20. Hi Australia here…I had a kitten given to me many years ago ,and i loved it very much , however i was in a block of flats and up stairs there lived a young boy age 9 (A bit of a brat) with his mum, now all was well but one morning the kitten got outside without me knowing and i heard him crying and went outside and saw this boy with him in his hands running up the backstairs he stood there at the top and when i questioned him about my kitten , he threw my cat as hard as he could through the air to the back lawn where the kitten hung up on the cloths line and then fell i was so shocked I screamed and the boy ran , i found my poor kitten badly injured and took him to the vet , the vet wanted to put him down he said he would never walk and had internal injuries, i refused i had a feeling that with care he could still live a long life after recovering, the vet said it was up to me to put all that effort into it,. And I did ,for a year i cared for him and got him to walk again taught him to go to the litter himself and even dig the hole. That cat thought of me as his mum and he was the best cat companion i ever had, yes his insides were in the wrong place and he had herniers but he lived a long time into old age, and had a healthy happy life.And it was worth the effort as he gave me all the loving companionship he could during my own illness. love was paid with love in return.

  21. I had a feral Mom under the porch. One of her first litter kept watch while she hunted and fished. She was especially fond of the huge catfish that lived under a broken seawall. So one day, big brother was keeping eye over the next litter when a rattlesnake made its way into the yard. He was bitten! The last time I saw him, he would not come near but gazed at me as if to say — I loved you but have to go away now. The mom got her revenge one Saturday morning. The snake turned up near the porch half eaten. Twice I tossed it to one side so it did not get "mowed" that afternoon. She obviously did not appreciate that, so she snipped off the rattle for me and dragged the rest of the snake under the porch to feed the litter whose big brother had given his life for them.

    Today, that mom is in inside kitty and out of the kitten-business. I'm still sad that the sweet older brother was taken by the snake. He'd have made an awesome inside kitty.

  22. I had a Tom that would crawl into the birthing box and take charge of the kittens whilst Mama Cat left the room to eat, drink, and use the box. When she returned, the kittens were usually freshly bathed and sound asleep on his rather rotund belly.

  23. And when, oh when, will people (yes, narrator of this video!) start to make the distinction between HIV and AIDS? Just like with humans, Feline HIV, or FIV is NOT the same as AIDS. This misconception, (and guys, we’ve had 37 years now to learn the difference!) is incredibly stigmatising, equally stupid and ignorant. So, please stop saying inane stuff such as “Aids-test” or testing against (cat)AIDS”. HIV is not AIDS and AIDS is not HIV. HIV is always the precursor for AIDS, but not everybody with HIV develops AIDS. By the way, AIDS is not a condidion, but an accumulation of symptoms and values. Thanks. Other than that… this is a sweet video.

  24. I love Mrs. Doubtfire!! Great name for a great kitty. It was wonderful that he watched over the babies. And it was good that he got q good home. I'm happy he survives without that surgery and I hope he remains healthy. Bless you Mrs. D.
