A mother’s instinct is one of the most amazing things in the world and is not just limited to people. Recently a mother cat in Turkey suspected something was wrong with her babies and took them to a veterinary clinic for help. Now the cat’s video is going viral as vets treated the kittens.
A stray cat was filmed taking its babies to the vet in a video that made waves on social media. The veterinarians in the western province of Izmir did not initially understand the motive of the cat. A Karabaglar community spokesman said the cat meowed for a long time after bringing a second kitten. According to İHA, a mother cat brought her two kittens to the office of the Directorate for Health every day.
When the doctors and nurses finally checked, they found that the kittens’ eyes were puffy and they were having trouble opening them, Anka Haber reported. They called the Veterinary Directorate and gave medication to the kittens who had an eye infection. Soon the vet responded to the mother’s call and the stray cat and kittens were treated.
Watch the video here:
According to Daily Sabah, after initial treatment, the cats were handed over to the community veterinary department where they recovered. The stray kittens and their mother were later put up for adoption. “We were familiar with this cat. She was a stray nearby and we gave her food and water. We didn’t know she would give birth to kittens, ”said a clinic official.
“This is the first time that something like this has happened to us. We were both emotional and very happy to see that they have recovered, ”Haber Turk quoted a.
However, this is not the first time something like this has happened in the country. Photos went viral in early April 2020 when a mother cat rushed to a hospital to seek help.

She probably watched people bring cats there and thought to herself, “Maybe they’ll help my babies.”
