Two weeks after Terra the stray cat came to her foster home, her belly started to grow. They thought she was just putting on weight, then a week later they heard noises coming from the cat room. “I looked under Terra, saw two kittens, and searched WikiHow on what to do when your cat gives birth. In total, 7 kittens were born,” foster mom wrote via imgur.
The house dog decided that he would be the father to the newborn kittens as soon as he saw the tiny fur balls. The weenie mix proactively tried to help the mother cat with her job. “Mama cat will straight up leave the room and let him care for the kittens. I guess he thinks he’s the daddy.” (reddit)
A few weeks after Terra the stray cat came to her foster home, 7 tiny kittens popped out of her belly.
As soon as the family dog saw the kittens, he decided he would be their father.
Mom is out on a break, so he comes right over to give the little ones baths.
7 kittens in total! The foster mom bought them different colored collars so she could tell them apart.
Watching over the kittens. Cat mama doesn’t mind the dog at all. “(She) would even just walk away once my dog started licking on the kittens, content at her free babysitter.”
Growling at the Basset Hound for getting too close
Keeping the kittens close to him. “I was watching TV and looked down and he had carried two out to chill with us.”
Here he is giving his kittens more baths.
Terra is a very content mama cat and happy to have both a human and a canine help her watch her 7 very playful kittens.
