Mia came to her foster home as a tiny orphan kitten. When she met Marlowe and Melba the rabbits, a special interspecies friendship started to brew. Next thing they knew was that they could not separate these furry friends.
Mia bonded with the rabbits so well, especially Marlowe, that they ended up adopting her. “Mia came and joined her BFF (bunny feline friend) Marlowe while he was in a bonding session with Melba (the rabbit). I adopted Mia for Marlowe back in June when he helped keep six orphan kittens company for three days,” said Liz via flickr.

A foster cat took on the mother’s role and became a protective father to a litter of kittens.
He was initially kept separated from the kittens. “But he showed a strong interest so I allowed him in the room more… He helps clean them, keeps them away from areas they shouldn’t be near, even licks them to help them use the bathroom…,” said rory2013 via reddit.

A stray cat mama gave a fosterer quite a surprise on her birthday.
Heather learned about a stray cat and her kittens that were looking for foster care. ”Someone called the Humane Society and made an appointment to bring in a stray cat and her kittens on my birthday. Because so many strays with kittens have been dropped off recently, and they were running out of foster families to send them to,” wrote Heather on her blog.
When the mama cat arrived, Heather was surprised by what she saw.
Cat mama didn’t just come with her own kittens. “She had taken on another litter of four kittens! Nine kittens! The second litter was only three days old and must have been abandoned by their mother right after birth. This sweet kitty brought them all back to her den and cared for them right along with her own babies. She doesn’t make enough milk for nine hungry mouths, so twice a day, we have bottle feed them for extra nutrition,” she added.

Meet Hamilton. He was rescued and brought into Langley Animal Protection Society (LAPS). When he arrived at his foster home, he was taken in by a much bigger furry friend, Maddy the dog.
Maddy has helped raise many orphan kittens that come to their foster care and given them the maternal love that the little ones desperately need.
When she laid eyes on Hamilton on the first day, she took to him and became the mother he didn’t have.

Petunia the cat was found with a big belly that was ready to pop. What she didn’t know was that her journey from the day she delivered her kittens till the day they were all adopted out was witnessed by thousands of people on the internet.
On March 18, six tiny babies were born healthy at Roche’s Fort Langley home of Langley Animal Protection Society (LAPS). Petunia, a young cat, jumped into the role of a mom right away and started grooming and nursing the little ones.
Thousands of people around the world watched the kittens grow from tiny fuzz balls whose eyes weren’t even opened to playful little kitties that wreaked hevoc around the foster home. Through a kitty cam, Petunia and her litter of kittens touched the hearts of thousands upon thousands. People couldn’t get enough of their cuteness.
Just a few days ago, they were on their way to their forever homes. It was bitter sweet to the caretakers at LAPS, but knowing they will be living in a permanent home with people that love them, it makes all the hard work worthwhile.

Two kittens are being fostered at St. George’s University and have been hanging out with the vet students in class. “Two kittens are being fostered until they are adopted. They needed socialization so the foster brought them to class for a few hours. I claimed one until they had to leave,” said reddit user avboden, vet student. “We had food, water and a litter box up in the corner for them.”
One of the kittens, a tabby cat decided to turn a laptop sleeve into his bed. “He actually curled up inside the laptop sleeve and slept there for 2 straight classes… with a potty break in between.”
“I learned nothing in class today,” he added.

These two itty bitties came to Tonis Kitty Rescue not too long ago. They found warmth, food and plenty of love.
“They like to be wrapped around one another for warmth and comfort…. They just like being next to one another all the time since they can’t see yet, but they will be opening their eyes and exploring the world soon,” said Tonis.
