Being a mama is no easy work. Khaleesi the mama cat has definitely done her share of parenting when she was pregnant and rescued by Challenger’s House.

Fosterer Robyn Anderson wrote: “On April 13, 2013, Khaleesi came to us; she’d shown up at a family’s house, and the vet told them that she was pregnant. They fell in love with her and wanted to keep her, but the other family pets weren’t having it so she came to us.

‘Khaleesi’ is the title of a character from Game of Thrones. Her kittens are named after dragons; Khaleesi is the Mother of Dragons.

In the evening of May 1, 2013, the dragons arrived! Khaleesi gave birth to four kittens of her own. She also adopted a small kitten who’d been born earlier in the day, and whose mother and siblings were lost in an accident. There’s a brown tabby girl (Ruth), white and orange girl (Ember), gray tuxie boy (Puff), black tuxie boy (Norbert, the orphan), and a buff boy (Scorch).”

Khaleesi the cat mama named after a character from Game of Thrones came to Challenger’s House with a very pregnant belly and a ton of love.

Khaleesi also adopted an orphan kitten, a tux, who was in need of some motherly love. She was very protective of her babies, keeping them safe and fed the whole time.

Even during a brief break, the kittens continued nursing. There was really no time to rest for the busy mama.

A mother cat who just gave birth adopted two orphan baby squirrels. “We found a baby squirrel under our porch with no signs of a mother. He was shivering and barely breathing. We took him inside,” the human wrote via reddit. After consulting the vet, they put the little squirrel next to the mother cat, hoping she would accept it. It didn’t take long for the cat mama to notice the little baby squirrel. She immediately took it into her care and started nursing it along with her own kittens.

“Two days after the first squirrel, she came back from under the porch with another one… she carefully placed it next to the kittens and squirrel #1.”

A cat adopted a litter of baby rabbits she found in the yard, and started nursing them as her own.

Reddit user AliasLloyd wrote: “My friend’s cat adopted some baby rabbits. Her kittens got big enough so they gave them away. The cat then found these bunnies and brought them back to the same box that her kittens were in. She’s been nursing them and cleaning them.”

When they tried to take the bunnies back to the rabbit mom, their cat herded them back to the box. “Watching a cat herd a tiny bunny is one of the stranger things I’ve seen…”

Two tiny 5-day-old orphan kittens have found a new mom, a dog named Zelda, who became the mother they never had.

“The five-year-old Chinese Crested has ‘adopted’ two young, stray kittens that were abandoned by their mother and brought to the Burlington Humane Society.”

The kittens are very young and require specialized care. Heather Ashcroft-Hill decided to foster the two baby kittens and feed them around the clock but her dog Zelda thought she would offer some help.

“I let her see one kitten and let her sniff it, and she immediately started to lick it and nuzzle it. She went to the other kitten, who was still in the carrier and immediately tried to get in with her, which was hilarious because the carrier was the size of two kittens. I got a bigger container for them, and she immediately got to work and cleaned them head to foot, and cuddled them,” she said via insidehalton.com.

The two kittens are thriving having two care takers there for them at all time. “It provides psychological well-being and comfort,” said Adrienne Gosses, shelter manager. “Normally, we just have people hand feeding them and we give them a stuffed animal to snuggle with. That does not compare to the love and attention and affection that Zelda gives them. That makes them well-rounded kittens and helps with their brain and behavioral development.”

The kittens will be up for adoption when they are big enough. You can follow their updates on Facebook.
