In addition to her maternal instinct, this mother cat has also shown great savvy.
In Turkey, a cat moved everyone as she walked into a hospital in Karabaglar district, Izmir, with her newborn kitten in her mouth. And for good reason, this mother cat went to these places to ask for help for her kitten.
The scene, which was filmed, and which you can see in the video below, shows hospital staff shifting to allow them to pass through the building.
“We started seeing patients in the morning, and she showed up with her kittens. She asked for help, meowing for a long time. We were surprised,” relates one of the health workers to local media. .
A familiar place for the cat
And if the feline came here for help, it is no coincidence. Indeed, this stray cat had already been helped by the staff of this same hospital before who had taken the habit of giving her food and water. “We were giving food and water to this mother cat living in the street” specifies the health worker. And to add that they did not know then that she had given birth to kittens.
The kitten was suffering from an eye infection
It is thus easier to understand why, when she felt that her baby needed to be taken care of, she did not hesitate to come here. And we can say that she had flair. Doctors and nurses, who examined his kitten, discovered that he suffered from an eye infection which prevented him from opening his eyes. A nurse then applied drops to her eyes to treat her infection.
Thanks to the treatment he received, the kitten was then able to open his eyes normally. “We sent the cat and the kittens to Uzundere for additional care” then specifies the agent, still surprised by this unusual call for help: “this is the first time that something like this has happened to us”. The medical team is also delighted to know that the mother and her kittens are now cured.
