Today we were in the emergency room of the hospital when a cat rushed to bring her offspring in her mouth.
They cared for the kitten.But the mommy cat wouldn't let her out of sight and followed her everywhere the doctors took her.
The mother was given milk and food.Which certainly helped her relax as the medics started work.
Then the doctors sent them to a vet.After checking them both over, doctors at the Turkish hospital sent the duo to a vet.
Both of them seemed okay.But the doctors wanted to make sure.
But the story gets even better.According to one Reddit user, the doctor who sent them away to the vet ended up adopting the mother and kitten!
