Mommy cat adopts abandoned puppies

Miss Kitty is a female cat in South Carolina who lost her litter of kittens.

Meanwhile, a neighbor’s dog gave birth to five puppies, but refused to care for them.

So Miss Kitty carried the puppies, one by one, to her hiding place underneath the house, and adopted them as her own.

Miss Kitty’s owners thought it better that she should care for kittens. So they put a call out for abandoned or stranded kittens, and found two, which they brought to Miss Kitty.

Miss Kitty immediately adopted the kittens, but instead of abandoning the puppies, simply added the kittens to her brood, whom she lovingly nursed and groomed.

Veterinarian Dr. Andrew Holland said that while cats have been known to adopt orphaned kittens, and dogs orphaned puppies, it’s unusual for a cat to adopt the babies of another species.

This cat puts human females to shame, who abort kill our babies, then have the gall to call it a Constitutional right.

Was this the terrible choice that Adam and Eve made in the First Garden? Despite being well provided for in the Garden, our first parents chose to disobey God’s explicit instruction not to eat from one particular tree, as well as ignore God’s explicit warnings of the consequences of disobedience. Wanting to be “like gods” who would determine for themselves what is right and wrong, Adam and Eve spurned the moral instincts God had already embedded in their hearts — instincts that Miss Kitty and other animals retain.

No wonder St. Bonaventure called them “creatures without sin”. Unlike we humans who are each born tinder for sin (fomes peccati), non-human creatures did not want to be “like gods” and are without Original Sin, having chosen to retain the light of God, which humans contemptuously call “animal instincts”.

  2. Amen, I love the 4 legged creatures much more than most two legged ones. They truly are God’s gift to us.

    • Christian Zionist . . . I am with you, dogs and cats are so loving. I particularly love dogs, but after the death of my last little poodle, The Lord saw fit that a little black kitten found its way to my back door . . . and I love her profoundly!

      • Auntie–I sometimes can’t believe how often our lives parallel …my beloved 14-yr-old black Lab, Jack, was in his last weeks, dying of liver cancer, when a tiny, black kitten came to our porch…eyes not open, crying in our 100 degree day/night heat, literally crawling on her stomach in search of survival, she was that young. We never found evidence of her litter or mother anywhere on our property. So, between my husband/ I, we nursed the new/old. It was a tough schedule for a few weeks until our much-loved Jack passed…but we still have the cat & she is, to us, a sort of God-given legacy to love/cherish, & remember our Jack. And then, within the year, -a full-blooded blonde breeding Lab was dumped at my school, whom we adopted from the shelter when no one came forward to claim her & no one wanted to adopt her. She’d just delivered a litter. We’d simultaneously taken in a litter of 3 kittens, “our boys,” actually “given” to us by a wild mother….& our adopted blonde Lab raised them…they all STILL groom ea other/sleep together/eat together/share play toys…. 🙂 Our household is entirely filled w/humans & animals who “saved” each other from either dire, or sad circumstances…us inclusive.

  5. Thank you for such a lovely story. This reminds me of the scripture that says there will be a time . . .”That the lion will lay down with the lamb . . . “these babies just got a head start. It was amazing to see Miss Kitty washing and grooming the puppies.

  6. Thank you! So refreshing and sweet after all the awful stories we hear about pedophiles. Miss Kitty has more maternal instinct than many people.
