A stray cat was wandering the streets of Texas when she requested help from a man. He decided to take her in, and a few weeks later she gave birth to a litter of five tiny kittens.

This friendly cat just popped on a man’s backyard one day back in July and he offered her some wet food. From then on, she decided to move in at his house, perhaps sensing that he has a soft spot for furry animals.

From then, the man became her family and designated can opener. The cat got a warm place to stay and free food!

Soon however they noticed that her belly had started growing and they soon figured out that they were not feeding just one cat. In early August, the cat gave birth to a litter of five kittens who were now safe and sound, surrounded by humans who loved them very much.

Even though mama is very protective of her babies, she does allow a human helping hand from time to time. The guy’s sister who also lives in the neighborhood popped up too to help with the raising.

Imgur user Eesky said that one time she had put the kittens in her lap when mama kitten decided to join in as well for her share of petting. The woman, being a nursing mom herself, said that she felt deeply for the cat mama who was trying to take a break but her kittens were very demanding and wanted to nurse.

Mama cat is quite a devoted mother, spending most of her time nursing and grooming her little kittens, despite the latters’ protest against being cleaned and groomed.

The family has decided to spay and neuter all the kittens as soon as they are big enough, and hopefully find them forever homes. Mama cat however seems like she has already found her forever home now.

The sister and her husband have decided to adopt two of the kittens- calico Ruby and her brother Jasper. They have decided to adopt them both so as they have each other to play with. They just recently actually moved in to their new house.

The sister claims that the pair is doing much better in their new surrounding now.

Mama cat was clever enough to pick a good family to trust and now not only does she have a home for herself, but she has also ensured the wellbeing of her kittens.
