People always say that dogs are man’s best friend, but have you ever wondered about other animals such as cats – why aren’t cats man’s best friend too? Well, cats are known to be more ferocious and less friendly compared to dogs. However, the cat in this story seems to be different. When people saw the cat doing something very unusual, they immediately approached it and expected that it was doing something cruel. When they had a closer look, they were surprised by what the cat was actually doing. Keep on reading to find out what.
Dogs Vs Cats
Unlike dogs, cats are often brutal, savage, and silent. Maybe that is the reason why dogs and cats do not get along most of the time – they are completely different. Despite their differences, both cats and dogs are the types of animals lots of people choose to pet.
They Can Be Friends Sometimes
Veterinarians and other animal experts do not advise people to pet a dog and a cat at the same time, but they also said that a dog and a cat can get along sometimes. Through different activities, dogs and cats can learn and find a way to spend some time together.
Well, a moment where a cat and a dog found a way to spend time and be kind to one another happened in South Carolina – a state in the Southeastern United States. People really love living there because it is a very marvelous place. The people are so kind and the environment is peaceful. It has a well-known park that is called the trailer park.
They Love Spending Time Together
South Carolina is also a very animal-friendly place. Most of the people residing there owned at least one pet. If you would visit a park in South Carolina, you would see tons of people chatting with each other together with their pets who are also kind to each other. Everything is just so peaceful and wholesome.
The Famous One
The South Carolina trailer park was home to hundreds of cats. However, there was exactly one cat that never failed to snatch people’s attention. She was like a celebrity in the place. She was a white cat that looked so beautiful and clean. Another thing that people really loved about her was the fact that she was so kind and friendly to everyone – human or other animals, it did not matter. Unlike other cats, she had never been violent and vicious.
“Miss Kitty” was the name given to her by her owner. Miss Kitty was the crowd’s favorite. She never failed to make people smile by doing the cutest things a cat could do – being friendly to other people and other pets, being very obedient to its owner, and the like. However, the smile on people’s faces began to vanish when they noticed something very odd about Miss Kitty.
Something Is Not Right
People began worrying about Miss Kitty when they saw a change in her behavior. She started doing things she did not usually do before such as walking back and forth in a single place in a very anxious manner. At first, they just ignored it, but one day came and they went crazy – a bunch of people saw Miss Kitty walking around with something in her mouth – it was a very furry thing. What was it?
Those Were Puppies
The people looked closer at Miss Kitty and discovered that the very furry thing the cat was carrying in her mouth were puppies! As soon as they knew what Miss Kitty was carrying around the place, people were very curious about what the cat was going to do with the puppies? Knowing Miss Kitty’s personality as an animal, what do you think was she about to do?
The neighbors who saw Miss Kitty carrying puppies in her mouth around the park quickly approached the cat’s owners. The people told them about what they saw and cleared every detail. After hearing everything, Miss Kitty’s owners were so confused – they did not know what their cat was up to. They stopped everything they were doing and looked for Miss Kitty who was still outside, walking around the neighborhood.
To Whom Those Puppies Are
Everyone who knew about the situation was very curious about the owner of the puppies Miss Kitty was carrying around. They all had the same guesses, though – they knew that one of their neighbors’ dog just gave birth to a bunch of puppies the other day, so they assumed that the puppies belonged to him. Well, nothing was confirmed yet – no one’s sure about who owned the puppies and no one’s also sure about Miss Kitty’s purpose of doing such an action.
On the Hunt
Let us talk about the owners of the dog who just recently gave birth to a bunch of puppies the other day. The dog was owned by a lovely family residing in South Carolina. They had always been excited to get their dog pregnant so that they could take care of several puppies – that was why they were very thrilled to welcome a bunch of puppies the other day. However, one day when all the family members went home from work and school, they were put in a state of shock.
All of them were very excited to see the little puppies waiting for them in their home, but they were welcomed by only a few of them. They looked around the house to find the five other cats, but they failed to find them. When they received the news that Miss Kitty was carrying a few puppies around the neighborhood, the puppies’ owners assumed that those were their puppies and they immediately went to the house where the cat was staying.
Miss Kitty’s owners sincerely apologized to the puppies’owners, but they were so surprised to know that Miss Kitty had stolen a total of five puppies. They did not know what the cat’s purpose was, but they assured the puppies’ owners that they had nothing to worry about. What was Miss Kitty up to?
Out of everyone’s knowledge, Miss Kitty had always been doing something very unusual. Even her owners did not know about it. However, Miss Kitty’s owners remembered something that their cat had done in the past. It seemed like it was the reason for everything that was happening at that time. There was a very high possibility that Miss Kitty had stolen the puppies because of that. You might now be curious as to what the cat did before, so keep on reading to satisfy your curiosity.
The Past of Miss Kitty
Let the storytelling begin! Several weeks ago, Miss Kitty got pregnant when she met and interacted with a male cat. When her owners found out that their cat was pregnant, they did everything they could so that Miss Kitty would have a safe pregnancy. They made sure to be extra careful in taking care of the cat.
Not Going Outside
The whole neighborhood knew about Miss Kitty’s pregnancy. All of them were excited for her to give birth to a bunch of cute kittens. They also supported the decision made by the cat’s owners to refrain her from going outside for a while so that she would not be tired out from walking around.
For your information, a cat would show a lot of signs saying that she is already prepared to give birth. One day, Miss Kitty’s body temperature drastically decreased. She also began neglecting all the cad food and treats her owner would prepare for her. It turned out that those were the signs indicating that Miss Kitty was already about to give birth.
Everyone was nervous and excited at the same time when Miss Kitty started giving birth. Despite all the things the owners and the people around the cat did to make sure that she would have a safe pregnancy, all of Miss Kitty’s children passed away a few hours after their birth. It was a very devastating moment for the cat’s owners and of course, for Miss Kitty. It was very painful to lose her children.
It Just Happens Sometimes
They were curious as to what made Miss Kitty’s pregnancy end up that way. The animal experts said that it was just normal for animals to have an unsuccessful pregnancy when it was their first time to give birth. Aside from that, the veterinarians had no other explanations as to why that happened to Miss Kitty.
Going Through Difficult Time
Just like humans, animals also have emotions – in fact, they could even get more emotional than humans. After all of her children passed away, Miss Kitty was devastated. Even though she could not describe how she was feeling, her sadness was evident through her gestures – her behavior changed a lot. It was very difficult for her owners to see her like that.
Another Animal Goes into Labor
A few weeks after Miss Kitty’s loss, news flew around the neighborhood that a dog was about to give birth. Her name was Smoochie. She was a black Cocker Spaniel. Just like Miss Kitty’s owners, the dog’s owners did their best in order to make their dog’s pregnancy a safe one. Everyone in the neighborhood was silently praying for her labor to be safe and successful.
There is Something Different
It seemed like the whole neighborhood’s prayers were answered – Smoochie gave birth and all of her children survived. The dog’s owners were very happy that nothing dangerous happened to Smoochie and her babies. However, despite the very good news, there was a huge turning point in Smoochie’s pregnancy story.
It turned out that Smoochie was way too young to embrace motherhood. Even though she managed to deliver a bunch of healthy puppies, she was still not prepared to be a mother to all of her children. Days after she gave birth, she did not show any interest in taking care of her children at all. She lived as if her babies were not with her.
Smoochie’s owners were very pleased by the puppies’ presence. However, after the dog’s labor, they noticed that Smoochie was not showing any affection to her children. At first, they tried to ignore it and just thought that it was normal. After a few days, they became really bothered by the fact that Smoochie was not even coming close to her children. Well, she was still very young – that was why her detachment to her kids was kind of reasonable.
Still the Same
They had nothing else to do but just hope that Smoochie would overcome her disinterest someday and finally show some love to her children. A few days had already passed and the dog’s owners were expecting some change in Smoochie’s attitude towards the puppies. Everything was still the same – Smoochie was still distant to her children.
They Have Tried Everything
Just like humans, puppies that are only a few months old have to be by their mother’s side – it is a very important factor that hugely affects their health. That was why Smoochie’s owners were already worried about the puppies because their mother was still very distant. They already tested lots of strategies that would make Smoochie embrace motherhood, but every try failed. They did not know what to do anymore. The puppies’ health was already being affected by their mother’s behavior.
A Difficult Situation
Miss Kitty and Smoochie’s stories were the exact opposite. Miss Kitty had always been prepared to be a mother, but she did not get the opportunity to be one because all of her children passed away. On the other hand, Smoochie had the chance to be a great mother to her children but was still very young and unprepared to embrace motherhood. With that information, the whole neighborhood kind of understood everything that was happening with a few puppies being stolen.
She Heard Something
One day, Smoochie’s children were crying all of their hearts out – maybe because of the lack of affection and care they were getting from their mother. The crying sound could be heard outside of their house and someone heard it clearly – it was Miss Kitty. She was wandering around the neighborhood until she heard a bunch of puppies crying which made her stop from walking.
With what happened to her, Miss Kitty was obviously very eager to become a mother. Hearing that crying sound coming from a trailer, she definitely knew that it was coming from a bunch of puppies that were in pain. Without second thoughts, she immediately planned the thing she would do next.
She planned a routine wherein she would keep an eye on the puppies by passing by their trailer every day. Every time she would look at them, she was saddened by the fact that they were not loved by their mother. Being the caring cat who had almost been a mother, she knew to herself that she had to do something in order to help the puppies.
Time to Do Something
As days passed by, she saw the puppies’ condition just getting worse. Seeing the puppies in a very bad situation forced Miss Kitty to make a very tough decision. Even though her plan was kind of sketchy, her intentions were nothing bad and were not harmful to the puppies – in fact, it was a really thoughtful gesture.
She came up with a decision to take the puppies under her custody. She did not want to do this to piss Smoochie in any way or hurt the puppies – she did this gesture because she wanted the puppies to feel that they were loved. She wanted to take care of them because she knew that their mother failed to show the love and care they deserved.
She began taking the puppies one at a time by carrying them in her mouth, bringing them to an empty trailer. That was the day when people saw her carrying a furry thing in her mouth. From the empty trailer, she would come back to the puppies’ trailer, take one of them, and bring them to the empty trailer – the cycle continued.
When Smoochie’s owners confronted Miss Kitty’s owners about what was happening, the cat’s owners immediately went out of their trailer to look for their pet. Despite the very large area that the trailer park occupied, looking for the cat was not that difficult – huge thanks to a neighbor who saw the empty trailer where Miss Kitty was taking the puppies.
A New House
The cat and dog’s owners arrived at the empty trailer. They saw Miss Kitty with the company of five puppies. Looking at the puppies, Smooshie’s owners got to confirm that they were really the puppies they were looking for. After a few more minutes of analyzing the situation, all of them discovered something surprising.
Taking Care Like a Mother
They discovered that Miss Kitty was actually taking care of the puppies she had stolen. Knowing that cats and dogs do not get along most of the time, it was very surprising to see that the puppies were at a very peaceful state under the attention of Miss Kitty. It was an astounding yet very heartwarming view.
Just in Time
Everybody who saw Miss Kitty taking care of the puppies was so surprised. They even saw her feeding the puppies some milk that came from her – well, she just recently got pregnant that was why she still had the ability to produce some milk.
Cats and Dogs
One of the lessons everyone could learn from this story is that nothing is impossible. Who could have thought that cats and dogs can effortlessly find a way to have a good time together? Well, Miss Kitty just proved that. She also proved all the people who thought that all cats are heartless and cruel wrong.
Let it Be
At first, the owners were kind of angry because of the fact that Miss Kitty stole the puppies, but seeing the puppies being in a very peaceful and safe condition convinced them that the cat did not do anything wrong. At that point, they were even considering that being under Miss Kitty’s care was the best decision for the puppies.
Building Relationship Together
Well, it turned out that it was really the best decision for the puppies. That was why the puppies grew up under the custody of Miss Kitty. It was a very practical decision knowing that the cat could feed them with her milk. If you would come to think of it, it was a win-win situation – the puppies would get the love and care they had always deserved and Miss Kitty would experience the feeling of being a mother.
Days had passed and Miss Kitty took care of the puppies. Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months, and months turned into years. The puppies started growing up as very healthy dogs. When they reached the appropriate age, they already stopped drinking Miss Kitty’s milk and began taking solid food.
Even though what Miss Kitty did was a very thoughtful and heartwarming gesture, it was still very odd. It was the very first time the neighborhood saw something like that. Well, the bottom line was that nothing would be impossible when a child’s life would be at stake – especially if there would be someone who had a motherly instinct.
Adopting the Procedure
Witnessing the growth of the puppies and seeing how healthy they became, the technique Miss Kitty did had been done by several animal adoption centers. They tried to adopt animals that had no parents to take care of them and they would give them to an animal who just got pregnant so that the animal could feed them her milk.
Love No Matter What
To prove the point that not all cats are violent and ferocious, here is a very short story about a cat who helped a fellow animal. This time, the animals a cat helped were not dogs but a bunch of baby ducklings. Keep on reading to know how a cat helped such a group of animals.
Adapting the Situation
As we all know ducklings are the kind of animals that do not really need milk coming from their mother, but they eventually learned how to breastfeed from a cat who just recently got pregnant. Animal experts used this technique so that cats’ milk would not go to waste.
It is Getting Viral
Another story wherein an animal helped another type of animal was shared by a farmer. He said that he witnessed his hen taking care of a bunch of kittens. He was surprised by the sight of the kittens taking a rest at the nest of his hen. He was amazed by the gesture the mother hen made.
Let us go back to Miss Kitty’s story. Her owners had never been proud of her. They knew that they raised and trained Miss Kitty well, but they did not expect her to do such a thing. They were moved by the initiative of the cat to help the puppies who were in need because their mother was not yet prepared to take care of them. They were also amazed by Miss Kitty’s motherly instinct.
Spreading the Story Out There
Days after the incident happened, people were so excited to talk about Miss Kitty’s story making it spread all throughout the neighborhood. Everyone was surprised by the cat’s gesture because it was really a big deal for the puppies – their lives were the ones at stake in that situation and Miss Kitty saved them. She stood as their mother and without her, the puppies would not grow as healthy as they had been.
It turned out that spreading the story was something Miss Kitty’s owners really wanted, but it was not for fame or anything. They wanted everyone to know the cat’s story for them to learn that female animals have always been capable of raising and taking care of other animals even if they were not the same species.
Finding New Homes
With the helpful action Miss Kitty had made, the puppies were able to grow into healthy and cheerful dogs. Smoochie’s owners were so grateful for the big help Miss Kitty had done for the puppies. A huge thanks to the cat and the owners’ efforts, the dogs were eventually adopted one by one. However, there was another turning point.
Everything Was Okay
Miss Kitty’s owners were so worried about the cat that she might be devastated once again because the dogs, whom she treated like her children, had to leave already. Well, it seemed like she also grew as a very caring and understanding mother because instead of becoming sad, she became very happy after the dogs left. Everything in Miss Kitty and her owners’ lives had been going well.
An Excellent Pet Owner
If you are a pet owner, make sure that you know everything about the animal you are taking care of and prepare to be surprised at any moment. On the other hand, if you are still planning on being a pet owner, make sure to do a lot of research and studying because taking care of animals is a very serious matter and being an excellent pet owner is a really difficult task.
For your information, lots of animals get abandoned every year because their previous owner could not take responsibility anymore. That is the main reason why everyone should think carefully before adopting a pet because once you enter the world of being a pet owner, you could never back out – just think about the animal’s situation. Once you think you could not handle the responsibility, maybe it would be much better if you do not pursue it.
As a Pet Owner
Always think before making a decision. As a pet owner, you should do tons of studying first before adopting an animal. You should be aware of everything about the animal’s nature. Being a pet owner is not a joke and it is also not an easy thing.
Happily, Ever After
Miss Kitty made history in a trailer park located in South Carolina. She had proven a couple of things. First, she proved that not all cats are violent and cruel. The next thing Miss Kitty managed to prove is the fact that female animals, who have motherly instincts, can take care of other animals no matter what kind of species they are. Now, Miss Kitty and her owners are living a great and peaceful life.
