Cat who lost her own litter has adopted three abandoned kittens

A grieving cat that lost her kittens has received three abandoned kittens thanks to a Texas cat-rescue organisation.

Eight-month old Mikey, a pregnant rescue cat her owners initially thought was male, lost her three newborn kittens to early births.

Mikey's owner, Hillary, was desperate to help her depressed feline so she got in touch with a cat-rescue organisation. They had just the thing for Mikey – three orphaned kittens who were days old.

The kittens were introduced to Mikey and the connection was instant. Mikey started hugging, licking, and falling asleep with them and the kittens soon latched on to Mikey and began nursing.

The rescue operation was deemed a success as Mikey and her adopted kittens seem as happy as ever.
