There are Times When a Cat WANTS to go to the Vet

A mother cat was desperate to get into a veterinary clinic where her kittens were located.

Nothing was going to keep this mama from her babies.

Chances are you’ve seen more cats desperately wanting to leave your veterinary clinic rather than enter it. For the Mill Road Vet Clinic in Whangarei, Northland in New Zealand, it was quite the opposite.

Earlier this month staff at the clinic found four kittens in a box that they believed were between three and four weeks old and abandoned by their mother, Independent reports. However, the staff was wrong. The veterinary clinic posted on Facebook, “This morning we noticed a tabby cat hanging around our front door, trying to sneak in every time a client arrived. When we realized it wasn’t going to go away, we picked her up [and] discovered she was a feeding Mum. Then the penny dropped! Sure enough, we introduced her to the ‘orphan’ kittens [and] there was a very happy reunion! Presumably she had been in the box too [and] escaped before we arrived for work. She’s probably been prowling around all night looking for her kidnapped kittens!”

Currently, the mama cat and her kittens are being fostered by a relative of a Mill Road Vet Clinic staff member. However, they will be available for adoption in time.
