The staff at the Mill Road Vet Clinic in Whangarei, New Zealand found a box of kittens at their door step. Naturally they took the kittens in to care for it, but that’s when another cat showed up and kept trying to get inside.

The staff decided to examine this other cat and suddenly realized it was the kittens’ mother. The staff brought the mother cat in and reunited her with her kittens.

Julie Wills, a veterinarian at the clinic said she’s seen “nothing quite like this.” It proves, Wills said, that “maternal instinct is a powerful thing.”
