While waiting for her father who went to the Emergency Room, this woman in Turkey witnessed a truly incredible sight. Suddenly a stray mama cat strolled through the hospital’s doors carrying her kitten in her mouth. The unusual patient went straight to the medics and asked for help.
The heartwarming scene took place at the Kanuni Sultan Süleyman Hospital in Istambul, where Merve Özcan brought his father for some investigation. Yet, she was surprised to see the staff at the ER is not dealing only with humans, but furry patients as well.
“While I was waiting, I saw the cat carry her baby,” Merve told Love Meow. “I was very surprised when I saw her because she seemed to know the place better than me. It was obvious that she knew where to go.”
The cat didn’t seemed disturbed by other people’s presence as her only concern was her little baby’s safety. And the staff there was more than happy to take care of both of them. After a briefly medical examination, it turned out the little one was healthy and there’s was nothing to worry about. Both the cat and her offspring got some milk from the ER’s staff.
“The medical staff was very happy to see the cat and kitten,” Özcan told The Dodo. “They went to them and loved and cared for them.” Apparently, the medical staff seemed to know the cat and she also seemed to be pretty familiar with the hospital and its staff.

“There was no problem with cats, they were not sick,” the woman said. “I think it was a cat that employees already know, and there were people who saw it there before.” Even though, after feeding them and played a little bit with the cute little kitten, the nurses head the pair to a vet for further investigations. But not before Merve to take some lovely snaps of the cat and her baby. She then shared the adorable photos on Twitter, winning everyone’s heart.
