When it comes to giving birth and raising the kids, the responsibilities seem to fall mainly to the mother, this applies to animals too. There are always exceptions to the rules and one cat dad decided he wasn’t going to be left on the sidelines, he wanted to help.

This cat was about to become a father…


He stayed by mama’s side…


…until she gave birth to four healthy little kittens.
