A pregnant cat arrived in a family health center to give birth in the eastern province of Bitlis.
The cat, which was struggling to give birth, entered the health center in Bitlis’ Tatvan and started meowing in pain, daily Hürriyet reported on April 13.
According to local news website Bitlis 13 Haber, the heartwarming and astounding incident happened on Wednesday as a cat in labor started to meow at the door of the No.2 health center in Tatvan district when she realized she was having some complications in giving birth to her kittens.
The nurses let her in but they didn’t know just what was wrong with the pregnant kitty.
They soon realized that despite moments of intense labor the cat wasn’t able to deliver a kitten so, they called the municipality vet.
After being taken to the Tatvan Municipality Stray Animal Neutering and Rehabilitation Center, vet Sefer Durmuş saw that the cat was having a lot of difficulty with natural birth so he took her in for a caesarean section (more commonly known as c-section).
“When we received the cat, she was in a poor condition and in pain. Because the time for her to give birth had passed, we had to urgently give her an operation,” said the veterinary who performed the cesarean section.
“The operation was successful. We now have four kittens. She will stay under our protection until she regains her health and we find homes for the kittens,” the veterinary added.
The cat gave birth to a total of four healthy kittens and Durmuş said that the mother was in good condition after the operation.
The cat realized she couldn’t do it on her own, so what better place to go than a Health Clinic? What a smart kitty! SHARE AWAY!
