Boy Cat Is So Adorable With His New Foster Kittens That He Allows Them To ‘Nurse’

Tracy Toll wasn’t concerned about introducing four foster kittens to her two dogs, Flash and Tasha, or even her cat, Morgan, when she brought them home a few weeks ago.

She was concerned, though, that they might meet Apollo, her recently adopted male cat.

Toll, a volunteer with the Ontario SPCA (OSPCA), told The Dodo, “He [Apollo] is 5 years old, and he’d just been repaired.” “Being a male cat, I feared he may attempt to injure them.”

Toll’s worries were justified: unneutered male cats may be violent, however neutering usually eliminates these traits. However, Toll was concerned that these adjustments would not take effect quickly enough in Apollo’s instance.

According to Toll, Apollo’s former owner had surrendered him to the OSPCA, and it was apparent that he had been terribly negloctted.

Toll said, “His hair nearly looked looke a turtle shell since it was so matted.” “He needed to be shaved.”

Toll fell in love with Apollo’s gentle personality while working at the shelter and decided to adopt him. He got along swimmingly with her other cat and two dogs. Toll, on the other hand, wasn’t sure how he’d react in the presence of small, playful kittens.

According to Toll, Apollo soon became “Mr. Mom” after that.

Toll explained, “At feeding time, he’d go in [their room], and then I saw he’d start laying up on the bed, enabling the kittens to cuddle near to him.”

Teddy, Axel, Kai, and Levi, the kittens, began to lie directly on top of Apollo.

Toll explained, “He would clean them from head to tail, and then my son… emailed me a video of Apollo letting one of the kittens nurse off of him.”

Apollo enjoyed playing with the kittens when he wasn’t grooming or snuggling with them.

She said, “They’d play together on the cat tree.” “Apollo would lie there and watch, and the kittens would be racing around all over the cat tree and on him.”

When things got out of hand, Apollo would step in looke a protective mother.

“If two of the kittens raced into the room and were playing too rough with each other, and he heard them scream, he’d go check on them,” Toll explained.

According to Toll, Levi and Kai have already been adopted, and the OSPCA staff expects the other two to find homes soon.

While Apollo may miss the kittens, Toll intends to foster kittens again and again. And she’s confident that Apollo will enjoy every moment of it.
