Rescued Cat Cares For Orphaned Kittens, And The Photos Are Adorable.

Every good or bad deed is noticed by a higher power. Doing the right thing when no one is watching means you are a kind, loving soul. This is true among the animal kingdom as well. Cats, dogs, and other animals show a side of humanity most people lack.

Ellen Carozza, a vet from Virginia, not only saved a feline but also wound up adopting him.

Over the years, she had rescued and saved a number of cats but there was something special about this one. She couldn’t help but take Benedict Cumbercat. "The moment I saw his scrawny hot mess of a body, I wanted him," Carozza admits. "I fell in love even with the snotty nose and his horrible eye infection. I knew he was supposed to be mine."

With time Benedict Cumbercat (a.k.a. Benny for short) grew healthier and stronger.

"Benny makes friends very easily with every kitten he comes across, it is a daily occurrence and very routine, Carozza says. "Cats LOVE routine, and if you involve them in a routine, most cats will adapt with no problem. This means Benny is an honorary hospital employee. He fosters two to five kittens at a time and at his best he has taken care of 12 kittens.

"Benny will nest with them whether they like it or not … all of them like it," Carozza says.

"There is something more that a surrogate cat can give to a kitten vs. a human. They connect better, can communicate in their own way, and be provided with cat to cat comfort," Cardozza explains Benny's important role.

She sees Benny's action as a way of giving back.

When he was taken in, Benny suffered from a severe upper respiratory infection along with conjunctivitis, and diarrhea. She nursed him back to life and she believes that now Benny is doing the same for other kitties.

"He actually gets very depressed when we don't have kittens. I'd like to think he is returning the favour we gave him a few years ago," his human admits.

Benny knows he needs to be gentler with the neonates. He loves grooming the kittens but doesn't mean he won't discipline when they are misbehaving.
