Stories like this just melt your heart: A vet clinic in New Zealand found a box of kittens dumped at their front door. They opened the box to find three tabby/white boys and one black/tabby girl around the ages of 3 to 4 weeks.
“Of course we all fell in love with them & vet nurse Nicole took them home to care for them overnight,” Mill Road Vet Clinic said in their Facebook post.

“When we realized it [cat] wasn’t going to go away, we picked her up and discovered she was a feeding mom.”
