A clever stray mama cat in Istanbul, Turkey brought her kitten to a hospital to get help – not a vet, but a human hospital’s emergency room.

Fortunately, the doctors were immediately willing to help, examining the kitten for problems, while the mother cat looked on. After doctors made sure that the situation was not critical, mother and baby were sent to a vet for proper check-up.

In Turkey, cats are considered to be a sacred animal. Legend has it that a cat saved Prophet Muhammad from a deadly snake and he blessed the animal in gratitude.

A 2017 documentary about cats in Istanbul called Kedi showcased a day in the life of a stray cat in Istanbul.
