Astonishing footage shows a smart mother cat taking her newborn kitten into a hospital – leaving doctors gobsmacked.
The video shows the feline bringing one of two newborn kittens to a hospital in the district of Karabaglar in the western Turkish city of Izmir.
Stunned medical staff laugh in shock as the cat brazenly struts over the tiled floors carrying a helpless kitten by the scruff of its neck.
Another clip shows two ginger kittens in a cardboard box as they are examined and a health worker gently talks to them.
Doctors and nurses noticed the infection in the kittens' eyes and asked a veterinary clinic for help.
In another clip, a nurse picks up a ginger kitten and puts eye drops into the infected eye, and then picks up a calico kitten to perform the same treatment again.
The mother cat was accustomed to the humans who worked at the hospital and accepted food from them but had never tried to venture inside the building before.
Owner 'gobsmacked' as adorable cat found two decades after going missing from home
A health worker told local media: "We were giving food and water to the mother cat living on the street with other people living in this area.
"However, we did not know that she gave birth to kittens.
"As we began to receive patients in the morning, she showed up with her kittens.
"She asked for help, meowing for a long time. We were shocked.
"Upon careful examination, we saw that the kittens were not able to open their eyes due to infection.
"We consulted with veterinarians and gave medicine as described.
"When the kittens opened their eyes a short time later, we were thrilled.
"Later, we sent the mother cat and kittens to Uzundere for further care.
"This is the first time something like this has happened to us. We were emotional and delighted to see that they recovered well."
