Newborn felines are some of the cuddliest members of the animal kingdom. But their diminutive stature—and the level of TLC they need to survive—makes them extra vulnerable, too. That’s why the San Diego Humane Society (SDHS) Kitten Nursery, the first of its kind in the U.S., cares exclusively for fragile fuzz balls.

Very young kittens, even healthy ones, require almost round-the-clock attention: They have to be fed roughly every three hours and need help regulating their body temperature. “Not all…

Cat Mom Who Lost Her Kittens Right Before Mother’s Day Saves A Little Orphan Furball

Meet Flame, the sick kitten who was taken to the Atlanta Humane Society (AHS) and needed a miracle to survive – and that miracle came in the form of Ember, a very special mamma cat. Just a week before Mother’s Day, the older feline experienced a tragedy when all her newborn kitties died. “She had lost all of her babies,” Christina Hill, director of marketing and communications for AHS, told The Dodo, ”but not her motherly instinct.” So, when the time came for Ember to meet Flame, the sick kitten, it’s no surprise that she started showering the tiny thing with love.

On April 24, Schaub took out a bunch of props she uses for newborn baby photoshoots in preparation for a client. She was about to wash them, when she noticed Luna snoozing away on the couch and was suddenly struck with a fun idea.

“I picked her up, loosely wrapped her in a blanket, and set her down,” Schaub said.

The photographer began to snap away, treating little Luna just like she would an infant subject.

And the results are pretty cute and funny:
