We have been used to seeing stories of how a mother cat or a mother dog volunteered to be the mommy to an entirely different kind of baby animal, and we conclude that it is probably because of the ‘maternal instincts’ of these furparents. We connect the wonderful bond formed with the ability of all mother animals to take care of anything fragile or vulnerable — perhaps it is their nature.
But this story is a lot more special than those you have read. These five cute baby Chihuahuas in Bangkok, Thailand named Yuta, Hana, Nami, Mocha, and Kuma have been taking the online world by storm because of their unlikely guardian.
These adorable babies, together with their Chihuahua parents all live in harmony with the care of their human mom, with the help of one special hand — Ritchie. And he’s a cat. Yes. A male cat.
The white and gray cat named Ritchie acts as the dad, or the father figure to these little ones.
It’s totally unusual, knowing that male cats are not into taking care of little ones, and it also seems like he has picked the apple of his eyes, the tiniest in the group, Kuma.
Wherever Ritchie goes, you will definitely see Kuma following the daddy cat.
…and tucking him in bed to sleep. Awww. I can hear him singing a lullaby for Kuma!
During nap time, Ritchie knows his duty too well to provide a soft and comfy space for his baby Chihuahuas. Surely, this daddy cat loves his adopted little ones so much! Such a cute family!
