Cats have a reputation for being cold and evil, but they're definitely sweet and protective when it comes to their kittens. These momma cats posing with their kittens prove that every mom can be proud of her children!

Mother cats are tender and caring, but there are cases in which they can reject their kittens. This can happen when their kittens have birth defects, when their litter is too large, or for certain stress-related reasons. It's important to socialize kittens after 2 weeks, but be sure they spend most of their time with mom – she's got important lessons to teach them!

This is actually the same cat, the original poster (on Reddit I think) said that this was a comparison of their cat when it was a kitten and full grown.

None of these cats are photoshopped. They are super cute and remind me of the nestling dolls :-)
