In their search for shelter and care, the orphaned felines were drawn to the coop and then into the nurturing feathers of one of Surchi's chickens named Lee.

Rather than further abandon the kittens, the chicken decided to keep them warm beneath her body, helping to save the sweet little creatures' lives.

Unfortunately, the kitten's mother was eventually found after drowning in a lake, making the kittens true orphans.

It was almost as if Lee understood the entire situation. She was ready and willing to be an unconventional, but protective mother to the little ones.
