Bow Tie and Magnet were extremely unhappy when they were separated after arriving at the York County SPCA.

Brought in during a cruelty investigation, the two female cats were used to being together. But Magnet needed special medical attention, and that forced the separation.

“We put them back together as soon as possible because they were both miserable,” York County SPCA Communications Director Kaila Young said Wednesday. “They cuddled together, I called them our Yin and Yang.”

Staff arrived at the shelter one morning to find four kittens in the cage with Bow Tie and Magnet. Bow Tie was so small, she didn’t look like she was pregnant.

Now, the two adult females co-parent the kittens.

“I’ve never seen anything like it,” Young said. “Bow Tie will feed them, and as they finish eating, the kittens will go over to Magnet. She watches over them while Bow Tie gets a break. The kittens have two moms.”
