When it comes to giving birth and raising the kids, a lot of the responsibilities seem to fall to the mother, especially for animals. One cat dad decided he wasn't OK with that, though, and wanted to help.

This cat was about to become a father ...

... and so throughout the entire birthing process, he stayed by the mother's side ...

... until she gave birth to four healthy little kittens.

The father was clearly so proud, and immediately cuddled with his adorable new family.

He even let mom have a break at one point and cuddled his new babies on his own ...

... until mom was ready for some family time again.

These two cats are clearly going to make the greatest parents ...

... because they love each other so much.
