A foster cat took on the mother's role and became a protective father to a litter of kittens.
He was initially kept separated from the kittens. "But he showed a strong interest so I allowed him in the room more… He helps clean them, keeps them away from areas they shouldn't be near, even licks them to help them use the bathroom...," said rory2013 via reddit.

He wouldn't let them go without a hug.
Cuddle time and love from a father.
