Robert Brantley was heading to the shooting range after work when he spotted a black and white kitten in the grass on the side of the road. He knew the tiny animal "wouldn't make it through the night" since it was obviously very young. So he stopped to get it and then....
As he grabbed the little one, which was barely bigger than his hand, six more kittens came bounding out of the grass toward him. Brantley described it as getting "ambushed [by] the mob."
"We've got a kitten problem!" he said. "Who would do this?"
By the end of the video, he resigns himself to the fact that he will be rescuing them all.
"I thought I was saving one. Hot diggety dog!" Brantley sighs. "Oh my gosh, there's more!" Brantley could be heard exclaiming. "I can't take you all!"
Since posting the videos to his Facebook page, they have gone viral, with thousands praising him for saving the litter. He has been asking his followers for advice on how to care for them as he works on finding homes for them. However, Brantley says his family plans on keeping the very first kitten that he had stopped to rescue originally – and they've already named him "Scout."
