19-year-old pet owner Gaby shared a heartbreaking video on her TikTok page @gabecampers, which has already been viewed over a million times.

In the clip, the beautiful tabby cat, Giselle, can be seen looking after her litter of kittens in a crate.

When she emerges from the cat bed to be stroked by Gaby, it becomes clear just how young Giselle actually is – she is not much bigger than her own kittens, who are playing next to her.

"giselle is still a kitten but is raising babies instead of playing," Gaby wrote on her video clip.

Giselle is only seven months old, and Gaby took the young cat in and shared her story to raise awareness about the need for spaying and neutering.

Gaby reassured her viewers that the mother cat and her kittens are "a happy family but she should have never been put in this position."

"thankfully this is her first and last litter and she will get to be a kid again after her babies are weaned," Gaby added.

The Wisconsin native told Newsweek that Giselle came into her care "kinda by accident" when she saw the little cat half-neglected with her adorable kittens at an animal shelter and decided to take her home.

According to Gaby, Giselle's future looks bright, as she and her babies are all well on the way to being taken into a loving home.
