ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Six abandoned kittens named after the kids in "The Brady Bunch" TV series are getting a nurturing boost from an unlikely source.

The 3-week-old kittens have been adopted by Henry, an 8-month-old male cat.

Heather Muench is a volunteer with the Ketchikan Humane Society. She says the kittens were put into a cardboard box and dumped on a Prince of Wales' road.

Children walking home from school heard their cries one day last week, and a volunteer shipped them the shelter.

Henry, a rescue himself, has his own problems. A neurological disorder affects his balance.

But Muench says he's a sweet cat. And he has taken a shine to the kittens, spending hours grooming them.

The kittens were named Jan, Marcia, Cindy, Greg, Peter and Bobby.
