A homeless cat kept her babies safe and ensured they always had food, even when she had nothing to eat. The doting mother kept all her kittens safe despite the harsh environment and lack of food. When CatRescue 901, a rescue group from Terrey Hills, New South Wales, Australia learned of their plight, they rushed to save them.
Although untreated in the neighborhood where she was found and having very little food, the cat used all the resources she could muster to keep her babies out of harm’s way and feed them even when she had no food.
Jenny Storaker, co-director of CatRescue 901, told Love Meow:
“The whole family is emaciated, the babies are about six weeks old, so mum must have only fed them once or twice a day and very poor-quality food. separated part of his office to house this family.”
A cat kept her babies safe and fed them on the street
At first, the mother kept her distance from her babysitter and only fed her babies when she was not in the room.
“She lost confidence having to live hard on the streets in a neighborhood where people are not friendly to the many stray cats.”
Over time, with lots of good food, comfort and love, the cat finally grows closer.
“She’s getting more confident now and she’s definitely friendly.”
The kittens were very thin when they arrived at the shelter. But with ad libitum food, they gain weight and strength. It’s amazing how this mother kept all of her kittens alive when she had little to no street food.
“They are with one of our most experienced caretakers who is a nurse and has cared for several of our terribly ill kittens.”
The feline family is doing very well and is on its way to a healthy, happy and loving life. The rescue center works tirelessly to help animals in need in the New South Wales region.
“We are constantly reviewing our resources to ensure that we are able to care for the kittens and cats in our care appropriately, providing top quality food and as many vet visits as necessary. Every cat we we offer for adoption is sterilized, vaccinated, microchipped and treated against fleas and parasites.”
The cat can finally rest comfortably in her foster home and start taking care of herself knowing that her babies are in good hands. Her unconditional love and devotion kept her babies alive, and now they are thriving and hoping that one day they will find their forever home.
