Woman dedicated to caring for cats in need brings home four rescued kittens and her dog took care of them
A volunteer foster family has a very special helper in their home, their dog, who does a very important job when new members come into the family. Every time the woman brings home kittens, the sweet dog takes them under her wing, and this time was no exception.
Asa, a volunteer foster carer from The Crazy Cat Family, a TLC (Time, Love, and Care) kitten rescue organization based in New York City, took in four kittens.
The four cubs had been found in the backyard of a Queens home and were in urgent need of special care.

The babies were estimated to be around 3-4 weeks old and since their arrival all they wanted was lots of love. Peanut, Cashew, Pistachio and Hazelnut were healthy, but still didn’t show their true selves, although they constantly sought to be very affectionate.
The dwarf of the pack, Peanut, stood out for being very demanding, from the start he had the most outstanding personality despite his size. The arrival of the little ones aroused a lot of curiosity in Asa’s resident dog, Kona, who was anxious and wanted to offer her help to the kittens.
Kona has been characterized as a good helper to her human mother, plus she has a loving heart for needy animals that come along.
Every time her mother brings home new kittens, she makes sure to give them the proper treatment, hugging and licking them. So, when she heard the four little ones for the first time, her maternal instincts immediately kicked in and she wanted to protect them from harm.
Quickly, Kona approached one of the cubs and showered him with kisses on the face, then she did it with the others.
The kittens got to know their new adoptive mother and decided to move closer to Kona to receive the attention of a real mom. Even the smallest of the pack, Peanut, stroked Kona’s belly and tried to suckle, no one could resist her love.
In no time, Kona managed to gather all the babies into a bed, where she comforted them, cuddled them and gave them lots of love. The little ones were happy to have a surrogate they could snuggle up with, and that’s exactly what they did.
Thanks to Kona’s care, the kittens began to show their true selves; everyone discovered their sweet voices and didn’t hesitate to use them. Peanut always stands out, the little guy has a nice voice and every time he wants something he meows until he gets what he wants.
The adorable dwarf is very mischievous, usually climbing on his human’s foot with the intention of being carried around the house. When her caretakers aren’t available, she knows what to do, always going straight to Kona for hugs and love.
Kona fulfills the role of adoptive mother very well, constantly watching over them to make sure they don’t stray too far and to keep them safe from harm.
On one occasion, Peanut ran for the gate, but before he got there he was intercepted by Kona, grabbed him by the back of the head, and pulled him back. The four little ones thrive successfully in their foster home and grow into beautiful, playful and mischievous young cats.
Kona is proud of her adorable babies, she takes her job very seriously, so much so that she sleeps with them and is always attentive to their needs.
Kittens rescued from the backyard of a home are now enjoying life and can’t get enough of the love their foster family gives them.
