When four tiny kittens arrived at a shelter without their mother, little did they know that a heartwarming reunion was just around the corner. Alissa Smith, co-founder of Wrenn Rescues, received a call for help regarding these 10-day-old kittens from a shelter in Downey, California. Time was running out, but thanks to the efforts of a networking group, the kittens were safely transported to Ventura County, California.
Initially found in someone’s yard with their mother, the cat mom quickly disappeared. Determined to care for the kittens, Ashley, a dedicated foster volunteer, began round-the-clock bottle feedings, with assistance from Jenifer Hurt, another rescuer, during the day. The kittens seemed to have been well looked after by their mother, but it’s uncommon for orphaned kittens to reunite with their moms once they enter a shelter. This situation serves as a reminder of the importance of leaving kittens where they are found and waiting for the mother instead of taking them to a shelter.
Ashley and Jenifer were prepared to raise the kittens until they were weaned, but a remarkable twist of fate unfolded. The family who had initially brought the kittens to the shelter returned home to find the mother cat anxiously searching for her babies. They managed to catch her and bring her back to safety. The next day, the momma cat was brought to her foster home for a heartwarming reunion with her kittens.
Initially timid after her ordeal, the momma cat hesitated to leave her carrier until Ashley gently brought one of the babies closer to her. Upon seeing her little one, she immediately calmed down and stepped out of the carrier. She nestled herself in the middle of her kittens, purring contentedly while nursing them. The sight of this reunion left everyone involved in awe of the miracle that had taken place. The bond between the momma cat and her kittens was undeniable and heartwarming.
The following morning, Ashley woke up to the delightful surprise of the affectionate momma cat snuggling up to her and purring with joy. As foster parents for neonatal kittens, Ashley and the team at Wrenn Rescues go above and beyond to ensure the comfort and happiness of their foster animals. However, nothing compares to the pure bliss of having a mother cat by their side.
The patience and gratitude displayed by the momma cat upon being reunited with her kittens are simply remarkable. These little ones are truly fortunate to have such a loving and caring mother. The entire experience is a testament to the power of love and the miracles that can unfold in the world of animal rescue.
