A ginger cat and her four kittens find themselves in a precarious situation. Sparkle Cat Rescue, an all-volunteer organization in Burlington, North Carolina, managed to rescue them just in the nick of time.
“They originated from a trailer park in Whitsett, North Carolina,” explains the narrator. “Someone unaffiliated with Sparkle Cat Rescue trapped all five and brought them to the clinic,” said Stephanie Grantham, co-founder, and CEO of the organization.
“We received information that the kittens were in danger of being euthanized because the mother cat would be returned to the owners once her ownership was established.”
In the meantime, the mother cat treated her kittens with utmost care, never letting them out of her sight. “She loves her offspring and is dedicated to them.”
Christy, a volunteer with Sparkle Cat Rescue, is leading a rescue mission with foster mom Sarah Kelly stepping in to help. “The kittens had a cold, and one of the white ones seemed sicker than the others,” Stephanie says.
The mother cat finally found solace, seemingly for the first time in a while. She laid down with the kittens, as if she understood that they were now in caring hands.
The woolen balls warmed up in their new bed and started to alleviate stress by nursing on their mother’s milk.
“After receiving doses of antibiotics, lysine, and eye salve, they were finally able to spend the night warm and safe, with a humidifier on,” says Sarah.
The vigilant mother kept the children close and did not allow herself to leave even for a second.
“I’ve never had a mother who was that serious. She lets me care for the kittens, but when I weigh them, she watches at me closely and growls. Apart from that, she purrs and fawns,” Sarah explains. “What matters is that they are all warm, full, and safe.”
The tiniest of the brood, the kitten-girl, turned out to be a warrior. Despite having the worst case of cat flu, she never gave up, surviving the first night and fighting on.
“The smallest girl is very assertive, now her fight is still going on, therefore, ours too,” Sarah adds. Her eyes are already looking better, but they are still far from full recovery. We are in close contact with our veterinarian and are doing everything possible to ensure that this family recovers and feels comfortable.”
The mother cat is happy that her kittens are safe. She constantly hugs them so that they do not forget that they are loved.
“This woman is devoted to her children. What would have happened to them if Sparkle Cat had refused to adopt them hurts my heart. In comparison to where she came from, she now lives in a castle,” Stephanie explains.
“We were able to offer this family a chance at life because to our great caregivers and sponsors,” says the top comment. We’ll make sure they’re well cared for and placed in excellent homes so they don’t have to worry about being homeless or hungry again.”
