Cat Mama and Son Rescued from the Attic


A tabby cat mama decided to settle down in an attic and give birth to her litter of three. “We found a stray in our attic… We were renting the house, there was a small hole under where the roof overhangs from the house that vents the heat from the attic. It was supposed to have a screen over it but the screen was missing. Mama is quite capable of climbing and somehow she spotted the hole and was able to shimmy in and out. She gave birth in the attic and was able to get out to hunt and get food then would come back to check on the kittens. All we kept hearing was scratching behind the walls, so we had someone come out to see what was going on and there they were!” said the family that adopted the entire family of four.

The little kitten in the photos wouldn’t stop meowing and has always been a vocal one. He turned out to be a Maine Coon mix. He is a big kitty with a lot of fluff. They named him Cosmo. “His sisters are tiny kitties compared to him.”

    I’m so glad these four felines found a furever home – together! What a surprise for the human family – who I hope by now has replaced the missing screen.

    It looks like “Mama” is ear-tipped – the universal sign of a feral cat that has been fixed. I wonder what her story is?

    • Noelegy says:

      It’s possible for a feral or just an outdoor cat to have that kind of damage to her ear without having been fixed. My little brother and his wife had a sweet, friendly outdoor cat who showed up one day with the tip of one of her ears deliberately cut off. They don’t know who did it, which is probably a good thing for that person.
