Feral Kittens Found by Dog Under a Boat

Two little feral kittens were found by a dog and a group of men who went camping over the weekend. “The dog was running around the boat like crazy whimpering and I couldn’t figure out why,” said the dog owner via imgur.

“She went in to investigate more closely.” Then what she discovered were two tiny kittens, hiding under the boat by themselves. The Coonhound/Lab mix dog became very motherly to the kittens, grooming and soothing them while the men started thinking what they should do to help the kittens.

“We waited around for the mother for quite a while. There was no sign of her. They were feral and we were worried that they might not make it through the cold weather and with winter just around the corner. We took them to a vet and are following instructions to make sure they are properly taken care of. I know it would have probably been better to leave them for the mother, we couldn’t just leave them there with the other things in mind. My friends who are holding them in the pictures are keeping them,” he wrote via reddit.

    No, not better to leave them for the mother. This is much better as they can be tamed fairly easily that young and won’t have to live (a very short life) as strays. Yay for the dog who sniffed them out and yay for the men who assumed responsibility for their care!
