Petunia the cat was found with a big belly that was ready to pop. What she didn’t know was that her journey from the day she delivered her kittens till the day they were all adopted out was witnessed by thousands of people on the internet.
On March 18, six tiny babies were born healthy at Roche’s Fort Langley home of Langley Animal Protection Society (LAPS). Petunia, a young cat, jumped into the role of a mom right away and started grooming and nursing the little ones.
Thousands of people around the world watched the kittens grow from tiny fuzz balls whose eyes weren’t even opened to playful little kitties that wreaked hevoc around the foster home. Through a kitty cam, Petunia and her litter of kittens touched the hearts of thousands upon thousands. People couldn’t get enough of their cuteness.
Just a few days ago, they were on their way to their forever homes. It was bitter sweet to the caretakers at LAPS, but knowing they will be living in a permanent home with people that love them, it makes all the hard work worthwhile.

Two kittens are being fostered at St. George’s University and have been hanging out with the vet students in class. “Two kittens are being fostered until they are adopted. They needed socialization so the foster brought them to class for a few hours. I claimed one until they had to leave,” said reddit user avboden, vet student. “We had food, water and a litter box up in the corner for them.”
One of the kittens, a tabby cat decided to turn a laptop sleeve into his bed. “He actually curled up inside the laptop sleeve and slept there for 2 straight classes… with a potty break in between.”
“I learned nothing in class today,” he added.

These two itty bitties came to Tonis Kitty Rescue not too long ago. They found warmth, food and plenty of love.
“They like to be wrapped around one another for warmth and comfort…. They just like being next to one another all the time since they can’t see yet, but they will be opening their eyes and exploring the world soon,” said Tonis.

“My friend runs a rescue. Two of her foster animals adopted each other… she’s a vet tech turned stay at home mom who does it all out of her own pocket. She’ll rescue any and everything,” said Storova via reddit.

They are meant to be together!

Catherine (Kate) a beautiful black cat showed up in someone’s yard one day and started making herself at home. The owner of the family brought her to the Challenger’s House in Toney, Alabama. When she was going through physical check up at the vet’s, they discovered that Kate didn’t come to the yard alone. She was pregnant. “She showed up at the house of a woman and her son; …Kate hovered around their back yard for a while before she decided to make herself at home,” said Robyn Anderson, the foster mom.
They took Kate with a big belly to Robyn, an experienced fosterer. In less than a month, Kate gave birth to five very fuzzy kittens (two tuxies, two tabbies, and one black).
Kate has been nothing but loving and dedicated to her babies. Her motherly instinct kicked in when she was pregnant. She was looking for a safe place to have her kittens and ended up in the good hands of the Challenger’s House.

A lovely cat mama, Lillypops, was surrendered to Cats Protection Bridgend Adoption Centre because her owner could no longer keep her. But she didn’t just come to the shelter alone. She brought four others with her and they were born on March 1.
“These are the first kittens born at the centre this year. They… have been called Daffodil, Leek, David and Myfanwy,” said the shelter on Facebook.
These little ones and their mom will be up for homing once the kittens are 9 weeks old.
