Two Rescue Cat Moms Raise Eight Kittens & Five Orphans Together. Happy Family of 15!


Two rescue cat mamas are raising their eight kittens and five adopted orphans together, making it a happy family of 15.

“Sapphire and Turquoise were rescued from an animal hoarder while they were still pregnant. They went into foster together where they had their kittens 4 days apart,” Save-A-Pet told Love Meow.

“Both had 4 kittens but they were raised together as one family with Sapphire and Turquoise both nursing whichever kitten needed feeding. A bit later SAP received a litter of 5 stray 4 week old orphan black kittens who were just in the process of transitioning to solid food. They were added to Sapphire and Turquoise’s group for socialization and some motherly love. They were accepted into the family by the mommas and the kittens making one big happy family of 15.”

Orphan Kittens Adopted By Therapy Dog


A litter of orphan kittens are now in good hands. Not only are they being cared for by their foster humans, but also they have found a new furry dad who treats them like his own.

Bentley is a therapy dog who was also a rescue just like the kittens. He grooms the babies, keeps them warm and comfortable and even lets them nurse on him.

The kittens think Bentley is their dad and are very attached to him. Bentley on the other hand is very protective of his kittens and always has so much patience for them. It’s beautiful to see how much love they have for one another.

This orphan kitten and his siblings have found a new furry dad – Bentley the dog.

“Fostering the kitty family was so awesome! They were born in my house on Halloween,” said RorschachBulldogs of reddit.

“The kitties spent so much time being mothered by Hammie, I’m sure his Bulldogness rubbed off onto them. All of them went to perfect homes and I get updates on them often.”
