Stray Cat Looked for Shelter During Ice Storm Then Gave Birth to Seven Very Hungry Kittens


Meet Lucy and her seven very hungry kittens.

She was looking for shelter during an ice storm when she was pregnant.

Robyn Anderson of Love and Hisses writes: “Lucy (est’d date of birth 3/19/12) came to us on March 19, 2015. She’d shown up almost two weeks previously at someone’s house during an ice storm looking for shelter. When it became clear that she was planning to stick around AND that she was pregnant, they called Challenger’s House for help.

When she came to us, we expected her to give birth at any moment. Almost TWO WEEKS later, she finally did, on April 1, 2015.”

“In the space of three hours, she gave birth to SEVEN kittens. We weren’t expecting quite that many!”

“Lucy is a wonderful and attentive mother, and her kittens more than doubled their weight in their first week of life.”

“There are SO MANY of them, and all they wanna do is EAT.”

I think it would be safe to say that these are not going to be tiny kittens.”

Ginger Cat Mama Gave Birth at Mall Loading Dock Rescued with Her Babies


This beautiful ginger cat mama was pregnant and living on the street. When she was discovered, she quickly ran into a loading dock at a local mall. Shortly after that, she went into labor and gave birth to six kittens.

They couldn’t open the loading dock because it would have crushed the Mama, so they called Cats at the Studios Rescue of Burbank, California for help.

Mama cat was safely rescued and three of her kittens survived. They are now living in a foster home, happy, healthy and loved.

Two Orphan Kittens Taken in by Chihuahua Caring for Them Like Her Own


Two tiny kittens were abandoned in a yard but were taken in by a Chihuahua who became their surrogate mom.

Lucy Liu, the Chihuahua, met the two little black kittens after they were brought home by Jamie Apfel, an animal vet tech for the Hi Tor Animal Shelter. Her pet dog Lucy immediately fell in love.

“She does everything a mom cat would do,” Jamie told Fox 12. “Needless to say, these kittens are not going to be afraid of dogs.”

Lucy’s motherly instinct kicked in and started caring for her new babies. “I was blown away,” she said.

“I don’t know how well she’s going to do when they leave her,” Jamie added. “She’s very very attached to them.”

Emotional Reunion! Cleo the Calico Cat Reunited with Her Mom After Six Years


After almost six years and a lot of efforts by a community of animal lovers, Cleo the calico cat has finally been reunited with her human mom.

When a local shelter picked up a calico cat in Brockville, Ontario last fall, Stuck in the Mud Animal Rescue took the kitten in and nursed her back to health.

While they were at the vet one day, they discovered a faded tattoo on her ear which indicated that the cat had already been spayed. It was a clue that the cat might belong to someone.

Betty Jean Matthews, the founder of the rescue organization tracked down the owner by tracing the identification number to a spay and neuter clinic in Edmonton and it showed that the cat had been spayed in 2009.

They started looking for Cleo’s human with the information at hand. “They sent me a picture and I thought, ‘That’s my cat,'” said Amanda Graham, who lives in Edmonton.

The organization started fundraising for a ticket to have a volunteer accompany Cleo on a flight back to Edmonton, so the two could finally reunite.

On Sat morning, Cleo arrived at the International Airport in Edmonton where Amanda was anxiously waiting. When they finally met, it was an emotional reunion.

“I think when (cats) get lost, they do try to find their owners … I think that when she saw (Amanda) today, she might have recognized her. She might have been out there looking for her for six years,” said Brenda Potts, a volunteer with the Quinte Lost Cat Network, an animal rescue organization in Ontario.

“I didn’t think I’d cry as much as I did,” Graham said a few minutes after the reunion. “It’s incredible, all of these nice people doing this amazing thing for someone they don’t even know.”

It was an emotional reunion.
