“Donatella is proving to be an amazing mother and is doing a great job of looking after her kittens. The smallest two were struggling to feed with so much competition for mum’s milk, so they are going to be hand reared by one of our most experienced fosterer’s to give them the best chance.” (Cats Protection)

A group of eight kitties were rescued by the Cats Protection Birmingham Adoption Centre in July. When the rescue workers inspected the kitties, they discovered that almost all of them had extra toes on their paws.

“A group of cats was recently abandoned at our Birmingham Adoption Centre. Two female adults were accompanied by six eight-week-old kittens, several of which were showing signs of mild cat flu, plus eye infections. All were seen and treated by a vet and have now been nursed back to health,” via Cats Protection blog.

“The extraordinary thing is that with the exception of two kittens, all the cats have extra toes! They have therefore been dubbed ‘the Polydactyl family’.”

Meet the Polydactyl family!

How much do you understand your cat’s behavior? The Cats Protection’s new video explains the emotions cats try to communicate through their behavior such as when they roll over, flatten their ears or extend their tail upwards.

Three quarters of cat owners polled by the Cats Protection did not know that an upright tail means a cat is pleased to see them and is a sign of greeting

One in 20 people polled thought their cat rubbing against furniture or walls was due to an itchy face. According to Cats Protection, cats rub against things is a way to deposit scent

Four in ten cat owners did not know that a cat with flattened ears indicated that they are scared and in need of a place to hide.

A third of owners thought their cat lies on its back shows they want their tummies scratched, but in fact it means cats are relaxed and trust you – and want their head rubbed briefly instead

Three tiny kittens were found abandoned inside a tied trash bag. No one knows how they ended up there, but the kittens were taken by the Cat Protection Bridgend Adoption Centre and are ready to start a new chapter in life.

“Sunny, Summer & Sunshine were found in a tied bin bag on one of the hottest days of the year by a holiday maker taking a walk along a coastal path. They have definitely used up one of their 9 lives and thankfully aren’t likely to suffer any long term effects,” said Cats Protection.

Six new born kittens were found in a van inside Parc Prison in Bridgend, South Wales. Today they have grown leaps and bounds.

When the prison staff opened the doors of the van, they saw the kittens and immediately contacted Cats Protection Bridgend Adoption Centre for help.

“It’s the first time we’ve rescued a cat from inside the walls of a well-guarded prison. We don’t know how the mother cat got in there – maybe inside the van.” [See full story of the rescue]

A stray cat mama gave birth in the yard in Parc Prison in Bridgend, UK. The staff at the prison rescued the kittens and helped catch the cat mama so they could be reunited at Cats Protection Bridgend Adoption Centre.

“An employee arrived at work to find some unexpected arrivals in the yard. Nested in the van was a cat with her 6 new born kittens,” said Cats Protection Bridgend Adoption Centre. “Our centre was approached for help, the kittens were no problem but mum proved difficult to catch despite help from staff.”

“The kittens were taken back to the centre, they were fostered by one of our cat carers and bottle fed every 2 hour through the day and night whilst plans were made to catch the mum.”

“Thankfully the plans were successful and 24 hrs later Mum was safely caught and brought back to the centre to be reunited with her kittens. We were apprehensive as there was a risk that she would reject her kittens. A smearing of cat food applied to the kittens fur to disguise human smells worked well & mum was soon contentedly nursing her kittens.”

They named the mother cat Agatha & the kittens Christie, Jessica, Marple, Poirot, Kojak, & Sherlock.

Tipsy the cat mama is thankful because she and her 4 new born kittens are in good hands.

She was found with a big wobbly belly, looking for a safe place to settle in for her kittens. When she was taken in by Cats Protection Bridgend Adoption Centre, she knew she was ready. “(She) gave birth the following day. She had 4 kittens in total and all are doing well,” the shelter said.

Tipsy is busy taking care of her babies. They will be ready for their forever homes when the kittens are big enough.

Motherly love
