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.”

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.

Norman the kitten was plucked from a Kroger parking lot. He was found by the right person at the right time. Receptionist Mary Kay from Hebron Cat Hospital saw the little stray and knew just what she needed to do next.

They treated the little guy and gave him all the care and love he needed to thrive. Mary Kay took him home to foster. Her chocolate Lab Harley fell in love with the little one while teaching him how to socialize. “Mission accomplished, I’d say,” Hebron Cat Hospital wrote.

“She and Dr. Whissen nursed him to health and now you’d never know he came from harsh beginnings.”

A tiny kitten whose eyes weren’t even opened was saved by a kind person who saw something moving in a bag and found the little guy abandoned inside.

“At 3 days old he was placed in a bag and tossed from a window at a stop sign. The person behind the evil doer saw the bag move and got out to investigate and found our sweet guy. He was immediately rushed to the vet , who called me because I specialize in rescuing orphans. He still had his little umbilical stump. Since he was found by The way side and given a brand new lavish life I decided Moses was a fitting name.” – says Tammy (Moses’s foster Mommy).

Meet little Moses who was found in a bag when he was just 3 days old.

A litter of tiny gray kittens were given a second chance at life before they were even born.

The owner of the mother cat wasn’t interested in having the kittens, and unwilling to let the cat mom give birth and found a vet to do the spay-abort.  “Apparently the mama was someone’s pet, and unspayed, and they were getting help from the SPCA to get a low-cost spay done,” said Kimberly Jennery from Bitten By A Kitten Rescue, a small rescue group in San Pablo, California. The vet who handled this case really tried to arrange it so that it allowed the mother to give birth, but the owner didn’t want the kittens, so Kimberly came to the rescue and took in the litter of six.

“They are getting fatter by the minute and turning into real little kitten persons! They are 4 boys, and 2 girls.”
