In early March, Shelby Thorpe, the founder of Shelby’s Kitten SafeHouse (in Oregon), was informed about a litter of kittens by a TNR (trap-neuter-return) rescuer. The cat mom couldn’t take care of them, and only one kitten survived.
“(The sole kitten) was shivering and the environment was not a good one for her to be in, so the decision was made to have her come to me to be bottle-fed,” Shelby told Love Meow.
Soon after Shelby brought the kitten home, one of her resident cats decided to come see the new baby.
“I forgot to close the door to the kitchen when I went to grab something. When I went back I found Polar (the cat) checking out the new kid. I knew he was going to be a great big brother to her.”
