Mothers are constantly aware of what is best for their families, and this also applies to animals.
A stray cat by the name of Mama Ally recently made the decision that she’d had enough of the streets and moved her family to a location where she knew they’d be safe. The mother cat and her two fluffy, white kittens stood in a line on the doorway of a family’s house in North Carolina and peered inside through the glass, wanting to be recognized.
When the homeowner saw Mama Ally with her months-old kittens, she called Sparkle Cat Rescue for help. The rescue stepped in to trap the little family and bring them to safety. But it didn’t take long for them to realize that Mama Ally had one more surprise in store — she was pregnant.
The rescue reached out to their partner, Murphy’s Law Animal Rescue, and founder Sarah Kelly about fostering Mama Ally. Kelly immediately agreed to find a comfortable home where the cat could spend her final trimester in comfort.
And Mama Ally made sure to thank her new humans when she arrived.
As the weeks went by, Mama Ally continued to show why she is Mother of the Year.
“She has the sweetest heart,” Kelly said. “To have cared for her older kittens so long and so well, outside as a stray — seeking out help — she has proven what a heart of gold she has! She gave birth to her five babies like an absolute rockstar and has taken to adoringly caring for them like the best mama in the world.”
