A cat losing her home found kind people to take her just days before she had kittens.
A family was in a tough situation when they were being evicted and trying to get their cats into safe, good homes. They reached out to Emilie, an animal rescuer based in Milwaukee, WI, as their three cats had nowhere to go.
“When I got there, I realized that the third cat was heavily pregnant. At just under a year old, she’s still a kitten herself. I named her Lilah, and she is an absolute angel,” Emilie shared with us.
Two cats went to their foster homes to be cared for by volunteers. Emilie took on the expectant cat mom, so she could have a comfortable nursery to raise her babies.
A few days later, Lilah went into labor which ended up being very challenging and stressful for the young mom. Immediately after she gave birth to her first kitten, she rejected her.
The kitten was very small and frail. Emilie was able to intervene just in time and brought her to safety.
Four kittens made it through birth, and Lilah was able to start caring for her three that were significantly larger and stronger than their sister, Twinkle.
Emilie took on the little runt to give her a fighting chance at life. “Twinkle was nice and cozy in the incubator, being fed every two hours.”
“When Twinkle was born, she was only 60 grams. She was barely half the size of her siblings,” Emilie shared.
