A cat who has four mouths to feed, now has a comfy place for her kittens. She starts to relax and trust.
Four kittens, about 10-12 days old, arrived at Murphy’s Law Animal Rescue with their cat mother for a chance at a better life. “They came from a hoarding situation, and we are glad we were there to help,” Sarah Kelly, founder of the rescue, shared.
After having lived in close quarters with other cats, the cat mom, Lainey, was relieved to have a clean, comfortable nursery to raise her babies, and plenty of food for herself.
Lainey was very protective of her precious four and kept them close against her belly at all times.
“Our new mama and her four babies are happy to be settling in to their new cozy room with their foster mom, Monica.”
For the first couple of days, Lainey was a bit nervous and stressed. Being a very young mother, she had many uncertainties. Monica gave her the space and time to decompress while keeping an eye on them, making sure they were all well cared for.
“We’re lucky to be able to give them the second chance at a happy, healthy, and spayed/neutered future that they all deserve.”
Slowly but surely, Lainey began to let her walls down. She was appreciative of the abundance of food available within reach, as she needed to constantly refuel.
In just a few days, the four littermates grew in size and strength, and their eyes began to open. “These babies (Libby, Lenny, Lynx, and Linkin) need to fatten up. The big boy is over double (the size of) the smallest one.”
Lainey who weighs only six pounds, is devouring multiple cans of food each day to keep up with her kittens’ appetite. “We are feeding Lainey hearty and nutritious cat food in hopes that it’ll put some meat on her bones.”
