Five cow kittens came out of their shells together when they realized they were in good hands.
A litter of five kittens were brought to the Humane Society for Hamilton County in Indiana after they were found outside without a mother.
They were born to a barn cat, who left them one day and never came back for them. “They were unsocialized so they arrived scared and hissy, and would cuddle together and collectively hiss at me when I got close to them,” Kelsey Minier, a foster volunteer of the shelter, shаrеd with Love Meow.
Kelsey set up a comfortable and quiet space for the kittens to relax and decompress, and provided plenty of food at their disposal.
The kittens were around four weeks old and all came with black and white markings that resemble those of a cow. They were very timid and huddled up in a corner of their foster room, trying to keep each other safe and comforted.
“Every time I go into the room, I announce myself in the same voice and say ‘Good morning,’ even if it is the afternoon, and then I feed them so we have gotten into a pattern of positivity and things they likе.
“They no longer hiss at me, and they come running when they know I am in the room.”
