The Chatons Orphelins Montréal rescue facility in Canada recently stepped in to save a bunch of cats at a family home outside of Montreal that were no longer being cared for by their family. When the rescue facility was informed that four more kittens from the same family needed assistance, they acted quickly.
Miléna and Stefany, two volunteers, learned about the kittens’ situation and came to the rescue. They were able to transfer the four kittens to a secure facility to care for them after an hour and a half journey.
“The family’s daughter informed us that her mother had returned three cats, and the kittens had to be euthanized.”
When the family said they wanted to retain the adult cats, the rescue organization offered to assist spay and neuter them so the cycle could be broken and the cats could live in peace with their people.
“When the kittens came, they were just five weeks old. Binx (orange), Spritz (orange), and Volt (beige) are the three males, while Britt is the only female (tortoiseshell). They were underweight and needed parasite treatment.
During their travel to their new home, the kittens snuggled together. Britt squished herself between her brothers for further “protection.”
They went to their foster home after a medical checkup. There, foster volunteers Manon and Anais cleaned up the kittens and started the weaning process.
The four cats immediately came out of their shells after settling into their foster home. They used to do everything together, and it was common to find them napping in a tangle of embraces. They also seldom left the group.
The kittens began to seek attention and affection from their guardians once they felt safe and secure. Little ones like curling up in their foster mother’s arms for a few hugs or sitting on a warm lap. They want to do everything with their siblings and are rarely seen apart from them.
The kittens are thriving in their foster home thanks to volunteer care, medical attention, decent food, and plenty of affection, filling the space with purrs and meows; feline entertainment is constantly the order of the day.
