Three bonded kittens had their dream come true after weeks of waiting for the right home.
It all started when a scrawny stray cat wandered up to a family’s yard for food this summer, and she just kept coming back. The homeowner soon noticed that her belly was growing, and suspected that she was pregnant.
Stef and Johanne, animal rescuers based in Montreal, Canada, stepped up to help and were able to get the expectant cat mom to safety. By then, she was near the end of her pregnancy and needed safe shelter.
After a trip to a veterinary clinic, they brought her home so she could have a quiet, comfortable place to have her kittens.
The sweet tabby ate to her heart’s content and then curled up in her comfy new nest. She could finally relax and get some much-needed shut-eye.
Stef and Johanne took turns to look after her in preparation for the birth. A few days later, the cat went into labor.
