The Fort Langley, British Columbia-based animal rights organization TinyKittens has received a litter of kittens who need to be saved. They were located in a cardboard box close to the trash can by the Good Samaritan who had heard them sobbing in the pouring rain.
Rescue workers headed straight for the kittens. They were less than four weeks old, and when the animal rights activists came, they meowed and pleaded for attention.
They were adopted by Shelley Roche, the founder of TinyKittens, who placed them in her living room. People gave the fluffy clumps floral names like Snowdrop, Snapdragon, Azalea, Sage, and Dahlia in honor of the miraculously saved cat Stan. -Lily
The kittens were healthy and friendly, in good weight. Looks like they’ve had contact with humans before. “It is fortunate that they got to us in time, in safe, warm and well-fed conditions,” say TinyKittens.
After a long ordeal, when the kittens were examined and fed, they fell into a slumber all together, forming a small purring mound.
Woolen brothers and sisters constantly kept together and supported each other.
Local cat Grandpa Mason (who was rescued when he was feral and turned into the most loving grandpa for helpless orphaned kittens) came to offer the flower kittens what they needed – love and care.
The elderly cat immediately took up his new pupils. He squeezed himself into their bed to hug the youth without obstruction, and began to lick them one by one, generously giving his love to everyone.
The kittens burst into loud purrs and kneaded their paws while Grandpa painstakingly brought them into a clean and well-groomed appearance.
Aura, Mason’s top protege and another TinyKIttens cat rescue, joined the embracing session.
She wasn’t first impressed by the kittens, but after observing how Mason cares for the children, she made the decision to do the same.
The company of a loving grandfather reminds the kittens of their mother, and they are so relaxed that they instinctively begin to look for a milk bar on the cat’s stomach.
Grandpa, although he does not know how to produce milk, does not mind children’s attempts and purrs along with the kittens.
With it, the kittens thrive and prepare for the next stage in life – moving into permanent homes.
It’s been three weeks since the babies were rescued from an uncertain fate. The kittens have grown by leaps and bounds.
Grandpa is very proud!
