A feline was overjoyed to have found a cozy spot for her litter of kittens. In fact, she was so content that she entrusted the resident dogs with the task of kitten-sitting them.
Not long ago, there was a young feline mother named Angelica who was struggling to take care of her three ailing kittens in a county shelter. The stressful environment only added to her worries and the little ones required a lot of attention and nurturing.
Fortunately, AnimalLuvr’s Dream Rescue came to their rescue and found them a foster home where the mama cat could receive the dedicated care she needed and raise her babies in comfort.
A kindhearted volunteer named Allison Ilcken opened her doors to the family of four and welcomed them with open arms.
Allison told Love Meow how Angelica was a bit scared during the car ride home, hiding in the back of her carrier and not wanting to come out. However, once she had the confidence to explore her new surroundings, she showed just how sweet she could be. Angelica seemed happy with everything she encountered as she sniffed and touched her surroundings. Soon enough, she found herself settling comfortably into her warm, cozy bed alongside her trio.
As soon as the tension dissipated, Angelica’s purring could be heard loudly. Her purr engine was quite robust and she would turn it on in the presence of Allison, keeping it running continuously. Some of the kittens, namely Philip (who had black and white fur) and Peggy (who had grey and white fur), were dealing with severe upper respiratory infections, while Hamilton (who was a tuxedo cat) needed treatment for worms. Additionally, Angelica also required some relief for fever and mastitis.
Angelica showered her three little ones with love without any conditions, all the while being cared for by her loving foster mother. Under her care, the trio quickly began to show signs of improvement, and their playful personalities surfaced.
Once they were ready to interact with other pets, Allison cautiously introduced them to her dogs who were good with cats. At first, Angelica was hesitant around the massive four-legged creatures, but she soon warmed up to them.
After spending some time with her furry companions, Angelica gradually became more comfortable around them. These friendly dogs were very patient with her little ones, allowing them to climb all over them and even nurse from their bellies. Angelica was overjoyed to have some assistance from these four-legged babysitters. Peggy, the most daring and sociable of her littermates, led the way in approaching their new animal friends, with the rest of the litter soon following her lead.
Allison mentioned that she allows a short period of time for them to interact with the dogs every day. Consequently, they seem to have bonded well and love to show affection by rubbing against their legs and snuggling. Angelica, despite being a caring mother, still retains her playful nature as a kitten.
When the kittens have canine companions keeping an eye on them, their owner can finally relax and enjoy some downtime while giving her furry friends the attention they crave. The kittens are just as playful as their mother, as they engage in lively, boisterous activities that make them feel like they’re in charge.
Allison happily reported that Angelica has discovered her tender and gentle voice. The adorable furry companion enjoys the company of humans and often visits Allison and her partner’s bedroom for snuggles and additional pampering. Angelica adorably plops herself onto the floor, waiting expectantly for scratches, praises, and treats.
These three little ones have come a really long way since they were rescued as fragile kittens. They are now lively, curious, and full of energy for playing.
A family of four is all set to embark on their next journey in life. It’s great news that two of the kittens have finally found a loving and indulgent family who will take good care of them forever.
Peggy and Hamilton have both been adopted together, as a sibling duo.
Mama Angelica is looking forward to a bright future with her kitten, Philip. She dreams of finding a loving forever home where they will be valued and cared for.
Angelica lives life to the fullest, enjoying each moment with the energy and playfulness of a kitten. Her loyal canine companions are always ready to provide a comforting paw whenever the feline family needs some snuggles.
