One morning, as Sarah walked out onto the porch, she saw a white cat who needed help. She was pregnant and already had two adult kittens with her.
She was let in, though, and immediately assumed temporary charge of eight distinct creatures all at once. Five of them were still in the womb. ‘ About two months ago, the cat I called Ela brought her kittens to my porch for the first time.
They seem to be a month or so old. Sara thinks. She phoned the vet, who after feeding the mother cat and her kittens brought them in for a checkup.
Then a healthy cat family returned to their temporary home.
While Sara was looking after her, Ela ultimately gave birth to five healthy kittens, and she later relocated with them to another foster household.
The mother cat quickly became comfortable in the new home and around guests.
Her kindness and concern for all of her kittens never ceases to amaze her owners. While Ela’s two older kittens were ‘adopted’ and moved to new owners, her smaller kittens are still with mom but will soon be adopted by other owners.
