A few days ago, Shea Prior spotted a wandering cat in her backyard. It took some time for her to gain the trust of the furry creature, but she was delighted when it finally accepted the food she offered.
Unbeknownst to her at the time, she was actually helping out a mother cat. It wasn’t until a couple of days into the routine that she noticed the cat was lactating. As they spent more time together, the cat became comfortable enough to let Prior feed her.
While giving some love to the cat, Prior discovered that the feline had been nursing kittens. She felt enthusiastic about helping out and decided to ask the cat to lead her to her little ones. After spending a couple of days feeding the cat, she realized that the animal was producing milk.
At first, the kittens seemed frightened and hesitant to approach her. However, with some encouragement from their mother, they gradually emerged from their hiding spot. Prior recounted how one of the little gray kittens bravely approached her with its tail held high, allowing her to pet it right away. Over time, the other kittens followed suit and allowed her to hold and pet them as well. The following day, the mother cat led Prior to meet her adorable litter of kittens.
Upon seeing the cute family, the woman felt an immediate desire to offer her assistance and took them all under her wing. She made the decision to adopt the mother cat and welcomed her into her home, alongside her two other feline companions. Meanwhile, all of the kittens have been placed with caring families, and they will be officially adopted once their mother approves. The woman has also set up a crowdfunding campaign to cover the vet bills for the spaying of the mother cat and the health check-ups for the kittens. Excited to meet the little ones, she brought the mother cat to her shed and lay down on her side while calling out to the babies to come out and greet her.
All the other cute little kittens have also been placed with loving families and will be adopted once they are a bit more independent and no longer require their mother’s care.
