Black and Tabby, Kittens and Momcats, Ready to Go Home!

These two momcats with new litters of kittens rescued by friends are ready to go to a good and loving home! Momcats Lily and Xena, formerly Lydia but with a habit of fiercely protecting her babies, are ready to be spayed and go home with someone who will love them forever. Both moms are sure you’ll fall in love with all their kittens. Both litters were born a few days apart in June and have all grown healthy and playful.

Mimi says, “I remember those days…this was me five years ago. Let’s help these mama cats get the same sweet deal I did!”

Their rescuers took them into their homes to foster and are working with the owners to find the moms and their kittens homes, and to make sure that all other resident cats are spayed and neutered.

And the people who rescued them are friends of mine, long-time cat rescuers with a house full of cats they’ve already taken in, and they are paying the expenses for these rescues out of their own pockets. I always help shelters and rescues, but I also like to help the responsible rescuers who work within their own neighborhoods, managing and feeding strays and ferals, educating individuals, getting cats spayed and neutered and finding homes for lots of kittens and abandoned adult cats.

All cats will have their shots, and the mama cats will be spayed.

If you’d like to adopt one of these cats, or you’d like to help the rescuers in their mission for this summer, please comment below and I’ll put you in touch. Thanks so much for helping some of the people on the front lines!

A little bit of background…

First there was Mama Lilly, who was “chasing the local free-spirit (B-Boy) off his favorite porch around the corner,” and “making a mess all over [the neighbor’s] house” according to the neighbor, but Mama Lilly had a reason for all this—a few days later came the birth announcement, “OMG, she has kittens!”

Then, not two weeks later, another black kitty turned up at the same house, under the same porch, this time with kittens in tow, panting in the heat.

These two girls could be sisters, the kittens could have all the same fathers, but one thing for sure—they are all looking for good homes. Both are excellent mama cats and very sweet-tempered and loving. Perhaps they are also very happy to be inside with their kittens.

    Thanks Bernadette – things have been moving quickly this week. Yogi is the only one to have actually left – he’ll have a friend to play with and doting parents. Fred and his brother Jon Luke are going to be living together in Brighton Heights – we hope, we’ll know for sure on Saturday. Sadie Rose will have a great home with another kitty and two long-time cat lovers in about a week. Teresa will miss her the most. Lilly will be living in Greentree with a woman who works in my building.

    That leaves Zena and her little tabby boy, Sparky. Zena is only a year old and very affectionate – I’d like to place them together if possible, I hate to think of him being by himself with no one to cuddle and play with.

    • Barb, that’s the best news! You have a magic with finding homes! Keep me posted!
