These two momcats have raised their kittens and are ready to go to a good and loving home! Lily and Xena, rescued by friends, have had their vaccinations and are ready to be spayed and go home with someone who will love them forever.
Both Lilly and Xena are less than a year old, hardly more than kittens themselves. The have had all their shots and been FeLV tested, and Lilly is spayed.
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 the girls and their two litters of kittens, providing food and veterinary care at their own expense.
Now, with a house full of rescued cats and a few being fed outdoors, they need to find homes for these two girls. Lilly and Xena are playful, friendly and affectionate but still somewhat protective though their babies have all been adopted. One of the resident cats, Gracie, older and half blind, is terrified and been hiding, and the humans are very concern.
The rescuers are friends of mine, long-time cat rescuers with a house full of cats they’ve already taken in. 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. Especially in the middle of an overpopulated summer, responsible rescuers working within the system help take the burden off of overcrowded shelters.
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 or e-mail me privately 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.
