Near the house of an old couple, Mama Clue was discovered to be residing outside. The lovely cat’s eyes were totally crusted shut when the couple’s son dropped by for a visit. Three small kittens were waiting for her when he followed her to the cave where she had been resting.
Mama Clue knew she and her children needed assistance, so as soon as she had the chance, she directed someone to them.
The man who found the little family contacted Coastal Bend Cat Rescue, who quickly agreed to sponsor a vet visit for Mama Clue and her kittens.
The rescue didn’t have an open foster home at the time, but they knew they couldn’t just leave the family outside, so they quickly came up with a plan to make it work.
Mama Clue was given an antibiotic treatment at the time because it was believed that she had severe eye infections that were causing her eyes to become permanently shut, according to Mary Huckabee, a representative with Coastal Bend Cat Rescue.
We moved foster homes to make place for Clue and her babies in a family with an established mama/baby foster because we were concerned for the health of the 1-week-old infants if they had to stay outside with a sick mother.
Everyone was relieved that the three kittens were saved in time because all of them needed medical attention. After Mama Clue had settled in, her foster mother discovered that she had never been partially blind and that her eyes weren’t only diseased. However, she had managed to live on her own and raise her children admirably, even ensuring that they were located and transported to a secure location.
Mama Clue, Candyland, Monopoly, and Chutes and Ladders were all given as family names. All of the kittens started to recover right quickly, and Mama Clue has continued to demonstrate time and time again why she is the finest mother ever.
“Mama Clue is a great mom — being blind doesn’t bother her at all,” Huckabee said. “She was initially very protective of her babies and loved having a Kitty Kasa to keep her babies safe in. She would supervise her foster mom very closely when she removed the babies from their cube for daily weighing and medications.
Occasionally she would be surprised when a baby would meow from a place where she didn’t expect. She was not very happy when the babies started getting mobile around 3 weeks of age — they didn’t stay where she put them! She would carry them back to ‘their place’ over and over before she realized she was fighting a losing battle and that her babies were now ready to explore.”
In addition to taking care of her infants, Mama Clue has become the sweetest person ever after feeling comfortable in her foster home. She like being scratched and having her tummy rubbed, and she always jumps up to welcome her foster mother.
Despite having spent her whole existence as an outdoor cat, she is overjoyed to be living the high life and has no intention of ever going back.
Once everyone is old enough and completely healed, the kittens and Mama Clue will all be ready to find their forever homes. Until then, they’re enjoying life in the safety of the home that Mama Clue found for them.
