A cat was given a comfy home just in time so her kittens wouldn’t have to be born outside.
Last month, Karly and Katelyn Saltarski, cofounders of Salty Animal Rescue, were contacted about a cat who needed a nursery for her soon-to-be born kittens.
“She was found as a stray by Hamilton Animal Services. She wasn’t in the best shape with an abscess under her chin and some deep scratches. They gave her some antibiotics and she was looking much better,” Karly shared.
They took her in with open arms, and the expectant cat mom, named Wren, immediately felt at home. She was so comfortable with people and would flop on her side to let them rub her baby-filled belly
After having to fend for herself on the streets, Wren could finally relax in a comfy nest made just for her, and catch up on some sleep. “She was pretty plump and I thought we could expect her little babies any day now.”
Just as they predicted, Mama Wren went into labor shortly after settling into her new abode. She brought five tiny tots into this world and was relieved to get some assistance during the arduous process.
At two weeks old, the kittens were on the move, trying to venture out of the nest, waddling with their little feet.
“They’re finally reaching the age where they begin to play with each other.”
Mama Wren is so content to get some me-time with her people while her kittens cavort with one another, honing their feline skills.
