Asking for help can be scary, but as a mother, there’s nothing you wouldn’t do to keep your babies safe.
That’s something this stray kitty realized after getting pregnant and getting ready to give birth.
The black cat had been living as a stray for a long time, but when she was about to become a mother, she knew that she didn’t want her kittens to grow up on the streets.
Luckily, she knew exactly where to turn to.
About a year ago, a stray cat started hanging around Ida Floreak’s house.
Floreak had a kitty of her own, and she soon realized that it was her kitty that was drawing the stray to her backyard.
The black stray, who Floreak nicknamed Salami, was visibly enamoured by Floreak’s kitty.
And Salami didn’t seem to care that the house cat clearly wasn’t as interested in her as she was in him – she just kept coming back to the yard to say hi anyway.
When Floreak began putting out food for Salami, the sweet stray started visiting the house every day.
Each morning she would announce her presence by meowing outside the door and happily accept the day’s meal.
After some time, Floreak noticed that Salami was starting to get rounder.
And it wasn’t just a result of the free food she was receiving – Salami was clearly pregnant.
Ever since Salmi started hanging around the backyard, Floreak had tried to win the cat’s trust and attempted to get close enough to the skittish cat to catch her and bring her to the vet.
She wanted to get Salami spayed and vaccinated, but though Salami appreciated all the free food she was getting, she still kept her distance and would not let Floreak get close enough to grab her.
Floreak has found forever families for all four kittens, and when they’re old enough, they’ll move in with their new families and start the next exciting chapter of their little lives.
As for Salami, she’s already exactly where she needs to be. Floreak is her mommy, now and forever, and she’ll never have to worry about anything ever again.
