In order to prevent the birth of kittens in the harsh outdoors, a cozy abode was provided to a cat just in time. Salty Animal Rescue’s cofounders, Karly and Katelyn Saltarski, were reached out to last month for assistance with a feline that required a safe space for her upcoming litter of kittens.
Hamilton Animal Services discovered her wandering around as a stray. She wasn’t in the best condition, having a sore under her chin and several deep scratches. The team provided her with antibiotics to treat her wounds, and her health improved significantly, according to Karly’s account.
They welcomed her with open arms, and Wren, the pregnant mother cat, felt right at home. She was very friendly with people and would even lay on her side so they could stroke her belly full of kittens.
Wren had to survive alone on the streets, but she can finally unwind in her cozy nest and take a nap. The one who found her thought she was pregnant, and indeed, she gave birth to five adorable babies soon after settling in. Thankfully, Wren had some help during the challenging delivery process, which left her relieved.
As Duck, Swift, Fisher, Sparrow, and Koel suckled simultaneously on her belly, Wren relaxed and stretched her toes on the cozy blanket while exchanging a slow-blink with her foster mom. The good news was that Wren would never have to endure another birthing experience again. Without the intervention of her caretaker, it is probable that not all of her adorable babies would have survived.
“We managed to rescue her just in time, and were able to offer her a secure and cozy space for delivery.” Meet Koel, the smallest but feistiest member of the litter. Despite being only a few days old, he would confidently hiss while snuggling with his siblings, as if he was their fearless guardian.
According to Karly, when newborn kittens come across an unfamiliar scent, they react because they are unable to see or hear. Wren, despite being a great mother to her five kittens, prefers being the center of attention if it weren’t for her responsibilities as a mom.
After some time, the injuries of the female cat have fully recovered and although there are a few marks left, she’s back to her healthy self. Additionally, the five little kittens have now opened their eyes and are making attempts to move around on all fours.
The kittens, who were only two weeks old, were already starting to explore the world around them. They were attempting to leave their cozy nest and taking small steps with their tiny paws. It was an exciting time for them as they were starting to interact with each other and play together.
Mama Wren takes pleasure in spending time with her family while her kittens play and practice their cat abilities. According to lovemeow.com, Wren is an affectionate mother and a great companion. The day when her babies are independent enough to find new homes will be a happy one for her and her humans, who want nothing but the best for her.
