These two mother cats were spotted on the street in the United States. They had each recently given birth and were caring for each other’s babies together. The kittens were about a year old, and there was an incredibly strong bond between them. Kind people reported them to one of the shelters, and the kitties were taken to safety.
The mother cats and their kittens ended up at the Exploits Valley SPCA shelter. The cats themselves were skinny and hungry but did everything they could to keep their kittens comfortable. Volunteers took care of the whole big family and restored the health of the moms.
Soon the family was brought to a house for rehoming. There, mother cats became much calmer, they trusted people and understood that their kittens were safe there. At the re-home, the mothers continued to take care of their babies, of which there were eight together.
Meanwhile, the kittens were actively growing up healthy and cheerful. They were always under the close attention of the caring cat moms. The mothers, nicknamed Xeno and Ripley, never left each other and did everything together: feeding, sleeping, eating, and playing.
As the kittens grew older, they were given to loving homes. At this moment, the mother cats themselves are waiting with hope for their future owners. May they soon find a better home, and preferably together!
