A feline unexpectedly arrived at a household’s doorstep to give birth to her young and wound up offering assistance to some parentless kittens as well.
Kara Yancey, a foster volunteer of Living The Dream Rescue in Phoenix, Arizona, recently had a heartwarming encounter with a feline. One day, she noticed a cat outside her house, eagerly peeking through the screen door. It seemed as though the cat, named Sunflower, was drawn to Kara’s home for a reason. Kara believes that her living room window, which is opened during the nice weather, attracts pregnant females to the backyard porch where her own cat, Charlie, resides. Hence, when Sunflower, an orange stray, made an appearance on their porch one night, they began to feed her. Upon closer inspection, they quickly realized that she was with kitten.
Sunflower the feline came into Kara’s life as a homeless cat. Initially, she was timid and wouldn’t let anyone come close to her. However, Sunflower kept returning to Kara’s house and waited patiently outside for food. As time passed, the expectant mother cat became more comfortable with her food providers and even allowed them to pet her. Unfortunately, nobody came forward to claim the tabby, so Kara and her rescue team decided to help her out.
Kara, known as @azkittenfostermama on social media, had to patiently work to earn Sunflower’s trust. However, once the hesitant cat made the courageous decision to move into Kara’s home, their relationship took a positive turn. Sunflower transformed into an affectionate feline who simply craved pets and attention. Feeling secure in her new environment, Sunflower finally opened up and let her guard down.
Kara, who goes by the Twitter handle @azkittenfostermama, shared that a few days after she took in a sweet tabby cat, the feline gave birth to five adorable and healthy kittens – three males and two females. Kara revealed that they named the kittens after plants and flowers, just like the mom cat, who they saved just in time. The names of the kittens are Aster, Clover, Violet, Iris, and Sage.
Sunflower was a loving mother to her adorable litter of kittens, taking great care to ensure their safety and comfort. She was grateful for the warm shelter and plentiful food provided by Kara. Little did she know that fate had other plans in store for her. One day, Kara received a message from her rescue about two helpless kittens left in a Kleenex box outside a veterinary clinic.
Sunflower, the cat, was blessed with five adorable kittens. Sadly, these little ones were struggling to survive and their condition was quite precarious. Fortunately, with the help of a veterinarian, they were nursed back to health through antibiotics and proper care. Soon after their recovery, the rescue team decided to test if Sunflower would take them in as her own. This was a crucial step for the kittens’ survival as they were still very young and fragile. Thankfully, Sunflower welcomed them with open paws and has been taking care of them ever since.
Two kittens were left in a Kleenex box outside a veterinary clinic. Upon their arrival, Momma Sunflower, who was already fostering other kittens, immediately noticed the crying babies and showed concern. When their caretaker, Kara, entered the room, Momma Sunflower was waiting at the door for her.
Sunflower the cat is seen cuddling with her kittens, including two adopted babies, in a heartwarming display of love and affection. According to Kara, who fosters cats, Sunflower took to the new kittens immediately, bathing and nursing them with motherly care. Kara also notes that Sunflower has been very protective of all her babies, wrapping her paws around them whenever possible. To ensure that all seven kittens are well-fed and cared for, Kara has been providing supplemental feedings, as nursing can be quite demanding. The video captures the beautiful bond between Sunflower and her kittens, showcasing the love and devotion that cats can bring to our lives.
According to Kara, who goes by @azkittenfostermama on social media, the seven little kittens she has been taking care of are all doing great. Additionally, two new members of the feline family named Cedar and Ren have put on a lot of weight and are thriving. Sunflower, the mother cat, is also blossoming into a well-adjusted indoor cat under Kara’s care. Once the kittens are weaned and big enough, they will undergo spaying or neutering, be microchipped, and be ready for adoption to loving homes. Sunflower will also receive the same care and find her own forever home where she can live comfortably without having to fend for herself on the streets.
According to Kara, also known as @azkittenfostermama, Sunflower has transformed into an incredibly loving and caring foster cat. Kara praises Sunflower for being an exceptional mother to her own litter as well as taking on the role of surrogate mother to orphaned kittens.
Kara, who goes by @azkittenfostermama on social media, is a person who dedicates their time to fostering kittens.
