Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, millions in the United States have lost their jobs. They can’t even afford to eat three times a day let alone feed their pets. However, some kindhearted souls seem to be unable to turn their backs on the poor little animals in need.
One such woman, Shea Prior, fed a mama cat for a couple of days, and she soon saw the results of her good deed when she saw the cat’s happy little family.
Shea Prior noticed this cat wandering around her house for some time. She decided to feed her but it took some time to convince the cat that she meant no harm but to help her.
Prior petted and picked the cat up, and what she saw next made her realize that the cat had been milking and nursing some kittens. The excitement compelled her desire to see the little kittens for herself and she just asked the cat. “I started telling her to show me her babies, and that I bet her babies were so pretty”, she said.
Either the cat understood what she was saying or it was reassured to be a proud mother of “pretty kittens”, the cat led Prior to her babies the next day. “She came running up to me and rubbed on my leg while making the little croaking noise she does,” Prior said, “She led me over to my shed and I looked and saw a couple of little fluffballs staring back at me. She flopped over on her side and started calling them to come out and see me.”
Only one came up to her at first. According to Prior, it was “One of the little gray ones who was super brave”. It didn’t take long before all of them came out in the light and let her hold them and stroke them.
At once she knew she had to adopt them. She took them all in and has now found a home for all the kittens. She decided to keep mama cat and two other kittens to live with her. The rest of the kittens will be given away once they get a little bit older.
She even started a crowd-funding page to help the adorable family. You can donate here.
