Even cats, with their reputation for independence, should not have to live on the streets.
One could imagine that a stray cat’s life is more richer than that of a domestic cat, but the fact is that the former live in greater precarity, without protection and food, especially when they are young.
Karina, a volunteer with the Animal Welfare League’s Kitten College program in Arlington County, Virginia, received an alarm call from a shelter a few days ago regarding five kitten brothers who were spotted roaming throughout the Shenandoah area in the state’s northwest.
Karina stated, “They informed me they were discovered homeless in the Virginia region and that they are brothers.”
They were, in reality, five little hairballs in need of immediate nursing and feeding in order to flourish and grow healthily, so they were sent to the shelter, where their continual plaintive meows demanded the attention of everyone who walked by.
And that’s how they met Karina, who couldn’t help but be inspired by seeing their small faces behind the shelter’s glass and felt she had a chance to assist them. He did not hesitate to take them home with him.
Karina began to make the kittens feel comfortable and confident in their new home by speaking to them in a quiet, sympathetic, and loving manner. BooBoo, Luke, Flower, Lily, and Blossom finally started to mingle and felt completely saved.
“It took them some time to warm up to me, which is reasonable,” the woman explained.
But the reality is that the happy quintet was completely at peace in their new and cozy house, which had several beds and blankets strewn around. Four of the mustachioed guys swiftly snatched a stack of blankets and covered themselves in them, while the tiniest purred loudly.
Luke and Flower were the shyest and tiniest of the litter, but they were hatching owing to the hundreds of embraces and kisses they received from their human mother.
After two weeks under Karina’s careful and caring care, none of the kittens were fearful of humans, and their various personalities began to flow and express in all of their glory.
Flower is tenacious, courageous, and fearless. It is, nevertheless, loaded with a great deal of love to offer, as long as it is given love and feels it. Luke has changed dramatically; he is making new pals with whom he plays until he is weary.
We must not forget Beast, Karina’s adoptive father, who had already moved in with her and embraced them as his five small children. He adores each and every one of them and accepts them for who they are. When she was a baby, she and her brother, Cider, came to Karina’s house to bury themselves in her heart. They were never seen again.
