A feline was overjoyed to find a cozy spot for her litter of kittens. She was even generous enough to allow the local dogs to take care of them from time to time.
Angelica and her Three Kittens at Ilckenzoo
A few weeks ago, a young cat mom named Angelica and her three sickly kittens were brought into a local county shelter. Being in a shelter environment was stressful for Angelica, and all of them required a lot of care and attention.
Fortunately, AnimalLuvr’s Dream Rescue came to their rescue and found a foster home for them. This way, Angelica could receive dedicated care and attention, and her babies could grow up in a comfortable environment.
Allison Ilcken, a kind-hearted foster volunteer, welcomed the family of four into her home with open arms.
The kitties were in poor health when they were saved at the Ilcken Zoo. Allison, who shared her story on Love Meow, discovered that despite being timid during their journey home, Angelica was incredibly friendly. Once she felt more comfortable exploring her new surroundings, Angelica was content with everything she encountered and quickly made herself at home in her warm, snug bed with her three companions.
Angelica was thrilled to finally be in a foster home. She showed her contentment by purring loudly and kneading Allison’s lap. Her purr was so strong that it sounded like a thunderstorm. Angelica would turn on her purr engine whenever Allison was nearby and would keep it running continuously.
Unfortunately, Angelica wasn’t the only one who needed help. Two of her kittens, Philip (black and white) and Peggy (grey and white), were suffering from severe upper respiratory infections. Another kitten, Hamilton (tuxedo), had worms and needed treatment. Even Mama Angelica herself was in need of relief from a fever and mastitis.
Angelica received endless love from her foster mother as she took care of her and her adorable trio. With the help of such great care, Angelica’s little ones began to show signs of improvement and became more playful than ever. After some time, they were ready to socialize and get to know Allison’s cat-friendly dogs. Angelica was initially hesitant about these big creatures on all fours, but soon warmed up to them.
Philip and Peggy were enjoying their time with Olive, the resident dog at the ilckenzoo. Angelica, who was initially hesitant around the dogs, eventually became more comfortable with them through positive interactions. The canines were very gentle and allowed Angelica’s little ones to crawl all over them and even nurse on their bellies, which made Mama Angelica very happy. Peggy, being the most adventurous of her siblings, approached the canine kitten-sitters first, and soon her littermates followed suit.
Allison shared with Love Meow that she allowed Peggy and Hope@ilckenzoo to spend some time each day with the dogs. As a result, the cats have become more affectionate towards them, often rubbing against their legs and cuddling. Although Angelica is a caring mother, she still has a playful streak being a kitten at heart.
Ilckenzoo’s Olive is dedicated to taking care of kittens. Olive enjoys some peaceful moments, attention from her owners, and being affectionate whenever the dogs take over kitten-sitting duties. The kittens have followed in their mother’s footsteps and love to play, often engaging in playful roughhousing and running around as if they own the place.
According to Allison, Philip and Olive at Ilcken Zoo, Angelica has discovered her charming and gentle voice. She enjoys company and frequently visits their bedroom for cuddles and additional care. Allison further mentioned that Angelica lies down on the floor and waits patiently for scratches, compliments, and tasty treats.
Angelica enjoys indulging in playtime! The three feline companions have come a long way from their initial days when they were rescued as weak kittens. They are now in the pink of health, exploratory, and full of energy, making playtime even more fun.
