A pair of feline buddies teamed up to take care of six adorable kittens, who were part of a mixed family, with the generous assistance of some compassionate humans.
Best Friends Felines, a cat rescue organization in Brisbane, Australia, received a call from a social worker regarding two mother cats and their litters of kittens who were in need of assistance. Despite their busy schedule, the rescue could not turn down the urgent request for help. The two feline mothers, Kokoro (black tortie) and Emika (snowshoe), had six kittens between them, born just five days apart. Upon arrival at the rescue, both mothers were already sharing the responsibility of caring for their babies.
As their little ones happily suckled, the two cat moms cozied up together in a peaceful and content manner. Renae, who lovingly fosters animals for rescue, welcomed this family of eight into her home with open arms. She ensured their comfort by providing a cozy nursery and an endless supply of food for the furry mothers to nibble on throughout the day.
Renae expressed her happiness over the fact that she has two mothers who are taking care of two litters together, which is a new experience for her. She mentioned that Emi owns two black and white kittens, a male and a female, while Koko is responsible for four bigger kittens consisting of three males and a female. The two cat mothers are taking care of each other’s furry kids and ensuring that they are well-fed and clean. It’s a heartwarming scene to witness.
When the six kittens hit 4-5 weeks old, their energy levels skyrocketed. Despite this, Koko and Emi showed equal affection to all of them and were willing to fulfill their every desire. Observing the family dynamic was truly impressive. The kittens were constantly running around and even stealing food from their devoted mothers.
Emi spent most of her time caring for the kittens, while Koko took regular breaks to relax and replenish her energy levels. Whenever Koko needed some personal time, she was grateful to have Emi available to babysit her four little ones.
Renae described Emi as a dedicated cat who always stays close to her kittens. She doesn’t show any favoritism and loves all of them equally. However, there were a few instances where Emi took a break from her maternal duties and sat next to her foster mom to express gratitude for the care and nourishment provided. Renae also mentioned that both Emi and her sister have gentle personalities, which reflects in their offspring’s temperament.
Once the kittens were no longer dependent on their mother’s milk, they became aware that Renae was the source of their meals. As soon as they heard the door open, they would scamper towards it in anticipation of their food. Renae, who had grown accustomed to their eagerness, had to be swift in placing the food down, lest the kittens start pawing at her feet and vocalizing their hunger.
I find these wacky little felines entertaining as they chase each other and playfully jump around. Their actions provide me with endless hours of laughter and enjoyment. As the kittens grew older and explored beyond their cozy abode, Koko and Emi were content to let them explore on their own and take a break from their parental responsibilities.
They started to engage more with their owners, trying to get their affection and cuddles, and rested generously on their cozy bed. Upon meeting the resident felines, Emi instantly bonded with them, whereas Koko displayed her bold and feisty demeanor, acting like she ruled the house.
Koko and Emi pulled off an impressive feat by successfully nurturing their six rambunctious kittens. Raising them was no mean task, but the moms were overjoyed to witness their babies grow into lively and healthy felines and venture out on their own.
These adorable kittens were given a fresh start and never had to fret about finding food or a safe place to stay. Fortunately, they have all been adopted into caring homes where they can live happily. Koko and Emi have also retired from being mothers and now bask in the joy of spending time with their loving humans.
