A very dear cat friend of mine (pictured in the second image in this Christmas post) emailed me the story about this ginger kitty family a few days ago.
Do you remember the story of Rosie and Rufus being rescued from a small town park? Well, a few days ago a woman (who now feeds these park cats every day) found two tiny kittens abandoned in the park. Sadly one had already died but the other was rescued and brought to safety. It seemed someone had just conveniently dropped the "problem" in this park. Unbelievably this cruel "problem solving" repeated itself the very next day. Three tiny ginger kittens abandoned in the exact same spot. The woman who feed the cats picked up these little babies and immediately brought them to a spot where she knew she could find my cat friend and her husband. They managed to get hold of a transport box and they then set off home to bring these now orphaned and desperately crying kittens to safety.
On their way up through town and up the steps to where they live (Greek houses all clustered together high up on a hill) a miracle suddenly happens. A cat starts following them and acts all frantically and insistent. Yes, unbelievably and miraculously it turns out to be kitty mom who's obviously desperately been looking for her babies and by an absolute strike of luck she now accidentally happens to be reunited with her babies again.
My dear friends then brought this entire little family home to safety where they could all enjoy the blissful reunion. As you can see in this above image everyone was very happy.
For the moment a very happy family but these precious babies are all looking to be adopted. My dear cat friends unfortunately have to go back to their country of origin for the moment, so they will be placing this beautiful ginger family with a woman who is already way above the number of cats she can handle (and sadly we just can't responsibly take more... we're already looking to possible homing the kittens from my last post). We're absolutely inundated with cats and kittens looking for homes and this is sadly also the reason for why some people mercilessly choose to discard "the problem" they way they do. Thinking that tiny kittens like these can fend for themselves dumped in a town park.
So, to repeat myself from my last post, if anyone wants to give these Greek kittens a fighting chance and wants to spread the word of them looking for a forever loving home - please share the news (and on Facebook). Thanks so much!
