About two months ago, Roxy, a cat, was given to The Odd Cat Sanctuary in Salem, Massachusetts. After becoming pregnant, the previous owner was unable to keep the woman at home.
Roxy has been taken in by Katrina, a volunteer caregiver for The Odd Cat, so that she can nurture the kittens in a cozy and peaceful setting.
She rapidly grew used to us and was frequently the recipient of our hugs and kisses. We initially didn’t think she was pregnant because of her small frame. This is her third pregnancy, and she hasn’t even turned two,” explains Katrin.
“She didn’t make a sound all night, so we had no idea she was in labor. When we arrived, she had already put everything in order, the kittens were clean, says Katrina. “She kept them in a carrier for weeks until they learned to get out on their own.”
The mother cat was happy to get some help from Katrina. “She always trusted me to take care of the kittens and change the sheets.”
Bennett, Darcy, Bingley, and Collins—the four Fluffies—grew incredibly well and discovered how to walk. The first kitten to venture out of the cozy nest was Bennett, who had a cute “mole” on his left cheek.
“Bennett follows his own drumbeat,” someone once said.
“When his brothers and sisters sleep, he stays awake. When they are cheerful, he nods. When they frolic in the play tunnel, he explores the opposite side of the room,” says Katrina.
“He loves the attention. We often say “where is Bennet?” and he jumps out from behind a cat tree or a bookcase.”
The boy is always ready to cuddle and often falls asleep while sitting.
“The moment we walk through their door, they are trying to get all the love from us. They fight for seats on our shoulders when we sit down, and they strive to warm up on our laps, ”says Katrina.
They like to jump up, grip someone’s shins, and climb as high as they can to attract attention, says Katrina.
Bennett enjoys hiding and running. He will undoubtedly hide under me if I get on my knees and assault my gaping siblings covertly.
Caretakers saw that young Bennett and his sister Darcy established a particular bond as the kittens became more lively and naughty.
They often find themselves drawn together. He embraces her a lot.
Brother and sister like to go everywhere together, bask and fall asleep together in the arms of a foster mother.
Roxy’s mother is relieved to have help with raising her children and can now unwind more frequently in her spare time.
After the kittens are spayed and neutered in a few weeks, Roxy will be fully released from her caregiving responsibilities and be placed in a loving, permanent home.
