A family in Abitibi-Temiskaming, Canada, moved into a new rural house earlier this year. They quickly learned that their barn was home to various wild creatures.
The cat family had been living there for quite some time, it turned out. Landlady Joanie hurriedly set up warm shelters in the barn, and in the meanwhile planned to capture the kittens and place them in good hands, knowing how harsh Canadian winters can be.
The lady planned to capture a wild cat mother, sterilize her until she became pregnant again, and then deliver the kittens to animal rights activists. However, no one answered her phone, so she had to write to the Chatons Orphelins Montréal group in Montreal, which was 700 kilometers distant.
“She alerted veterinarians and shelters in Abitibi, but there was no one to help,” says Celine Krom from Chatons Orphelins Montréal.
After setting humane traps, one kitten was caught, but the rest were not so simple. A young cat named Jules was shy at first but quickly thawed out to people, having received food and affection.
Joanie, on the other hand, was attempting to apprehend the other furries. A wonderful individual was located who offered to carry the kitten to get medical help right away.
“Jules was a model citizen the entire trip to the vet, then he went to the overexposure for socializing.”
“He immediately found how much fun it was to play with soft toys,” Celine continues, “and even made friends with the neighborhood cats.”
Jules also got to experience extended embraces from his foster mother Marilyn, and he was notably more loving as a result. The thrill of being taken up and carried about like a kid was cherished by the former barn dweller.
The surviving kittens, Junot and Yass, were found safe a few days later, after a lot of patience and determination.
The two furries were eager to be reunited with their brother Jules after traveling a long distance and seeing the vet.
Joanie not only saved the three, but she also recognized the parents, the cat, and the cat, and considered capturing them for physical reasons.
Wild cats and cats will live in a barn that they will consider their home, but there will be someone to care for them, feed them, and keep them warm during the winter.
“Yesterday all the kittens were reunited at the foster home. Yass was very shy after all the trials and changes, but Junot quickly began to run around the house and frolic with her brother Jules, ”says Celine.
Junot follows Jules on his heels and becomes more and more confident every day. Yass is watching everyone from hiding but gradually loosens up.
They play with the neighborhood cats, eat to their hearts’ content, and sleep soundly in their beds, surrounded by nice blankets.
Jules was thrust into the limelight right away. He enjoys conversing with others and spending time with family. He is the one who encourages his siblings to gaze out the window at the birds or play with toys.
These kittens will never go hungry or shiver in the cold again; instead, they will find loving homes with whom they will never have to deal with the cold!
Read these characteristics which almost all cat lovers have in common:
INTROVERTED AND SENSITIVE
It’s the nature of cats that they are not friends with everybody, and the same trait can be seen in their owners too. Usually, they live alone and are happy with their independent lifestyle. They are introverts but are comfortable hanging around with other people. However, they would need some me-time to relax and recharge.
CAT LOVERS LEAN TO LEFT
It has been observed that people with liberal political leanings prefer cats over dogs. You might be a liberal dog lover or a conservative cat owner; if you’re a liberal, you love cats and vice versa.
CAT OWNERS ARE OPEN-MINDED
Five traits – conscientiousness, neuroticism, extraversion, agreeableness, and openness are often seen in most cat lovers. As compared to dog owners, people who have cats as pets are more open and therefore, have greater artistic creativity.
Just like their pets, cat lovers seek attention from people around them. They like to be the centre of all conversations. At times, cat owners rely on their pets for emotional support.
THEY RESPECT CATS MORE THAN ANYONE
Cat people respect cats more than humans, in general. The saddest sight for a cat lover is to see the animal on the streets without a home. Cat lovers are often seen making a special effort to rescue or rehabilitate homeless cats.
