A LITTER OF KITTENS WAS FOUND COVERED IN ICE IN THE COLD. WITH THE HELP OF KIND PEOPLE, THEY ARE THRIVING TO BE THE SWEETEST LAP CATS.
A kind-hearted person working on a rural property in, Virginia, recently found a litter of kittens in a nest with no sign of mom. It was clear mom had not been back since they were born, as they were all covered in a thin layer of ice, and understandably, very cold to the touch.
Knowing these innocents needed help ASAP she brought the litter indoors and contacted a rescue group for help!
“Thanks to @loudoun_cat_coalition who got in touch and facilitated the transfer, I met the lady halfway between our homes (she’s an hour out), and collected this little beeps,” Penny Richards, a foster volunteer for the Animal Welfare League of Arlington.
“They had such a strong will to live! They were icy, yet they were so persistent and full of life.”
That the litter somehow survived the freezing conditions long enough to be rescued is nothing short of a miracle!
Penny gave the five miracle survivors, the names Kahlua, Jäger, Jameson, Hennessy, and Morgan. To help them feel more secure she gave them a soft toy they could snuggle up to.
Things started off well as the whole litter took to the bottle really well, but then diarrhea set in and it was a bit of a struggle trying to maintain weight.
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.
