When Alissa Smith, co-founder of Wrenn Rescues, was contacted for rescuing four little kittens she responded in a quick manner.

“There were only 15 minutes left, and no one else was able to take them but thankfully, the networking group got them out safely, and a wonderful woman named CJ transported them all the way out to Ventura County, California to us,” Alissa told Love Meow.

Apparently the small fluffy balls were  found in someone’s yard along with their mother, but the cat mom quickly escaped and ran off.

Ashley, one of the foster’s volunteers feed them and took care of them over the night.

“The kittens were very obviously well taken care of by their cat mama. When orphaned kittens land into the shelter, they don’t usually see their mama again,” Alissa said. “Another important reason to leave kittens where they are found  instead of taking them to the shelter.”

Ashley and Jenifer were fully prepared to hand-rear the kittens until they were weaned, but then something incredible happened. The guys who dropped the kittens came home and were surprised to find the cat mom outside looking for her babies. “They were able to catch her and bring her in,” Ashley told said.

So, the next day the momma cat was brought to be reunited with her beloved babies.  “I held a baby up to her and she visibly calmed down. We coaxed her out of the carrier with it,” Ashley said. “She went right over and curled up in the middle of her kittens, purring. They all went right to her, and started nursing.”

“I don’t think we have ever seen something so heartwarming,” Alissa said. “So unbelievable that this miracle occurred. To say that the reunion went well is an understatement.”

“As neonatal kitten foster parents, we do everything under the sun to make our fosters happy, comfortable and content.”

“Nothing we can do compares to the blissful feeling of having a mama lying next to them,” Ashley said. “She is a patient mom and her gratitude to be back with her kittens is palpable. These are the happiest and luckiest babies.”
