Mother of 4 newborn kittens takes on 2 orphans found cold and alone on a California sidewalk

This is Jody, a beautiful new mother currently in the care of Nine Lives Foundation in Redwood City, California. Jody recently gave birth to four kittens and has just taken in two more orphaned babies on Wednesday.

The dark gray tabbies were found cold and alone on a sidewalk. With nowhere else to go, as shelters do not routinely rescue newborn orphaned bottle babies, they were brought to the no-kill shelter by a Good Samaritan.

Cats are often accepting of kittens who are not their own and take them in and raise them.

JODY, the beautiful young grey mom seen yesterday with her 4 kittens has just taken in 2 more ORPHANED KITTENS today as if they were her own….check out the beautiful dark grey tabbies found cold & alone on a sidewalk, feeling at home with Jody & their 4 step-brothers & sisters 🙂 Cats are often very accepting of other abandoned kittens and take on multiple orphans without hesitation. The orphans (from Castro Valley) had no where else to go as shelters do not routinely rescue orphaned bottle babies….so they wère brought to Nine Lives Foundation in Redwood City, proud to be a no-kill shelter. Please SPAY & NEUTER to save precious little lives like these…please join our $9 for 9 Lives campaign to help build our new shelter to save more cats & kittens like these!

  1. My spayed at 8 weeks ( by an animal shelter not me) Mercy took on raising Tera’s ( my stray ) cats babies at 3 weeks when there was an opening for mama at the rescue.( she was just adopted !) and cared for them like a mama cat while I took care of the bottle feeding. Even if a female cat can’t nurse the right one can be a valuable asset in raising the babies.
