Mikey is an 8-months-old cat adopted by Hillary. Mistaken to be a boy, Mikey was taken to the vet to get neutered when they realised he was actually a she and she was pregnant with kittens.
Unfortunately, Mikey’s kittens were born too early, and she lost them one by one. Totally devastated, the mama cat frantically searched for her babies and became depressed. Hillary couldn’t bear to watch Mikey’s grief so she got in touch with Amanda Lowe, a foster mother to abandoned kittens through a cat rescue called Dori’s Darlings.
As fate will have it, Amanda had just begun nurturing three abandoned day-old kittens, still with their umbilical cords attached. She named them Teddy, Abby and Lily and before she introduced them to the mama cat, Amanda said in a soothing voice “I have some babies for you so you can be a mummy again.”
Mikey took to the kittens straight away, grooming them and hugging them. 15 minutes later, she was nursing her new babies.
Life is full of ups and downs but it seems to always work out. Mikey gets to fulfill her role as a mother and the kittens are given a second chance at life with a cat full of love (and milk) to give.
