My hubby called in a panic and yelled at me to get to town NOW theres a cat in labor and they need help! (What the heck am I gonna do about it???) Anyway, I get there and it's a stray "neighborhood cat, very sweet, little thing had climbed onto someone's porch and delivered a jet black kitten and was pushing hard on another one! She was panicked and running in circles with the kitten half out. Part of her panic was the crowd around her, so I cleared evryone out, got her some towels and sat next to her coaching and stroking her to calm her. She settled right down and pushed baby out. I toweled him off suctioned his mouth and he was nursing with his brother. So we called the shelter as no one wanted to offer her a place to stay and were told they were over run and would have to euthanize them all! Crap! SO I called my vet who put me in touch with a woman in the next town who rescues cats. Bless her, she took them all, we rushed momma and , by this time 3 babies , to her. Her hubby is an attorney in town and she takes in strays and fixes them and adopts them out. Maybe I have a new friend? The thing that really ticks me off is that ALL the people in this area admit they feed the cat, they all claim her, but no one was willing to make room for her and her babies, or even take her to a vet. She didn't just show up in labor, they knew she was pregnant, how did they expect that would end??? What the hell is wrong with people?? The lady who took them in, promised updates, so I will pass them along. I am glad we could help this new little family.
