It was bitterly cold that night, and a starving stray cat does her best to find a warm place to give birth.
It had been bitterly cold all week. She is desperate and does her best, she manages to find a laundry room with a freezing concrete floor, where she gave birth to five kittens.
Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA) found her all bar one had died soon
after being born from exposure. She was using her body heat, covering the tiny
life form in a desperate attempt to keep it alive.
The sad fact was all the other kittens were born healthy, all she had needed was the right environment to give birth and all five would have survived.
But the good news was one was still alive, the homeowner had immediately called VOKRA when she found the tiny family and asked for help.
Volunteers arrived at the scene ASAP and taken the family into emergency care as quickly as the wintery conditions had allowed.
When Calida arrived at VOKRA she was starving, it was clear she had not eaten in some time. She consumed her meal in record time and then rested nursing her kitten, name Sentrie.
Sentrie is as Chubby as they come, but the same can not be said for her Mom, who starving, consumed everything is given like a hoover.
Now that Calida and her kitten have been a the center for a while the staff believes she may have once been someone’s pet due to her trusting nature.
The staff now hope that with Calida’s story getting out that people will spay or neuter their cats to avoid the unnecessary suffering that Calida and her kittens went through.
Calida and Sentrie grow stronger every day and the little family’s future looks bright. They will both be moved into foster care in the coming days where they will get the chance to recuperate in a home environment and when they’re ready, they’ll be put up for adoption together.
