Ally, a stray cat lived outside for some time until one day she was found pregnant. "Fortunately some very nice and caring people have been feeding her and contacted the Toronto Cat Rescue," says Christine Gittings, an experienced fosterer. On April 2nd, Ally arrived in her foster home. Christine and her family was not sure when Ally would go into labor, so they had everything prepped for the mama cat and her babies.
Finally the kittens arrived 2 weeks later. "There are 5 in total. The entire thing took about 2 1/2 hours... Ally was awesome and she and her kittens all seem to be doing very well," Christine adds.
It will take some time until Christine is able to determine their sexes. She is planning on naming them later. In the meantime, the kittens are thriving and can't wait to grow up and explore. Ally the sweet mama cat is doing a wonderful job for her babies. With all 5 little ones nursing by her side, she feels like the happiest mom in the world.
