A beautiful calico was found with a pregnant belly by a volunteer from Cat Adoption and Rescue Efforts (C.A.R.E.). The young kitty was very timid and needed a lot of help.

"I rescued Summer from a feral colony when she was eight months old and pregnant," Kelsey of C.A.R.E. told Love Meow.

"At first she was very shy, but I worked with her every day, gaining her trust. Soon she learned that humans meant good things to eat and a gentle scratch under the chin. Just when it seemed like things were turning around for Summer, she went into labor..."

Because she was so young, she went into a lot of complications. "I rushed her to the vet, who told me they would have to do an emergency C-section," Kelsey said.

"As they prepared for surgery, I braced myself to lose all of the kittens. And then, against all odds, three tiny miracles were born. All of the vet techs and both vets were there, and all of us were moved by the experience - one of the vet techs was in tears."

"Splash was the smallest and weakest of the kittens. I worried that she might not make it, so I gave her extra feedings from a syringe.

"Summer took extra special care of Splash and was very protective of her baby. She had grown attached to me, but she let me know that she didn't want me to take Splash out to feed and weigh her - she wanted her baby to be close to her."

"She groomed her and cuddled her and always made sure she got enough to eat," Kelsey said.

Thanks to Summer, Splash survived and thrived!

"Eventually, the kittens grew up, and Splash's two siblings were adopted together.

"Summer grew even more attached to little Splash and I often would see them snuggling together," Kelsey told Love Meow.

"Splash and Summer's remarkable story is now missing just one thing: their forever home together.

"Since Summer is rather shy at first, they will need a quiet home and a patient family that will give them time and help them feel safe and comfortable."

They constantly give each other cuddles and comfort.

"They've been up for adoption for several months and have been overlooked because it's hard to find a home for a shy bonded pair."

They share an inseparable bond.
