Glenda the cat mama and her kittens are the lucky ones rescued from a shelter that could not keep them. Stacey Chen met Glenda and another cat mama Kelly who looked just like Glenda, but Kelly was not so lucky. Knowing Glenda might end up in the same path, Stacey immediately reached out for help to get Glenda and her family to a foster home. "I didn't have any room at my house for anyone (Stacey had and still has a full house of rescues she took in from other shelters), ... (so) I put it on my Facebook page.... Amazingly someone I know saw the picture and called me not 5 minutes after I posted the picture," said Stacey.
Stacey's friend was not planning on fostering until May, but knowing what might happen to the cat family, she wanted to make it work, and she did.
"When I went to get Glenda and her four kittens, they came out with Glenda and seven kittens. Apparently three came into the shelter without moms and they just stuck them on Glenda and she took them on as her own. Wonderful right?" Stacey added.
Glenda is being a wonderful cat mama, caring for her own babies and the adopted ones. She is nurturing and loving. The kittens are getting stronger and bigger everyday. When they weigh enough, they will be put up for adoption.
Don't forget that cat mamas also need homes. Many kittens that Lizzy the cat mama cared for have found their forever homes, but Lizzy is still waiting for hers. If you know someone who can provide her a home, you can contact Good Karma Pet Rescue.
