Mom and Kittens Reunited Just in Time
MHS and Detroit Animal Care and Control collaborate together to reunite a mother cat and her six kittens.
July 25, 2016
The six kittens were only a week old. A kind man swooped them up, knowing they had no chance of survival alone.
Earlier that day, he swooped up a cat from the same location, not realizing she had baby kittens. But as soon as he saw those six little ones, he knew she was their mom, and immediately recognized how urgent the situation was. If this new family wasn't reunited before nightfall, the kittens wouldn't make it.
He called Detroit Animal Care and Control, the designated stray holding facility for animals in Detroit, and where he had brought their mother earlier that day, but they had just closed. Knowing that we work with DACC on a regular basis, he contacted us to see if we could help reunite the family.
We quickly reached out to our friends at DACC, and without hesitation, they allowed us to go in after hours to pick up the nursing mom.
The mom was then brought back to our Detroit facility and reunited with her six little ones. They were placed into a loving foster home so they could finishing nursing, gain some weight, and get ready to be adopted.
It's because of your lifesaving support and the collaboration with Detroit Animal Care and Control that we were able to reunite these six babies kittens with their mom and provide them the immediate care they needed.
