Mama Cat And Kittens Need The Public’s Help

Sponsored by:

San Andreas, CA — After the trauma of losing an eye, this cat is getting the healthcare she needs to care for her babies, and she needs the public’s help.

Calaveras County Animal Services relays that the mother cat was found with four kittens by a good Samaritan and was brought to the shelter in need of dire help.

“We don’t know what happened to this cat, but she was in urgent need of veterinary services, so we rushed her to the hospital, and she underwent an emergency enucleation (removal of the eye),” recounted shelter officials.

The mama and kittens are currently with a foster parent to help her recover in a safer, quieter place. Despite her condition, the black cat is caring for her babies very well, say animal services officials. However, foster supplies such as milk formula, feeding bottles, heating pads, etc. are costly. Shelter officials ask the public, “So that we may continue helping animals like her and so many others that are brought to us for help! If you can help, please visit our Amazon Wish List.”
