Karina is an AWLA Kitten College Program volunteer who was approached to assist 5 kittens found in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, USA. The small ones still needed assistance to get by, as well as food and a warm place to stay.
The felines, who were housed in the shelter, meowed whenever someone approached them. Karina saw that kittens required attention and chose to take them home to offer them with a more comfortable environment in which they could begin to adjust more gently.
Warm blankets were provided for kittens called BooBoo, Luke, Flower, Lily, and Blossom to wrap up in and enjoy long naps and playtime.
“It took them a bit to feel at ease with me, which is normal.”
Luke and Flower, the younger kittens, were quite bashful and spent considerably more time with their adoptive mother between embraces and stroking. Lily, the tabby young girl, was the most mischievous and quickly rose to the position of leader among her brothers.
Flower and Luke’s personalities began to emerge as the days passed, and they began to engage more freely with others.
“Flower has a lot of personality for such a tiny person. She is tenacious, determined, outspoken, and brave. She has a lot of love to give, but you should first love her correctly.”
Luke, the tiny gray one, engaged considerably more with his siblings as the days passed, and he liked the time of play and racing about to explore his new environment.
The kittens’ adoptive mother went on to say:
“Luke transitioned from being a mommy kid to playing with and attempting to impress his older littermates. I’m overjoyed for him and proud of him for maturing.”
Beast, Karina’s cat, adores looking after the kittens her mother takes in and teaching them how to be nice kittens. Beast, according to Karina, is usually quite intrigued when a new member comes.
Karina kept the kittens separate from her other felines for the first two weeks, hoping that they would gradually adjust and prove their health.
“Best was clearly an older brother character after the kittens were allowed to wander the home. He washed them, played with them, and chased them about. It was wonderful to watch him behave like a kitten again.”
Beast and his brother Clider entered Karina’s life as two rescued tiny boys, but they fell in love with her and stayed by her side. Beast is now repaying all the love he received when he entered his mother’s life a few years ago.
The cat has even taught the newcomers to eat from the bowl like an adult cat, and Flower, the young calico, has attempted to emulate him.
The five kittens have thrived tremendously. While Flower, Luke, and Blossom require some more time, their siblings Lily and BooBoo are eager to find a permanent home.
Because to Karina’s prompt action and assistance, the lives of these kittens have been radically transformed, and they will no longer be exposed to the elements or go hungry.
