A Stray Cat Approaches Rescuers And Leads Them To Her Three Helpless Kittens
Every mother’s instinct is to protect her children, whether human or animal, and what this cat did in New South Wales, Australia, is an excellent example of what a mother can do to save her creatures.
A passerby noticed a family of cats on the side of the road, consisting of a mother and her three kittens.
He immediately contacted CatRescue 901, a Terrey Hills-based rescue organization. When rescuers arrived, the cat approached them and brought them to her three babies. She was only skin and bones, and she had clearly done everything she could to feed and protect her animals.
All four cats were in need of medical attention, and when they arrived at the shelter, it was obvious they were starving. After assessing their condition, veterinarians realized that the three kittens had eyelid agenesis, a congenital condition that leaves them without eyelids and would have left them blind if not properly treated.
They were fed and bathed, and allowed to rest on comfortable beds. Medication was also administered and the mother cat, Elodie, is doing better, especially after being spayed.
Jenny, the founder of the rescue group, said they were in the right place at the right time. “Not many people could afford eye agenesis surgery because it is very expensive,” she explained. The road to recovery is still ahead of them, but what matters is that their mother, Elodie, is confident they are in excellent hands.
This is Elodie, a feline mom who did her best to keep her kittens fed and safe, but was clearly struggling to keep up.
When a stranger called CatRescue 901’s rescuer, she headed to her heroes and led them to where her kittens were.
They seemed to be friendly and harmless.
However, further examination revealed that they needed emergency medical attention.
They all had a condition known as ocular agenesis, which can lead to blindness if not treated promptly.
Once brought to the shelter, they were bathed, fed and given a proper rest.
They were lucky to be in the right place at the right time.
Eyelid agenesis is a problem that few rescue organizations can handle.
The road to recovery is still long, but they are now safe and cared for by a professional and caring team.
