The birth of a litter of kittens is always worthy of celebration. It’s a joyous time for the mama cat as well as the family taking care of all of the kitties, not to mention how cute it is to have so many furry friends around. While the adorability is certain, it’s necessary for the mother kitty to have a safe, comfortable space in which she can give birth to her babies.
Families of felines know how crucial it is to get them medical attention right away to ensure the process is as smooth as possible. Not every cat mama has a family to look after them. Strays can find themselves facing dangerous situations when they become pregnant, lacking the care they need to make sure their litter is healthy.
Thankfully, rescue organization Hope For Paws is there to lend a helping hand whenever possible, and they turned up at just the right moment when some very tiny lives were in need.
A mother cat had just given birth to four very ill kittens inside the small, cramped stairwell of a building. Residents had made attempts to rescue the family of felines, but the space was too small for them to gain access to where the cats were. Time was running out, so the rescuers from Hope For Paws had to act fast if they wanted to save the kitties.
Eldad Hagar, the founder of the organization, squeezed his way inside the space to save the family at the last minute. He gently moved them out of the small space in order to give them a chance at survival. The final kitten was especially scared, as he was blind and had no idea what was going on, but Eldad carefully coaxed him out and made him feel comfortable enough to be moved.
There was still a lot of work to be done to ensure that the family would be safe, though. To see what happened next, watch the video of the entire rescue. It is stories like these that make us love Hope For Paws and every soul who helps an animal.
