Newborn kittens reunited with their mom thanks to kind neighbors

Newborn kittens need to feed every two to three hours Cat Breeds

Newborn kittens are finally together and happy with their mom

The owner moved out and didn’t take the cat Ella with him, so she stayed alone. Kind neighbors had been feeding Ella and checking up on her and her newborn kittens. However, when the new mum failed to come home at the usual time neighbors called Blue Cross for help. They worried for the young kittens’ welfare.

A neighbor brought the youngsters to the charity animal hospital in central London. They immediately took them in and made sure they had the milk they urgently needed.

“We worried about the kittens because we didn’t know for how long they were starving from hunger,” said Amanda Marrington, Blue Cross Animal Welfare Officer. “It was a race against time to make sure they had everything they needed to survive. Kittens need regular meals and care, so it could have been a very different outcome, unfortunately.”

Amazingly, the following day Ella returned to the spot where she had left her brood to find they were missing. We believe she may have been off searching for food further away from home than usual.

“When we received the news that Ella was home, a volunteer collected the confused tabby and brought her to our animal hospital where her kittens were waiting,” Amanda said.

“The whole team was so happy to be able to reunite Ella with her kittens. They knew their mum straight away and wasted no time in begging her for a meal!

“While we are always able to hand feed kittens who need it, they will have a much better chance of growing up strong and healthy with their mother. She is an excellent mum.”

They named the kittens Peter, Logan, Clark, Bruce and Tony after superheroes. The whole feline family was given the all clear to be transferred to Blue Cross Southampton rehoming center following a health check, where they settled into a peaceful space for the kittens to grow before they were found loving homes.
