A group of six adorable kittens has been presented with a chance to live a happier life, and the love they show for each other knows no bounds.
In Philadelphia, a shelter clinic received six adorable kittens that required constant attention. Unfortunately, their mother abandoned them when they were only 10 days old. Luckily, a kind volunteer stepped in and hand-fed the kittens until they reached three weeks of age. Afterward, they were transferred to the Animal Welfare League of Arlington (AWLA) in Virginia for continued foster care. While the mother cat was too sick to care for her babies, she received medical treatment and was spayed, which improved her health tremendously.
Penny Richards, a seasoned foster parent at AWLA, set up a cozy nursery for the six kittens. However, because they were all suckling on each other, it had the potential to harm their tissues. To address this issue, Penny spent a week and a half establishing a proper feeding routine and providing each kitten with its own comfortable pen, soft blankets, and stuffed animal surrogate. Thanks to her efforts, the kittens were able to break their habit of nursing on each other.
The young cats were pros at bottle-feeding, but Maiori, who had mostly white fur with calico spots, decided it was time to move on to bigger and better things – solid food. Her sister Atrani followed suit not long after, while the other kittens took their time and continued with the bottle for a bit longer before making the switch to solids.
When the kittens began to become more active, they were moved to a larger playpen to accommodate their playful antics. Whenever their caretaker entered the room, the six of them would eagerly jump onto her lap and purr in perfect harmony. The litter of cats also loves snuggling together in a cozy cuddle-puddle, intertwining their little legs.
The six little creatures have transformed into bundles of untamed vitality, frolicking around the house and causing all sorts of mayhem. Penny, who shared this story with Love Meow, revealed that they are always in a state of play, running after one another and engaging in playful wrestling matches. Whenever they are exhausted, it’s not uncommon to find all six of them snuggled up close together on Penny’s lap.
The feline babies have a strong affection towards their owners, however, their fondness for one another surpasses that. They spend most of their time engaging in playful activities either in pairs or as a collective group, cuddling closely with one another.
Penny shared that Limoncello (a tuxedo cat) and Maiori are fond of playing soccer with their toy balls. Meanwhile, Atrani and Amaretto (a cow kitty) have distinct personalities and never fail to greet her and ask for food. Penny also revealed that Lambrusco (a cream-colored cat) is quite attached to her as he often sits on her lap or stays beside her on the couch.
Amalfi, a calico kitten with a tabby pattern, is quite the little hunter. She loves to sneak up on her siblings and pounce on their tails. Despite her mischievous behavior, she’s a very low-key kitty who can easily go unnoticed. She just loves being held and petted, and will reward you with lots of purrs. When she’s feeling playful, she loves spending time with her littermates and having a good time.
When you call out Atrani’s name, she will rush towards you with her white streaked head. This cute calico kitty always craves attention and loves to snuggle in your lap. She has a habit of reaching out to you and climbing on to you for a cuddle session. Her little paws will touch your face while you pet her, and her purr is so loud that it can never be ignored.
The kittens are always seeking attention and affection, seizing any opportunity they get. They enjoy lounging on a comfortable lap until they doze off to the sound of their caretakers’ comforting voice. Their priority is ensuring that no one feels lonely and everyone has a companion to snuggle with.
The affection shared between these adorable kittens is beyond measure. They’ve discovered an unparalleled sense of solace in each other’s company, one that they can rely on for a lifetime of snuggles and companionship.
