This adorable litter and their mom struggle to find their lifelong family.
Mel is a pretty cat who was found last February outside the door of a pharmacy in a town in Galicia, Spain. The people who came to her rescue quickly understood the reason for her abandonment: she was pregnant with five kittens when she was found.
An abandonment that hurts the heart
Her former owners had left her in her basket with a bag beside her containing her things. The little cat was just over one year old and gave birth to her kittens in March.
The kittens were booked very quickly by two foster families, which should have been good news. But these two families were a little too eager to wait for their future little feline.
The shelter that welcomes the cat and her kittens has indicated that they do not separate the kittens from their mother for 10 weeks. This is the time it takes for kittens to eat on their own and be perfectly independent in life.
But the two families who had reserved the kittens did not have the patience to wait until they were weaned. These families have retracted and the kittens and their mother Mel are once again available for adoption. 10 weeks have gone by so quickly.
We hope that they will quickly find their family for life!
