Over the weekend Alexander Dominguez and his girlfriend decided to go visit their friends in a rural area. As the car moved through a wooded area they were surprised to first see two cats meowing.
“This summer, while visiting friends in another town, we decided to go on a hike. As we drive through the woods seeking for ways near the road, my friend exclaims, ‘KITTY!’
“There was a cat back there!” Please do a U-turn!”
“Then another cat arrives out of nowhere from the woods, followed by more cats!”
“We pull over to a gravel pull-off and see a cat sitting on the side of the road. She comes up behind us and starts mewing and brushing herself on our legs.”
They soon discovered that two cat mums and nine kittens had been left to fend for themselves in the woods! The kittens got one glimpse at the pair and bolted, followed by the two mothers and their human helpers!
“Because their children were terrified, we had to walk into the woods to find them.” We were able to locate the kittens with the help of the moms.”
“We knew we had to help since my friends and I are all cat lovers.” “When we collected them all, we brought them back with us, fed them, washed them, and called them to the shelters.”
“We asked everyone we knew if they wanted a cat because none of them could accept them for another week or two.”
“Eventually, my partner found a pair of friends who were prepared to take them in, so I brought them back to my apartment until I could transport them six hours to their new home.”
“I was making every effort not to connect with anyone.” I couldn’t say no as a cat lover whose 18-year-old family cat had just passed away a few months prior.”
“I began to like the two young runts that needed a bit more TLC.”
“I begged my boyfriend (who has a little cat allergy) to let us keep them, and he consented.” So now I’m a very happy cat mom to Luce and Bub, my two spoiled boys (and, despite his objections, my boyfriend is now a loving cat dad).”
