Kitten Season...Last week, Oakland Animal Services called us with a request to take 3 (related) moms and their 11 babies.We took them in... and that number soon became 14 as we took in another 3 tiny bottlefeeders. Luckily, "Olga" took the orphans in willingly. The recently assembled family is seen above.
The other mothers, "Harriet" and "Frederika" share nursing duties here... one on each side, with 11 babies in the middle!
and here's another shot of the feeding frenzy.
"Harriet" and "Frederika" are now in foster with 2 loving foster families (Thank you J.R. & J.L. for sharing your homes!)... "Olga" and her brood await their turn, but will soon be with an East Bay SPCA foster family who will take great care of them until they are ready for adoption.
If you're interested in helping out with families like the ones above, or with kittens who aren't fortunate enough to come in with their mothers, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Help us save lives, one litter at a time!
