On a sunny Saturday morning, we recued a cat that we found crying for help on a rooftop next door to our cat sanctuary.
24 hours later, we realized she was a nursing mama and that she had developed mastitis so we started searching for her litter all over the place. Those babies were nowhere to be found.
We couldn’t hear or see anything so after a couple of hours we just gave up all hope of finding them alive.
But we kept thinking… what if they were alive? How could they make it on their own without their nursing mother? It was a scary thought but there was nothing we could do to help them.
On Friday late afternoon, we were outside in the shelter’s courtyard when we started hearing some desperate meows… it was very loud and clear!
No doubt there were small kittens crying for help out there somewhere but could they be Chloe’s?
We immediately went to our rooftop and searched all over again but nothing there!
We went out and started walking toward the meowing… It was coming from a rooftop nearby (about 100mts away from us).
Finally, around 9pm, we contacted the owners of the house and they allowed us to check their rooftop… and there they were!
Two teeny-tiny skinny fur babies all dirty and covered in pigeon’s poop.
They said they could keep one of them so we brought the other one in, a little girl that looks just like her mama.
Finding both kittens alive after 6 days without their mother was a quite a miracle!
We decided to call our little miracle, Mimi 🙂
We took Mimi to Chloe’s room right away to see her reaction but she rejected her baby.
Anyway, even if she hadn’t they could no longer be together, Chloe’s mastitis is highly risky for Mimi so at this point they cannot be reunited.
Mimi’s was taken to Cat Room 1 where she got a warm bath to get rid of the fleas and pigeon poop.
She’s getting lots of TLC! and she’s already eating on her own.
This lil’ girl has a voracious apettite for dry food, tuna … and human fingers too!
