A stray cat and kitten were brought in earlier this year by Nashville Cat Rescue, a completely non-profit organization in Nashville, Tennessee.
A ginger cat approximately a year old encircled her one and only kid with her paws in an effort to shield her from the outside world. Nisa Konuma, a field volunteer, rushed to take the young family home since they needed a somewhere to stay.
Although mother cat Bailey was reserved around people, she was appreciative of having a warm bed to cuddle the kitten in and a roof over her head. A newborn named Whiskey, who had no siblings, clung to his mother’s breast and drank as much milk as he pleased.
Gradually, the charming kitty loosened up a little and relaxed, realizing that the family of guardians only wishes her well.
After a few days, the kitten’s eyes cleared up and opened wide. He became more energetic and began to use his small legs. Under the supervision of Bailey’s mother, he climbed out of the nest and hobbled towards adventure.
Around the same time, rescuers adopted three orphaned kittens whose future was hanging in the balance. They were in dire need of caregivers, so Nysa brought all three of them home in the hope that Bailey wouldn’t mind.
And so it happened – the mother cat accepted stepchildren and began to take care of them as if they were her own. Still not fully accustomed to the new conditions, she tried to feed all the kids. After a couple of days, it became clear that Bailey needed help.
Nisa started giving the abandoned kittens bottle feedings every hour to replace the mother cat’s milk supply. As a result, Bailey was free to concentrate on the nourishment that her native kitten needed to grow and thrive.
The four young fluffies were taken care of by them as they collaborated closely. Whiskey was happy to get the chance to play with his peers and welcomed the newcomers with good humor.
Bailey’s mother spent more and more time alone, taking pleasure in the cuddles of her guardians as the kittens became bigger and more active.
She is really a darling, likes to be pampered, and receives attention so politely, according to Nysa.
Bailey taught the kittens cat skills at night when everyone was asleep. She imparted all of her practical knowledge to the children, preparing them for the period of maturation.
When the youngsters were old enough to be adopted, decent folks took swift possession of them. They departed one by one for their permanent residences. Bailey declared parenting to be over and now hoped that perhaps one day the people who owned her dreams would come for her.
Bailey enjoyed playing with neighborhood cats and “helping” her foster mother around the home. She was plainly relieved to leave the streets and enter such protection, and she became more and more confident in people every day.
She enjoys having her tummy stroked and gives her forehead a professional touch. Animal rights advocates claim that after getting past her initial shyness and recognizing that the human is her buddy, she becomes a joyful partner and is not afraid to play about like a kitten.
“Retired mother cats are some of the best pets in the world. Having stopped feeding the kittens and having undergone the sterilization procedure, they decide that their time has come, and shamelessly pour out all their love on the person, as if becoming again little tender girls.
Every day, Bailey hopes that the perfect family will find her and take her home. She is a real cutie, to whom you just need to show a little patience and understanding.
“She requires owners who are willing to wait till she gets over a very significant shyness. But as soon as she achieves this, she will exhibit childlike playfulness.
Mommy should blossom now!
