The day the plea for help came from our local animal shelter about a mother cat and babies, a volunteer went right over to the animal shelter as, in every rescue time is of the essence. One look at the little family and they were named “The Brady Bunch”. There was Carol, the mother with Greg, Marsha, Peter, Jan and Cindy.
What began as a routine rescue to save this Mom and her newborn kittens from being euthanized led to one of the kitten's fight for survival.
The momma cat, Carol, was so very thin and malnourished which prevented her from producing enough milk to feed all of the Brady kittens. The very determined foster parent stepped up to supplement their nutrition by bottle feeding all five kittens. All of the kittens became stronger and healthier, except for Jan, who grew weaker with no interest in food. The foster parent never gave up hope, taking Jan to the Emergency Room and veterinarian’s office multiple times to ensure she was doing everything she could to help Jan. Finally, after 4 days, little Jan began to improve.
As you can see in the video, Jan is one happy, healthy little girl. She already has her new family wrapped around her little paw. In fact, not only has Jan been adopted, her mom and siblings have all found a home too; except for Greg, but he will find his forever family very soon.
Because of your donations to New Beginnings Cat Rescue, we can continue to rescue kittens like Jan, who just need a compassionate foster parent, rescue friendly veterinarians, time to heal and your financial contribution. Thank you for your support.
Cindy, Jan, Marsha and Greg (Peter was adopted)
