A mother always knows what’s best for her children, and the same is true for animals.
Mama Ally, a stray cat, recently decided she’d had enough of the streets and relocated her family to a secure location.
The mother cat and her two fluffy white kittens stood on the threshold of a North Carolina family’s house, anxiously waiting to be recognized through the glass.
When the homeowner saw Mama Ally with her months-old kittens, she called Sparkle Cat Rescue for help. The rescue stepped in to trap the little family and bring them to safety. But it didn’t take long for them to realize that Mama Ally had one more surprise in store — she was pregnant.
Mama Ally was referred to the rescue by their partner, Murphy’s Law Animal Rescue, and its founder, Sarah Kelly. Kelly agreed right away to locate a nice place for the cat to spend her final trimester.
When Mama Ally arrived, she made a point of thanking her new humans.
“The second she was taken home, she was immediately demanding attention from her foster, Monica,” Kelly told The Dodo. “She likes to cuddle up on her lap, on her arm, or anywhere she can get the closest snuggle!” If she has left the house, she will spend the day napping on her shoes or apparel that smells like her. She enjoys being among people and receiving attention.”
Weeks went by, and Mama Ally once again demonstrated why she is Mother of the Year.
“She has the sweetest heart,” Kelly said. “To have cared for her older kittens so long and so well, outside as a stray — seeking out help — she has proven what a heart of gold she has! She gave birth to her five babies like an absolute rockstar and has taken to adoringly caring for them like the best mama in the world.”
