Shea A Prior made the decision to feed a stray cat she saw hanging out in her backyard a few months ago. This stray was first timid, but she eventually warmed to the dish. Prior was happy that the adorable cat had at last come to rely on her and eat from her.
While feeding the cat, Prior realized the cat was producing milk – which meant she was nursing her babies. “I was petting her and went to pick her up and that’s when I realized she had milk in and had been nursing some babies,” Prior told The Dodo.
Prior wanted to help the family, but she didn’t know where they were. She guessed that the mama hid her babies somewhere nearby. “I started telling her to show me to her babies, and that I bet her babies were so pretty,” Prior said.
Amazingly, the mother cat seemed to comprehend what Prior had stated, so the next day, the cat took Prior to see her kittens. The mother was overjoyed to introduce Prior to her five adorable kittens. The cat obviously trusted Prior and knew that she would do her best to protect and
“She came running up to me and rubbed on my leg while making her little croaking noise she does,” Prior said. “She led me over to my shed and I looked and saw a couple little fluffballs staring back at me. She flopped over on her side and started calling to them to come out and see me.”
The kittens were first too terrified to emerge from hiding, but after some encouragement from their mother, they eventually had the courage to do so and greet Prior.
“One of the little gray ones was super brave and came up to me with his little pointy tail held up high in the air and let me pet him immediately,” Prior said. “Eventually, after about 10 to 15 minutes, they had all come up to me and let me hold them and pet them.”
Prior invited the cute family into her home as soon as she saw them because she felt she had to assist them. “I’m going to adopt mom cat so she can live with me and my other two adorable girls! As soon as mom is okay with it, all of the babies will be adopted. However, everyone is doing well right now, she said.
