Kitten found alone in the garden, so happy when cat picks him up and raises him as her own

A kitten found all alone in a garden bed now has a cute family of cats to cuddle and love.

The crazy cats

In early December, Tara, founder of The Mad Catters (a cat rescue in Perth, Australia), was contacted about a ginger kitten in need of rescue. The little newborn was about 4-5 days old and was crying in a garden bed with no mother in sight.

They looked around for other kittens but couldn’t find any. While they tried to find the mother, the hungry little kitten was kept warm and taken care of with Tara.

“He weighed 173 grams and immediately sucked his formula down like a pro,” said Tara.

The kitten named Cobain woke up quickly with good food and a warm, cozy nest. The small bundle of fur was fed and cared for around the clock. He had an insatiable appetite and an amazing will to live.

“He liked to yell at me to eat every two hours on time,” added Tara.

Cobain refused to be alone and insisted on being with his caretaker at all times. He would cry until he was caught or snuggled tightly in a purrito.

Tara knew that the kitten could really benefit from a mother and feline siblings and began a search for a replacement cat mother.

At that time, a white and gray cat named Cinque was taken to a shelter when she was pregnant. They couldn’t find a microchip and no one came forward to claim them.

Two days later, she gave birth to a litter of five kittens in a safe, natural setting.

Impound Feline Rescue, a local rescue operation, took them into their care so that the cute mother cat could have a comfortable home to raise their babies and a loving foster family for their needs.

When the rescue found out about Cobain, the little singleton, they did not hesitate to help. They brought the new baby to Mama Cinque and hoped that she would accept him.

“Since it wasn’t too much older than Cinque’s babies, there was hope that Cinque could accept that little ginger as an extra mouth to feed,” Impound told Feline Rescue Love Meow.

“To everyone’s delight, little Cobain was quickly accepted into the gray and white gang, and so the litter of five became a litter of six.”

The cat took him as her own and showered him with the maternal love he badly needed. That night, little Cobain was safely and comfortably hidden among his new family.

“Cinque is such a fond mother cat and was brought to him right away. He will now have siblings and a mother from whom he can learn important behavioral and social skills, as well as the best possible nutrition for growing kittens,” added Tara.

The ginger boy blooms with the abundance of care from his new mother and feline siblings to wrestle and cuddle with.

Cobain is hardly bigger than its new siblings. They like to cuddle in a pile and the younger ones like to use their big brother as a pillow.

“It’s almost always better to have kittens fed and raised by a cat than to be hand-raised when possible,” the rescue said. “We are thrilled that the introduction of Cobain in Cinque went well.”

The sweet ginger no longer needs to cry or cuddle for attention as he now has a large family to lean on.
