A pair of kittens turned up in a family’s yard and found help in time for the cold winter.
A kind-hearted woman from Montreal, Canada spotted a pair of kittens outside her home with no mother in sight.
She looked around for other kittens but couldn’t find any. Hoping that the mother would come back for her babies, she waited that afternoon while keeping an eye on the two kittens.
When night fell and the two little ones were still unclaimed and unattended, the friendly lady decided to step in to help.
She put together a makeshift shelter and covered it with a blanket. She gave the kittens some water and food, which she quickly devoured. Still wishing for her mother to return, she tried again that evening.
The next morning the lady woke up to find that the two bundles of fur had huddled on the blanket. There was still no sign of the mother cat and no one in the neighborhood came forward for her. It was clear that the kittens had been left behind.
The homeowner picked them up and brought them inside. She asked her local rescue, Chatons Orphelins Montréal, for help.
“The lady secured the kittens, fed them and kept them warm before we took them into our care,” said Celine Crom of Chatons Orphelins Montréal Love Meow.
The cat brothers they called Sirius and Celestin were so excited to be loved and cared for. They switched on their purr motors at the same time as they were petted.
After a trip to the vet, the kittens embarked on a new journey as house cats with a loving foster family. “The kittens were a bit shy at first, but quickly became curious and wanted to play,” added Celine.
“You completed the weaning process with the help of our volunteers Manon and Anais.”
At six weeks old, the kittens would not be able to defend themselves against the elements of nature, especially the harsh Canadian winter. Thanks to the timely rescue, they will never have to endure this.
The two brothers have been inseparable since entering their new home. “They do everything together and never let their eyes off each other. They are playful and love other cats.”
The kittens are like two peas in a pod and will seek each other out when they are not around.
“In the morning they purr in bed with their humans and collapse as a duo. They long for attention and hugs and immediately start purring when they are touched.”
The nap is never alone for the two of them. They are often seen intertwined in the scratching post or on top of each other in their person’s comfortable bed. “There’s never a moment they’re apart. They share an incredible bond.”
Not only do they look alike, but they also share similar personalities. Celestin is the leader of the two and the boss when it comes to food and toys. Sirius always lets him his way and quietly follows in his footsteps.
Salvation knows how close they are and hopes to provide a home for them together. “The kittens are thriving and ready to find a loving family who will cherish both of them forever,” shared Celine Love Meow.
The cute panther kittens have really bloomed in the last few weeks. They love their VIP life as pampered house cats and are ready for their new chapter in life.
