Meet Emerald and her babies, Mini Me, Dot, Khloe, and Courtney:
This is a wonderful rescue story, which will make you smile....read the entire story below Dot's update.. During the time that this mother and her babies were rescued, in the last several weeks, three of the four siblings have been adopted and now it is Dot"s turn!
Meet Dot: UPDATE 8/7 from Dot's foster mom:
Dot is the SWEETEST little kitty you will ever meet! She is always asking for pets and cuddles. She loves to sleep with her humans while they are working, run from person to person on the couch, and get lots and lots of pets from anyone that will give them to her. She also loooooves to play!! She is the definition of a people cat, and would love a home with people happy to give her lots and lots of love! Dot does often get a little anxious at the adoption center for photo ops or greets, so while she may seem timid when you first meet her, she will quickly warm up to you if you choose to take her home!!
If you are considering adopting Dot and do not already have another animal at home, please consider adopting another kitten, teen or adult as well. Kittens are very cat oriented and can be very lonely without a companion when you are not home. This way, they will have another kitty to play and cuddle up with when you are not with them, and, as an added bonus, they will double your pleasure and fun as well!
To meet Dot, please submit a cat adoption application online at arwob.org. We will contact applicants at the end of June/early July. We are looking for LOCAL SAN DIEGAN ADOPTERS ONLY.
Meet sweet Emerald!
We took Emerald to the vet to have her spayed and it turned out the girl was not pregnant; she had already had her babies! Frantically, we contacted the good sam asking if they knew about it or knew where she could have had the babies. No information, they started to help looking around the neighbors' properties. The ARWOB founder went to this neighborhood and started to talk to people around the area asking if they knew the cat or had heard kittens crying for their mama..,,, nothing. We ended up taking mom back to see if she could go find her babies and hopefully we could observe and follow her, but she didn't go anywhere for a couple of hours. Worried for her safety, we couldn't leave her behind and were devasted about the outcome for the babies.....wherever they may be.
Almost 48hrs later, we received a late night call from the good sam; her neighbor heard kittens and she walked over and crawled under the home to find the litter of babies. How dI'd we know they were hers? They were probably 2-3 days old with their umbilical cords, and almost identical to sweet Emerald. We reunited the family of 5 kitts and momma Emerald immediately took over for their care. Sadly, one little baby didn't make it the first 24hrs, but the rest of the littles did amazing. Emerald was extraordinary and we were over the moon happy for the outcome!
Emerald is done nursing her babies and her babies were ready to go home in mid July. Emerald is a social love bug, is great with her kittens and we think she will be ok with cats, probably ok with dogs but unsure about both so we are happy tod o a foster to adopt trial for Emerald to the right home if they have other pets, otherwise perhaps she can be adopted with one of her babies or as an only girl. The kittens must be adopted into a home with other cats or with a sibling.
