Road Cat enters Service immediately so she and her kittens can begin new lives

A tabby cat was found in a rough situation. A kind person rushed to rescue them and also saved their kittens.

Little Wanderers NYC was contacted about a stray cat roaming a neighborhood in Bronx, New York. The cat was pregnant and in dire need of rescue.

She was in a very bad situation and had to be taken to a safe place as soon as possible. When Jen, a Little Wanderers volunteer, learned of her plight, dropped everything and ran to fetch the cat.

When Jen found the pregnant stray, the friendly tabby walked straight up to her as if to say she was ready to leave the street life behind.

Jen put the carrier on the floor and opened a can of cat food for the hungry tabby. The cute kitten went straight to eat and peeled it off.

She was so happy with the kind gesture that she rubbed her face over the porter's entrance before going inside.

That day marked the end of the stray life for the deserved cat and the beginning of something wonderful for them and their babies. "Her name is free, and she is actually free now – free from fear, free from hunger and free from evil people," Little Wanderers told NYC.

Rescue immediately sought a volunteer caregiver for the mother-to-be so she could comfortably raise her kittens in a safe home.

Shortly thereafter, Kaitlyn, a volunteer, stepped forward to help. She greeted Mama Free in her lovely accommodation and the tabby relaxed quickly.

Free (aka Miss Freeda) was so comfortable in a home environment. She lay down on the couch, rolled onto her back, and fell asleep immediately.

"She (was) so incredibly cute and so incredibly pregnant! She is just a kitten herself, less than a year old," wrote Kaitlyn.

"She is so loving and trusting, despite some really tough encounters with people in her days as a street cat."

A few weeks later, Free gave birth to a large litter of kittens. Five of the seven babies survived and began to thrive.

Free did her best to care for her discerning little newborn and was so glad to have caring people to help her along the way.

"Mama Free adapts and learns but is already great at her job," said Kaitlyn.

The sweet tabby stays with her kittens around the clock, caring for, cleaning and loving them. She will never have to worry about a day without food or shelter again.

Little Wanderers NYC, like Jen, is looking for more volunteer caregivers and first animal rescuers. "We need more people who can save a cat that is in a dangerous situation and save the animal."

The five kittens were named for symbols of good luck – Jade, Wishbone, Clover, Acorn, and Ladybug.

Yesterday the kittens turned two weeks old. Their eyes are wide open and their ears unfold as their hearing continues to develop.

The cute bundles of fur grow by leaps and bounds with their devoted mother taking care of all of their needs.

"In a couple of weeks she will be fixed and her babies will be weaned and she can have happy, stress-free lives in her forever home," added Kaitlyn.
