This is an amazing story of love lost and then found. Although it makes me wonder just how many helpless little creatures out there aren’t as lucky as these five adorable kittens…
So, a woman named Maria heard some kittens crying and became worried when their cries continued for more than an hour. She went to check on them and found five little kittens abandoned in a cardboard box on an empty plot of land — in very poor shape and begging for food and water.
Maria took them home and has been caring for them. As you will see in the images below, the kittens are doing much better now. Her partner Alex said:
I don’t know why the kittens ended up in a box, but, by the look of them, they were probably born on the street. A human surely put them there. They were dirty, very skinny and full of fleas. We showed them to the vet, who cleaned and fed them. Several vets told us that it’s rare that orphaned kittens could survive, at such a young age, without their mother. The test was whether or not they could reach the age of two months. We took it upon ourselves to raise them the best we could, with the hope that we could find them permanent homes.
The kittens are doing just fine and have even found a new friend in the couple’s boxer-lab mix dog. Enjoy the images that follow.
