I couldn’t resist that fractured fairy tale title…
Petite and beautiful, polydactyl momcat Cinder has done a fine job raising her six kittens. After the kittens were weaned and she had her operation to retire from producing anymore, she was adopted.
Her kittens won’t be at PAWS for very long, but I can’t resist showing them off.
This tale has a happy ending. Cinder was brought to PAWS quite pregnant. A kind volunteer took her home and fostered the cat family until the kittens were old enough to enter PAWS, which is a no-kill shelter. They had loving care, good food, vet visits, and lots of socialization.
I wish this story was the norm and not the fairy tale. In the USA every year millions of homeless cats and kittens are euthanized or end up in shelters.
Fortunately, these six kittens will all be spayed or neutered so that they will not add to the problem. The two gray kittens have already been adopted and I’m sure the others will be soon.
