While a lot of people are currently struggling to take care of themselves, let alone take care of their pets as people are losing jobs due to the coronavirus pandemic, some just can’t turn away from an animal in need.

Shea Prior spotted a stray cat hanging around in her yard a couple of months back and was pleasantly surprised after she finally got the cat to trust her enough to accept food from her. Prior realized the cat was producing milk and had kittens somewhere close by.

Shea Prior spotted this adorable cat wandering around her yard a couple of months ago. It took some time to convince the cat she meant no harm and for her to get close enough that Prior could feed her. Little did she know then, she was aiding a mama cat, but she noticed the cat was producing milk a couple of days into their new feeding routine.

“I was petting her and went to pick her up and that’s when I realized she had milk in and had been nursing some babies,” said Prior. She was excited about her realization and wanted to help out with the kittens, so she figured she’d just ask the cat to show her family to her.

“I started telling her to show me to her babies, and that I bet her babies were so pretty.” It seems that her words were the reassurance the mama cat needed as she led Prior to her babies the next day.

“She came running up to me and rubbed on my leg while making her little croaking noise she does,” Prior said. “She led me over to my shed and I looked and saw a couple little fluffballs staring back at me. She flopped over on her side and started calling to them to come out and see me.”

The kittens were too scared to come to meet her at first, but after some reassurance by their mommy, they came out of their hiding. “One of the little gray ones was super brave and came up to me with his little pointy tail held up high in the air and let me pet him immediately,” Prior said. “Eventually, after about 10 to 15 minutes, they had all come up to me and let me hold them and pet them.”

She knew immediately she wanted to help the adorable family and took them all in. “I will be adopting mama cat to live with me and my other two sweet girlies! All the babies have found homes and will be adopted as soon as mama is ok with it. But for now, everyone is doing great,” she said and added that she started a crowd-funding page to help take care of the cat family.
