Arrival Story: Mittens is the mother of the five kittens, it's unclear exactly how old she is or how long she's been on the streets but neighbors have claimed to have seen her around for at least three or four years. My guess is that she was abandoned, she's far too friendly and sweet to have been born a feral cat. Mittens started coming around while we were in the process of trying to TNR (trap, neuter, return) the ferals and strays in our area. We were going to trap and have her fixed along with the others but noticed she looked like she was nursing...and sure enough she was! With the help of a good friend of ours we were able to get Mittens to lead us to her kittens, who were about two weeks old at the time, and we took the entire family in. Mitten's kittens are going to be old enough to spay/neuter in October and Mittens is getting spayed along with them. The kittens are available for adoption after that, but Mittens has found her forever home with us.
