Michigan Flooding Event Results in Huge Cat Adoption

A little while ago, we shared a story about the brilliant efforts of the Cedar Rapids Animal Shelter after major flooding put animals in their town at risk. Today, those very animals are being put up for adoption.

You can get your cute overload right here today — serving up a video of a litter of Cedar Rapids flood victim kittens and their ma who are up for adoption. The very pregnant mother was extricated from the mud during the flood cleanup, and afterward gave birth to seven kittens. An eighth joined the litter when it was found, mired in mud and abandoned by its mother. The rescued mother welcomed the orphan into her brood.
