Kittens kept each other going strong as they purred their way to a chance at a better life.
Caroline Grace, the founder of Baby Kitten Rescue (located in Los Angeles), received a call about a pair of small tabbies in need of immediate assistance around a month back.
When a young wild cat was taken into an emergency vet facility, it was found to be pregnant and suffering from a serious infection. She gave birth to a litter of four children, but only two of them made it to adulthood. Because of the cat’s poor condition and the necessity for medical treatment, she was unable to care for her kittens while they were alive.
“The vet assessed that the mother would be unable to breastfeed in her current condition,” Caroline says. “We picked up the kittens from the vet facility that night and transported them to our house, where they were placed in an incubator.”
Chandler and Monica, two siblings who came in poor health—dehydrated, chilly, and in in need of medical attention—were immediately put to work. They were able to keep each other going during the next several days in critical care. Despite the fact that they were just the size of a palm, they shown incredible courage and determination.
After five days, the kittens regained strength and appetite, and were transferred to another foster volunteer, Pei Chiu, to continue their care. Chandler and Monica were like two peas in a pod for the whole time they were together.
Pei described her initial impression of the kittens as follows: “These babies have lungs.” “Within the first hour of being with them, I could tell they had a lot of personality and that I was in for a very outspoken and talkative duet.”
It was the first night in their new home when the twins activated their purr motors. They immediately rolled onto their backs for belly rubs while they extended their mini claws in the air, completely unaware of what they were doing.
“I’ve never seen a pair of shoes that were so similar to each other. Since the beginning of time, Chandler has grown somewhat larger, but they have remained nearly same up until now “Pei shared his thoughts.
“They enjoy talking and telling you their opinions, wants, and needs in full detail – and that is how I’ve always been able to tell them apart – Chandler’s meow is a little lower, and Monica’s meow is a little higher.” “They both love to talk and tell you their opinions, wants, and needs in full detail.”
The kittens have accomplished a number of significant milestones together, including opening their eyes to peer out into the world for the first time and wriggling about in their nest as they learned to walk.
“Their desire to life has always been strong, and they have never been disheartened since they knew they were in good hands with us. It was clear from the beginning that they trusted and loved each other, as shown by the biggest purrs I’d ever heard a neonate make, belly ups, and air biscuits all day long “Pei was willing to share.
Tuco, the resident cat, who came to Pei as a foster and has been there ever since, often comes to lend a paw.
It seems as though he is giving the kittens the same affection that he experienced when he was rescued by staying by their side and watching them slumber. “He passionately adores all of the foster babies and also instructs them on all of the kitty-related subjects.”
Despite their differences, the two siblings have a wonderful relationship, and their resolve to succeed as a family has been nothing short of extraordinary.
It seems that the kittens are developing at a rapid pace. Their enthusiasm for one another is contagious, and their appetites are rising.
Down their spare time, when they are not wrestling or devouring food to their hearts’ delight, they are experimenting with new toys or settling in for a lengthy snooze with no worries in the world.
“They’ve just recently begun to get interested in toys! Monica enjoys taking them all and placing them in a place designated as “hers.” She gives out the sweetest little growl while mentally playing a game with herself, all the while Chandler is passed out on the floor nearby.”
Their cat mother is recovering, and the lady who discovered her is taking good care of her.
“The lady promised to take care of her and provide the medications that the veterinarian had recommended. In addition, the veterinarian at the emergency hospital offered to neuter Mama Cat for free once she had recovered completely “Caroline expressed her thoughts.
Despite everyone’s expectations for their growth and development, the twin kittens have outperformed them and are now flourishing as a pair.
‘They have such large personalities, and they have so much love to offer, that they will surely want a lot of space in their eventual permanent home in order to become the best cats they can be.’
