“A friend reached out to me after she found a kitten in critical condition. Sadly, he didn’t make it, but I learned that his littermates were still out there. They had been living under the porch of someone’s house,” Emilie shared with Love Meow.
Without hesitation, Emilie headed over to the whereabouts, and immediately noticed two younglings huddled behind trees in the yard.
“She was frightened and ran back under the porch, but as soon as I offered her food she gave me a little meow, and I was able to scoop her up. I think at that moment, she knew she could trust me.”
The two were in rough shape and covered in fleas. Emilie brought them home, got them all cleaned up and treated, and gave them a comfortable place to nestle in.
The kittens were tuckered out on their new blankets, and fell fast asleep snuggled up to each other, with full bellies.
“Since they were hidden behind trees, I named the orange girl, Juniper, and the grey tortie girl, Willow.”
After a few days of TLC and lots of fattening up, Juniper, the scaredy kitty, turned into a full-blown chatterbox. With her newfound energy, she began to “roar” at her foster mom at feeding time, because, in her mind, food can never be served fast enough.
She became quite the attention-seeker and would run the gamut of meows from silent ones to loud screams.
The little chatterbox is thriving alongside her sister and other foster friends. Soon, they will be ready for adoption and to find a place of their own.
