A mother cat and her four kittens had been frequenting a few backyards where university
students reside. It didn’t take long for the mother to be rescued as she was very hungry. By
now the kittens started to roam as they were becoming more independent and curious. A
second student reported the kittens and this new location was further up the street in an apartment building parking lot. The kittens spent their days sleeping under cars and would scramble when anyone came too close. There were cars pulling in and out of the lot all the time and
it was urgent to rescue them asap. One of our dedicated volunteers set up a humane trap –
then she camped out in her car to wait and it took all day to catch three of the kittens. The last
kitten had to be left for the night as it was midnight and there was no sign of her. The three
rescued little ones were kept safely in her bathroom over night but our volunteer had little sleep
and was back at the parking lot in the wee hours of the morning, The lot was quiet and it was
the perfect time to bring the baby into safely. Fifteen hours later and all four kittens were
headed to the sanctuary and onto a much better life.
Ramen and Rhubarb love to spend time playing with toys, chasing each other and wrestling.
They entertain themselves for hours with acrobatics and the Indy 500 through the house. At
first Rhubarb was more cautious of her new environment, but Ramen was ready to explore and
show his sister around, checking out each room and approaching new people for pets and
cuddles. Both are quite friendly and affectionate. They purr deeply when pet or given kitty
back massages and head rubs, and they love to crawl into bed with their people to sleep.
Ramen and Rhubarb are ready to be adopted into their forever home. One that will welcome
them into the family and keep them safely indoors.
