Fortunately, a kitty living in a sewer pipe had the confidence to approach a family, giving her offspring a shot at survival.
Jamie Myers, a native of Spokane, Washington, was camping with his family early in the summer when they all of a sudden noticed something odd.
His 10-year-old daughter spotted a little cat in the distance that was ambling directly through the pipe and beneath the highway.
Jamie’s family, who are foster volunteers and animal enthusiasts, made the decision to launch a search for the stray kitten right once.
“To find this mysterious kitty who was in the wrong area, we leapt out of the RV and hurried back to the road we entered on. We located a drainage pipe beneath the road a few hundred meters back, and we noticed two little eyes staring at us there.
Obviously the pipe was not the right place for an abandoned animal to take refuge, and they knew they had to help the feline. Jamie and her daughter tried to convince her with some food and she quickly accepted and devoured the food within minutes.
“It could well be the easiest rescue we’ve ever done. We left the small can of food outside and she did not hesitate to eat. She came right out and showed us how hungry and beautiful and deathly thin she was.”
Shortly after the animal came out of the pipe, the family was able to discover that through its bones and flaccid skin it was harboring a miracle in its belly.
The adorable creature chose to accompany the family around the campsite out of kindness for them; she felt extremely appreciative and wanted to be by her side.
She consented to our picking her up and transporting her to our RV, where she spent the weekend. She didn’t think twice about joining us in bed or on the sofa, and she appeared genuinely thankful to have been saved.
It was very likely that the kitten had been abandoned in the drain, because no one claimed her, and perhaps she had been living there for a long time. Fortunately, all that was about to change, as Jamie’s family picked her up from camp and made the decision to bring her home.
Over the next few days, the cat, named Caki, became incredibly accustomed to her new foster home and was making rapid progress. Caki stayed next to Jamie’s daughter and filled her with many hugs; she now she no longer had to worry about anything, just be happy.
“A little time after we took her home, she revealed her secret to us and bestowed upon us with six other infants. Helping her raise her children in a secure, adoring, and joyful environment has brought us such delight.”
Caki’s new family assisted her in bottle-feeding her children throughout the day because she had a limited milk supply.
