Five of the kittens were found in a hoarder house (hoarder of things, not cats). We've shared a video on our Facebook page of the kittens being rescued. You can watch it here.
The 6th kitten's Mom, Matilda was brought to Great Plains SPCA by a kind lady. Matilda was very pregnant. Upon further examination, they realized Matilda had a baby stuck in the birth canal. Matilda was rushed to surgery for a c-section. At first they thought there were no survivors out of the litter of four, but miraculously one of the kittens, Clover made it! While Matilda recovered in ICU, Clover was taken care of by one the shelter's caring staff members. Eventually, Clover was reunited with his mom.
And what a great mom, Matilda was! Not only did she take immaculate care of Clover, she also took care of the 5 hoarder babies as her own a few weeks later.
Matilda did such a great job, she is now at the shelter were she can now find a home of her own. We know she will find someone to love her just like she loved her babies!
