Some people have such a large heart that it’s incredible it doesn’t burst. Megan Sorbara is that sort of person. She is the president of the Naples Cat Alliance, where she and the other members of the organization help stray and abandoned cats find loving homes. On a sweltering day, Sorbara was on her way to fetch ice cream when she received a call regarding three kittens. She, of course, answered right away.
Sorbara sensed something was wrong as the three little kittens cuddled together. That was the case. Despite being snuggled between her tabby brothers, the white cat was shaking and shivering.
Sorbara et al. opted to take turns feeding the infants by bottle every two hours after transplanting the young felines to their new home. They were extremely little and inexperienced! Naturally, locating their mother became a top concern.
The crew returned to the babies’ location, but no matter how hard they tried, mama cat was too cunning to be apprehended.
The tabbies continued to cuddle up to their little sister, keeping her warm and cozy. Praline and Pistachio (the tabbies) and Coconut were the names given to the three by Sorbara (the white kitten). Even though little sister Coconut was battling to survive, everyone adored the small kittens.
Coconut was immediately taken to Sorbara’s dog, Bitsy, who snuggled with her and enticed her to play. Bitsy seems to be aware that the kitten need stretching, climbing, and movement. She was just what the doctor had prescribed!
In the meantime, the search for the kittens’ mother continued. They were finally successful one night, and the tiny ones were reunited with their mother.
“It’s finally happened: Coconut, Pistachio, and Praline have reunited with their mother Vanilla Bean,” Sorbara remarked. All of the missed sleep and worry over Coconut’s health were worth it for that lovely moment.
The kittens developed quickly under Vanilla Bean’s care. Sorbara quickly realized that the kittens were ready to find “furever” homes.
