A cat and her kittens rescued from a milk crate. Now they are living the new life they dreamed of.

About a week ago, Little Stray New York received a rescue call for a cat and her three kittens who were living in their backyard. They were being kept in a milk crate in the backyard of a Bronx resident who didn’t know what to do with them.
Volunteers from Little Wanderers NYC were on their feet as soon as they were called.
Little Wanderers NYC volunteers rose to the call, stopped everything they were doing, and went out to meet the cat’s family.

Upon arriving at their destination, they found two kittens in need of medical attention.
We struggled to save them, but sadly, the two kittens did not survive.” The survival rate for kittens born outdoors is about 25 percent.” The mother, Flora, and her tiger cat, Dandelion, were able to turn things around with a timely rescue.

Flora was treated for a cold and quickly regained her appetite. She was very patient at the veterinary clinic, as if she knew the staff was trying to help her. She looked around curiously, checking out every nook and cranny.
The adorable mother cat began to relax, realizing that she no longer had to roam the streets and worry about food and shelter.

Meanwhile, Little Wanderers New York, an all-volunteer rescue organization, reached out to the community to place this mother and daughter in foster care.
Soon a kind family offered to help. They opened their hearts and homes to the mother and daughter. Flora and Dandelion really grew up shortly after their arrival.
‘Flora and her daughter Dandelion are safe and happy in their new foster home. Dandelion is the only survivor of the litter and is a strong kitten.”

Flora is a loving mother to her only fur child. She watches her rowdy kittens scamper around the house and engage in all sorts of antics. Dandelion is immersed in her two favorite activities, switching back and forth between playtime and mommy time.
