The Cat People of Melbourne team has taken in an entire feline family that was abandoned under the most senseless circumstances by an irresponsible “guardian.” Now, the two adult cats and a litter of baby kittens are safe and recovering from the sad incident – keeping close and waiting for someone special to give them a home.

The two cats and their litter of kittens were found in a taped-up box, abandoned in the street.

The box was fortunately found and brought to a vet clinic where the cats were spotted by one of the charity’s rescuers. The mama cat refused to stop cuddling her kittens the whole time.

The two bicolor cats are both “lovely, sweet, socialized pets.” Neither the grown-ups nor the babies display any signs of illness.

The little family is now urgently looking for a foster (or forever) home, so they can find real comfort and the kittens can grow up in a warm home. It’s so heartbreaking to see someone abandon their pets because they didn’t take the appropriate actions to ensure they wouldn’t have kittens. Spaying and neutering pets is vitally important and should not be overlooked by responsible guardians. We hope that this sweet family finds a new home where they will be given the proper care and respect that they deserve.

If you are interested in adopting or fostering the cats, message Cat People of Melbourne via their Facebook page. To learn more about Cat People of Melbourne, click here.
