A cat who was found in a carrier with her kittens on the sidewalk, is so happy to be helped by kind neighbors.

Ellen Richter, a foster carer based in Las Vegas, was notified about a cat and her litter of six found outside in a neighborhood.
Neighbors discovered two carriers, one of which had the mom and her kittens, and the other contained two adult cats believed to be the siblings of the cat mother.
Their owners moved away and left them on the sidewalk. “Thankfully, the neighbors took them in that night, and started calling around for help,” Ellen shared with Love Meow.

“One of my friends saw the plea and was able to coordinate picking up the cat mama, getting her to safety with her babies, and getting a rescue group to sponsor them.”
Another rescue organization stepped up to take in the two other adult cats, and had them vetted, neutered and put up for adoption.

The cat mom, Valentina, and her kittens were brought into foster care with Ellen last weekend, so she could have a comfortable place to raise her babies and plenty of food to feast on.
Valentina was exhausted after the long ordeal, and stayed in bed with her kittens the first night. She could finally relax and catch some much-needed rest.
