A cat was found on the doorstep of a home in the nick of time so her kittens could have a roof over their heads.

Early this month, Jin’s Bottle Babies, an animal rescue in Phoenix, Arizona, was contacted about a cat who had been left on a doorstep while she was in active labor.

The homeowners helped the cat through her delivery but were worried as she was very stressed and unable to nurse her kittens. “My gut was saying to intake them and figure out the details later, so we did,” Shelbi Uyehara, the founder of Jin’s Bottle Babies, told Love Meow.

Shelbi’s husband, Brandon, set up a nursery spot for the cat family, and they arranged transport to bring them into their rescue.

The kittens were cold upon arrival, so Brandon placed them in an incubator to warm them up. Once their body temperatures were regulated, he supplemented them with a bottle and placed them back with their momma, who was understandably still terrified and guarded after the long ordeal.

With a quiet room and a comfortable, warm nest, the cat mother slowly began to relax. “Brandon set up a camera so he could watch from afar, and eventually she let the babies nurse,” Shelbi shared with Love Meow.

“As it turned out, the people who dropped her off mid-birth (on the doorstep), have struck rough times and have been living in their car at a park for sometime now. The woman who contacted us, apparently got the family a caseworker to help them out.”
