A litter of kittens were found behind a warehouse along with a cat. One of them was very clingy to her mom.

Cailey Seymour, the founder of Dorset Rescue Kittens (in Ontario, Canada), was informed about a street cat and her litter of five by a fellow animal rescuer.
The rescuer came across a small colony of cats running around behind a warehouse. She put out a pile of food, and one after another, all the kitties came out from every direction. They were starving and scarfing down the food.
“She sent me a photo of the kittens asking if we could take them. My answer was ‘absolutely.’ She was successful in catching all five kittens and their mom,” Cailey told Love Meow.

The cat mother, Coco, was estimated to be five years old. She was just skin and bones when she arrived along with her kittens.
“Coco spent her entire life on the streets as far as we know. We were worried that she was feral but that couldn’t be further from the truth.”

They were dirty, scrawny, and came with upper respiratory infections. “It was apparent that they had been eating leaves and grass since there wasn’t food readily available to them,” Cailey shared with Love Meow.
The kittens were very timid at first, but with Coco’s comforting and encouraging presence, they soon came out of their shells. Coco washed their faces and reassured them that they were safe. “She was leaning into love like she had been craving it her entire life.”
