Three kittens made it through a storm, and after nearly one year of waiting, they received the best news together.
A litter of kittens was found outside, wet and cold. They had been born during a severe storm and left behind. Their finders immediately brought them in to dry and warm them.
Three of the kittens survived but were not out of the woods. They were a few days old, still with their eyes closed. When Jennifer of Kitten Nuggets (an all-volunteer rescue) received an urgent plea to help the trio, she sprang into action.
She treated the kittens for colds, fed them around the clock, and kept them warm in a cozy incubator.

Despite being palm-sized, the kittens’ tenacity shone through. They responded to Jennifer’s voice at feeding time, rose from their warm nest, and lunged towards the smell of kitten formula.
The trio, Radley, Kingston, and Cavanaugh, motivated each other to eat more when they were fed together. “Often babies with a weaker latch or lazy latch may improve when in competition with siblings,” Jennifer shared.

The kittens began to make steady gains with full meals and tender loving care. They took feeding very seriously and never wasted a drop of food.
Once they felt a pep in their step, they started exploring around with newfound curiosity.

As soon as the kittens graduated into a playpen, they chased each other around, darting through the room and claiming every nook and cranny.
They did everything as a trio, eating, creating antics, and napping in a purr pile. There wasn’t a moment they weren’t together.

As they entered their boisterous kitten phase, their personalities lit up the room. At dinner, all three meowed loudly like a symphony, circling their foster mom until she placed the food in front of them.
With their ravenous appetites, there was never a dull moment at mealtime.

The trio entertained everyone in the house with triple the amount of mischief.
When they tired themselves out from a whirlwind of activity, they nestled together, weaving a perfectly cozy cuddle puddle.

The three shared an adorable bond, and Jennifer hoped they would find a loving home together. Days turned into weeks, and weeks turned into months.
The trio grew into beautiful young cats but had yet to find the special someone to come scoop them up.
After nearly one year in a foster home, their patience paid off. The perfect application came in.
A woman fell head over heels for the trio and wanted to give all three the happily ever after they deserved. “It was definitely worth the wait.”

“They have an amazing new mom and a huge, gorgeous home to zoom around. I’ll miss their silly antics, but I’m so glad they found the perfect human who will spoil them silly.”
The trio is spending their first Christmas in their forever home, enjoying all the festivities with their new mom.
From being born in a storm to now romping around without a care, they will only know love and comfort from here on out.
