Four "gremlin" kittens moved indoors for the first time, spending this winter in comfort and warmth.

Last month, four little kittens were surrendered to the Humane Society for Hamilton County as strays, without a cat mother. They were around four weeks old and desperately needed a foster home.

Jennifer, a volunteer for the shelter, was asked if she could help the kittens. Without hesitation, she took them into her care with open arms.

"Someone at the shelter said they looked like gremlins, so they were assigned Gremlins names," Jennifer shared with Love Meow.

The kittens were inquisitive, fearless, and playful from the start. Shortly after arriving, they started scampering around their new room, claiming every inch they touched.

The fluffiest kitten, Gizmo, was an instant character, screaming at his foster mom with squeaky meows.

They were treated for tummy troubles and needed help cleaning their faces and paws. They likely had been separated from their mom too early and struggled to eat on their own.

"They couldn't figure out the bottle either. I would mix formula with their food, but they weren't eating enough to gain weight," Jennifer told Love Meow.

After two days of fighting the bottle, Jennifer offered formula in a dish. The kittens were intrigued, sniffing around. Once their tongues touched the food, they started lapping it up with vigor.

With their bellies filled to the brim at each meal, the kittens began putting on weight. "After a few days of formula in a dish, they were also eating wet food much better, so I was able to wean them off the formula completely."
