Cat showers her solo kitten with affection after they pulled through together with the help of a family.

About a month ago, a tabby cat was surrendered to Indianapolis Animal Care Services while she was heavily pregnant. Shortly after her arrival, she gave birth to a litter of four and urgently needed a foster home.

IndyHumane, an animal rescue group, stepped up to help and took them in the following day. “She and the kittens came into foster care with me when they were two days old,” Jennifer, a volunteer of IndyHumane, told Love Meow.

The cat, Bunny, was a doting mom from the start. Among the kittens, Dash, an orange tabby, was the biggest baby of the bunch.

A few days later, things took a turn for the worse when Bunny came down with a severe upper respiratory infection (URI). It soon became clear that the kittens needed intervention, as Bunny lost appetite and couldn’t produce enough milk.

“The family went to IndyHumane’s ICU, so Bunny could get more supportive care. Despite intervention, sadly, three of the four kittens didn’t survive the URI, leaving Dash as a singleton.”

With lots of TLC, Bunny made a full recovery. Her kitten Dash powered through the ordeal, and was so happy to have milk from his mom again.

“Bunny is very attentive, so with just Dash left, she literally showers him with a lot of attention,” Jennifer shared with Love Meow. “She’s very young, so this was probably her first (and thankfully last) litter.”

Bunny has filled out so much in a few weeks, and discovered the joy of toys.

“Once she started feeling better, her playful kitten side emerged. She is very energetic, curious, and loves toys. She’s also very sweet and seeks out lots of attention and affection.”
