Momma Cali is a beautiful, sweet and loving two-year-old, female Calico cat looking for a loving guardian, along with her brood of six male kittens.
Grif is an orange tabby; Nat is mostly white; Piglet is white with tabby patches; Celedon is a dark grey tabby; Simba is a silver tabby; and Jellybean is a white patch tabby.
Momma Cali was found as a pregnant stray in southern Illinois and landed in a shelter cage. That is certainly no place to raise a family.
At the same time, I was fostering Nat, a tiny little bottle baby kitten weighing less than half a pound, who had been found in some bushes.
Bottle babies are tough to care for and Nat was sadly losing weight in my care, so I took in Momma Cali and her five newborns, who were born August 31st at the shelter.
I was hoping that this wonderful mom would accept Nat and feed him as her very own … and she did!
Phew, crisis averted. Nat is at least a couple weeks older than all the other kittens so he taught them all the ropes … how to use a litter box, scratching post, play with toys, and wrestle!
Momma Cali and all six kittens are absolutely fabulous. They are incredibly social, cuddly, curious, healthy, great with cats and learning to accept dogs. They were fostered by a family with a gentle animal-loving eleven-year-old child and they did beautifully with him and his friends.
Mom is now spayed, and the boys were all neutered yesterday, they are all up-to-date on age-appropriate vaccines, virus-tested negative, fecal-tested, dewormed and micro-chipped.
Their adoption fee of $175 each or $300 as a pair benefits the rescued pets of Friends of Petraits.
If you’re interested in meeting and possibly adopting Momma Cali or any one or two of her kittens, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for an adoption application.
Friends of Petraits Rescue does not adopt out single kittens unless there is another cat for them to play with. It is always in the best interest of kittens to be adopted out in pairs, or with their mom.
They are all currently living in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.
