When feral cats are left to roam intact, the result is litter after litter of kittens. So many of these sweet babies succumb to the harshness of life as a baby in the wild. But groups like LosGatos Foster Animals work hard every day to save these little lives. And one rescue call recently led them to discover eleven kittens in a shed in Madison Heights, WI.

Two mother cats had given birth to their litters in the shed, and these little ones were in rough shape. Nearly half of them passed away, but five babies survived despite their tough odds. These kittens, with one tabby baby in particular, needed medical attention and lots of good food to help them get healthy. And because you shop with a purrpose, cat lover, you made sure these kittens had all the food they could possibly eat!

Feeding All The Furry Mouths

By shopping with iHeartCats, you’re empowering our partnership with Greater Good Charities and enabling donations via the GOODS Program, a pet food distribution initiative in the Greater Good Charities family. This vital program has been keeping hungry bellies full for over a decade, and to date, the GOODS Program has delivered over 578 million meals to shelters and rescues across the country. That’s more than 6,000 truckloads delivered to hungry animals.

If you’ve ever raised a kitten, you know those tiny bodies can put away a truckload of food! Just think about all the food LosGatos needs to feed those five kittens and every other furry mouth in need. They’re sure happy to see those donations roll in because every can and sack delivered means more money for medical care.

And with one of the youngest kittens from these two shed litters hovering near death, medical intervention was certainly needed to bring him back to life. And once stable, that’s where the food came in and helped the little one get up on his paws.

As LosGatos explained, “With the food from the GOODS Program, he has gone from being malnourished to finally growing into his little body and having his fur come in.”

“These little babies, with the help of GOODS, were able to put up a strong fight.”

And these junior cats will now get the chance to become happy adults who will one day learn the joy of a forever home. You gave them that chance, and we can’t thank you enough! So, keep shopping and help us save more lives.
