When they got to the scene, the shelter workers performed all the usual cautionary checks. Furthermore, they made sure that none of the siblings had wandered off and been left behind. Then, when they arrived back at the animal home, the cute kittens were given a medical and pronounced healthy – and very lucky.
For the mother, though, the shelter had a different tactic, as Mazzoni made clear. “As the kittens’ mom was a feral cat, we left a trap down for her,” she said. “We were then able to bring her into our home where she was neutered and health checked by our [veterinary] team, and then we returned her back where she was found, as a part of our Trap, Neuter and Return program,” she continued.
