Luna, Isis and Stellina: Orphaned Kittens Get Lucky
A young, feral cat chose the right porch under which to birth her litter of three kittens. "The house happened to belong to a Calliope Rescue volunteer who cared for the mother and babies," says Calliope's Claudia Bruno. At just four weeks, the three kittens were placed in the shelter's care.
Named Luna, Isis and Stellina, the kittens were hand-fed from a bottle, and adjusted quickly to their new surroundings and family. "I spent eight hours with them until it was clear that I was going to be mom from now on," Bruno says. The mother had disappeared before the staff could manage to rescue her.
Fortunately, all three kittens were adopted as indoor-only cats in loving homes. Shortly after adopting her, Luna's new owner told the shelter, "I can't thank Calliope Rescue enough for saving Luna. My little princess is settling in so quickly! After only four days, she has decided she owns the house."
