Two pregnant stray cats share Bond and babies and live as one big family

You will enjoy this story of two mother cats raising their kittens together as one big, happy family of stripes and whiskers.

Pickle and Olive live together in their Nashville, TN wildcat colony and are best friends. The family who looked after their colony befriended the ladies and noted their close friendship. They also discovered that both Pickle and Olive were pregnant.

The family reached out to Nashville Cat Rescue to provide the cats with the extra care their pregnancies required. Speaking to Love Meow, a rescue volunteer Kiki said the family had a request: “The girls stay together even if it was time to adopt.”

Kiki picked up the ladies and immediately recognized the connection between Pickle and Olive. He wrote on Instagram: “The only time I’ve seen such pure love is the Lion King with Nala & Simba.”

Bonded best friends who have babies

As feral cats, the tabby girls were a bit reluctant at first, but it helped to help each other out. Kiki said to Love Meow: “It was clear that the girls loved each other and felt safe together. I spent as much time with them as possible and still respected their space requirements. “

Although she gave Pickle and Olive her cat-time, Kiki continued her work of interacting with the cats, making sure that “As babies came, they felt comfortable with me helping when they needed it or just doing the things they needed as did the daily weighing of the kittens. ”

Although cats often take a while to get involved with new ideas, Pickle soon decided Kiki was fine and even allowed some pets. Pickle soon became a fan of Kiki’s attention, and since her best friend agreed, Olive stopped by for love too.

“If I petted Pickle, Olive would come in for some love.”

Beautiful baby kittens

The days passed and the bellies continued to grow. Kiki even noted that Olive’s belly “sure looks like the shape of an olive.”

So it was no surprise to wake up one morning and find one of the ladies snuggling up to newborn kittens. Pickle had given birth to six kittens!

Unfortunately one died, but Pickle immediately became a mother and cared for the 5 survivors. Between Kiki and BFF Olive, Pickle had the strongest support system.

“While Pickle did the mommy’s things, Olive was still trying to touch her in the playpen.”

“After about a week, I kept seeing Olive hanging out with the babies in the playpen. She started taking care of them like they were her own and, interestingly, got a little protective of them when I tried to complain to them. “

Not long after, Kiki woke up to a repeated scene, but this time it was Olive in the works, and she had already given birth to a kitten. After 24 hours of work, Olive gave birth to her second kitten, but Kiki knew something was wrong. Your instincts were right.

“I took her to the vet to make sure everything was okay. She had to do an emergency caesarean section, which ultimately saved her life. “

In the end, Olive lost one of the babies but was the mother of two healthy kitten cubs.

And suddenly best friends Pickle and Olive had become a family of nine!

Two mothers and their darling kittens

“Pickle and Olive are such a delight to see and their kittens are undoubtedly cute. They exchange babies and take care of each other as if they were their own. “

Kiki posted pictures of the family on Instagram, shared the cutest photo of the kittens and welcomed the fans to the “Milchtal”. The happiest place for a kitten!

“Pickle has five girls and Olive has two little boys. I call them cousin sisters and cousin brothers. They grow so much every day and Pickle and Olive have become more and more trusting. “

And after their kittens are weaned, both Pickle and Olive are neutered. No more worrying about litters or the risks associated with kitten birth, giving them the chance to live in forever happy homes where they can be best friends for life!
