By day 26, Georgia had started to recover physically after delivering her babies. However, her mental state was still troubled as she searched for her lost kittens. The following day, we introduced three motherless newborn kittens to Georgia. She took an instant liking to them, although only one was able to latch onto her for feeding. The other two were bottle-fed until they could manage on their own. Sadly, by day 29, one of the kittens passed away, and we speculate that it might have been due to a small amount of blood near its rear end. Nevertheless, Georgia concentrated on nurturing the other two kittens, Graffiti and Gumball, who were healthy and thriving. Georgia named the newest addition, an orange kitten, Goober on day 32, and all three were growing well, weighing between 7-8 ounces. Georgia’s excellent mothering skills ensured that the kittens stayed clean and well-fed. On day 39, Georgia received a new collar from her owner, and on day 41, everyone was doing well.
On day 45, Georgia would spend quality time with her babies after every meal. They would snuggle, nurse, and be groomed in a bonding experience that both the mother and her litter enjoyed. Despite a visible tumor on her reproductive system, the vet assured Georgia’s cancer was treatable, and she would soon undergo chemotherapy and make a full recovery. However, during this time, her babies would have to be separated from her until the treatment was over. Unfortunately, Graffiti had not yet learned to jump out of the pool. On day 50, Georgia was adopted by @torbazorb14 and renamed Milo. She embarked on a journey of cancer treatment and recovery with her new owner. On day 52, she attended her first chemo treatment with her loving owner by her side. Finally, on day 70, Georgia/Milo completed her last chemo treatment and was feeling healthy. This tough cookie had overcome life on the streets, losing her puppies, and battling chemotherapy. By day 85, her babies had grown bigger and more confident, weighing around 2.5 pounds.
Even though I am a dog lover at heart, I’ll definitely miss these adorable little troublemakers. After 95 days apart, Georgia (or Milo) and her kitten Gumball (or Toby) finally had their long-awaited reunion. We were all hoping for a picture-perfect moment where they would run towards each other and play joyfully, but animals are creatures of honesty and Milo seemed a little intimidated by Toby. Nevertheless, it was a happy and genuine ending for them both. I’m overjoyed for Milo and will always hold her and her three kittens close to my heart. Don’t hesitate to share this heartwarming story with your loved ones!
