Fern, the feline sensation
Meet Jennifer from Kitty Kingdom
A remarkable tale unfolded at an animal shelter in Indianapolis, IN, where Fern the cat and her adorable litter of six found themselves in a heartwarming predicament. Fern, a doting mother from the get-go, tended to her kittens’ every need with grace and love.

During their stay at the shelter, a lone tabby cat, who had sadly lost her family, arrived seeking companionship and connection. Feeling compassion for the lonely tabby, the shelter decided to introduce her to Fern and her kittens, hoping for a bond to form. To everyone’s delight, Fern embraced the newcomer without hesitation, showing kindness and acceptance.

Jennifer, a devoted foster volunteer at Kitty Kingdom, expressed her joy at witnessing the heartwarming friendship that developed between Fern and the orphaned tabby.

Jennifer welcomed the family of eight into her foster home with open arms, providing a comfortable environment for Fern and someone to help her navigate the demanding task of raising seven kittens.
“She was a very attentive mother. The kittens were already weaning when they arrived, but she still let them nurse often and kept them really clean,” Jennifer shared with Love Meow.

Jennifer set up a cozy corner for felines on the block, giving them a private space where they could easily come and go as they pleased. She was thrilled to see them enjoying the extra space to unwind, stretch, and recharge.

“The kittens didn’t always feel like nursing together, but when they did, they all eventually found a comfortable spot to settle in.”

All seven kittens were eager for milk simultaneously, crowding around Jennifer at once. Once their bellies were full, they would snuggle up together in a cuddle-puddle and drift off to sleep. If Jennifer was nearby, they would one by one climb into her lap and purr contently.

With an unlimited milk buffet, full daycare arrangements, and a devoted nanny, Jennifer was able to relax and enjoy herself more. She spent her days cuddling with her kittens or basking in the sunshine by the window.

Jennifer’s New Peaceful Moment
When the kittens were out for a check-up at the vet, Fern finally got to enjoy some peace and quiet. However, as soon as her little ones returned, she eagerly rushed over, showering them with affection and cuddles.
Even though they were weaned, a few kittens couldn’t resist seeking comfort in nursing from their mama, and Fern didn’t mind one bit.

Fern is an amazing mom, Jennifer adopted kittens from the block who she continued to care for from head to tail, showering them with love and cuddles. Initially unsure which of the five tabbies was the boss baby, Jennifer noticed one of them had a unique schedule compared to the others.

Aspen, the kitten, is considered to be the momma’s boy of the litter. Jennifer, the new cat on the block, observed that Aspen often sleeps while the other kittens play, and plays independently while they rest. She doesn’t seem too interested in nursing either. Aspen is easily distinguishable by her long ear tufts and her especially silky fur. The seven kittens grew into beautiful, independent young cats. Eventually, Fern started taking a step back to allow her kittens to explore and develop on their own.

The kittens have grown into lively young cats now. Jennifer from New Kitties on the Block noticed that once the kittens reached 2-3 pounds, Fern was ready to retire from motherhood for good. She wanted more attention and time from her humans and desired to be the center of attention that she rightfully deserved.

Jennifer from Pew Kitties on the Block praised a cat for being an excellent mother and taking great care of her kittens. She mentioned that the cat enjoys human affection and purrs when picked up. Jennifer expressed her hope that the cat will find a loving forever home where she can be pampered like a baby again.
