Xeno and Ripley are two cats who do everything together. From sleeping to eating and playing, they are always side by side. Currently, they are even raising their litter of eight kittens as a team. According to Sarah MacLeod, a volunteer at the Exploits Valley SPCA, these feline siblings are truly inseparable.
The Exploits Valley SPCA welcomed a group of young cat mothers in September. These felines were all under a year old and weighed less than four pounds when they were rescued by volunteers from a local rescue organization. They were brought to the shelter where they now reside in a spacious room equipped with lots of toys and comfortable bedding. The co-parenting cats are doing well and thriving in their new environment.
According to the moms, raising a large family is a team effort. MacLeod shared that they gave the kittens their own room as they needed extra time to develop. Both mothers take care of the litter together and it’s impossible to distinguish between their kittens. This suits Xeno and Ripley just fine.
When the mother felines are not busy taking care of their playful babies, they can be spotted standing together beside the window of their room, eagerly waiting for someone to adopt them. As per MacLeod, they love gazing out the glass door into the hallway and relish all the attention and affection from humans.
Some of the kittens have potential adopters, however, none of the mothers have received any applications yet. The shelter is now on the lookout for a caring family who can provide a home for Xeno and Ripley, who will shower them with love and affection. It’s evident to everyone at the shelter that these cats share a special bond and are ready to give all their love and cuddles to their future home. Source: lovemeowbark.com
