A stray cat was rescued along with her three newborn babies. The sweet mama named Sprinkles kept her babies by her side and refused to anywhere without them.

Ashley @youngestoldcatlady

Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS, in Lynnwood, Washington) took the family of four into their care and placed them in a foster home so the mother cat could have a safe environment to raise her kittens.

"They were found as strays near the Oregon border. The kittens were four days old when I got them," Ashely (@ youngestoldcatlady ), foster mom, told Love Meow .

Mama Sprinkles is very protective of her kittens, and even when she arrived at her foster home, she refused to eat until she knew that they were absolutely safe and would growl out of instinct to protect her babies. Ashley wanted to help her relax but first, she must gain her trust.

She offered Sprinkles some food and reached out her hand to pet her. The sweet mama sniffed her hand and rubbed her face on it and wanted more. It was a relief to know that mama had officially given her human friend the stamp of approval.

From that day on, Ashley worked side by side with mama Sprinkles, caring for her babies.

Baby Fritter - he is the only boy and heaviest of the three Ashley @youngestoldcatlady

While two of the kittens (Coco and Fritter) were growing, the tiniest baby Maple stayed small. Despite their best efforts, she passed away a week later. Mama kept her little runt loved till the very end.

"She did see Maple after she passed away, and I think she understood. A mama always understands."

Coco and Fritter are thriving in foster care.

They began learning to crawl with mama Sprinkles watching over them every step of the way. She refused to take a break from mothering her kittens until Ashley came in to help her.

"Mama often waits till I come in to go potty and eat while I watch the babies," Ashely told Love Meow.

Even with assistance, mama can't help but come back and check on her kittens to make sure that they are OK.

Two days ago, Coco started to open her eyes to see for the first time while Fritter decided to take his time.

Ashley comes to cuddle with the kittens so mama Sprinkles can get some much-needed replenishment and rest.

"They are tiny adorable jelly beans who wanted snuggles."

Ashley @youngestoldcatlady

As the kitties grow bigger, mama begins to let them explore a bit more while keeping an eye on them. When the babies are fast asleep, she snuggles up to Ashley for some cuddle time of her own. Mama needs love, too!

"Coco and Fritter are strong and healthy. I can't wait to watch them grow up and flourish in Maple's memory. They are just adorable."

A friendly stray cat came running when a rescuer who had given him food, came back for him.

Paul Santell, an avid animal rescuer ( Paul the Cat Guy ) based in New York City heard about a few stray cats that needed rescue near a bus station in Ridgewood, Queens, New York.

Paul Santell

"An employee at this bus station in Ridgewood met me last year (at a cat colony where 29 cats were TNRd and 9 kittens were rescued) and told me about the cats at his job.," Paul said.

Two weeks ago, Paul went there to trap a pregnant stray, but instead spotted many more cats. "Two ran right up to me and tried forcing themselves past my hands to rush inside a spring loaded trap. With only two traps on me, I told the employee that I would be back."

Paul fed the kitties that he couldn't trap that night and gave this very friendly tabby a cuddle and a kiss before heading back. The next day, when Paul returned to the bus station, the tabby cat was still there.

As soon as he arrived, the kitty came running towards him as if to say "take me with you."

Paul Santell

"This is the super friendly guy who I was holding in the picture at the bus station. I went back and he came running right towards me," Paul said.

Paul picked him up along with three other cats that he trapped that night. A total of six cats were rescued from the bus staton that week.

Paul Santell

The friendly bus station cat was named Flapjack. After getting him fixed and fully vetted, he was placed in foster care.

"He is loving being inside a real home, albeit a foster home," Paul said.

Paul Santell

The sweet little boy can't get enough of head scritches. He follows his foster mom around the house, wanting attention and pets.

The tabby cat is loving his indoor life and hopes someday soon he will have a place to call his own.

Paul Santell

No more wandering on the streets and looking for food scraps...

With help from rescuers like Paul, Flapjack and many other formerly stray cats are getting a chance at a better life.

Victoria went to a local shelter to help a friend look for a cat but ended up falling in love with a very shy kitty who had been overlooked by a lot of people.

Victoria @bruce.cleftkitty

Victoria was at the Cats Protection Adoption Center (in St Helens, Merseyside, UK) with a friend 1.5 years ago. She hadn't planned to adopt a cat but one of the kitties caught her attention - it was a beautiful 8-month-old cat with a cleft lip.

As she approached him, the shy little boy was so nervous that he quickly retreated to his bed, his security spot. After talking to the shelter staff, they learned that the kitty had been abandoned. He was very timid after all that he had gone through.

Since then, he had stayed at the shelter for three months and yet no one had stopped for him because of his shyness and concerns about his deformity.

"His cleft lip is only cosmetic and doesn't affect him," Victoria told Love Meow .

Bruce, formerly named Marlin, at the adoption center. Cats Protection St Helens Adoption Center

Victoria saw a beautiful little guy hidden under that shy exterior. "I knelt down and talked to him. When I saw his cute little face, I knew I wanted to give him a home," Victoria told Love Meow.

She renamed the kitty Bruce. That day, Bruce left the shelter for good.

First day home! Victoria @bruce.cleftkitty

"It took him quite a while to come out of his shell when we brought him home. We showered him with toys, learned that he likes to play fetch, and sat with him and just stroke him to keep him calm," Victoria told Love Meow.

With a lot of patience and plenty of cat treats, Bruce slowly came out from hiding.

Victoria @bruce.cleftkitty

When Bruce decided that he would no longer be afraid, Victoria and her partner were surprised to discover what a cuddlebug he truly is. Underneath that timid facade, there hidden a loving soul who just wanted to snuggle.

"He loves to roll on his back for tummy strokes and loves cuddles with me."

Victoria @bruce.cleftkitty

The couple has three other cats at home.

It didn't take long for Bruce to start cuddling with his feline brothers.

Victoria @bruce.cleftkitty

Chad and Alex, who were rescued from the same shelter as Bruce, took their little brother under their wing.

"His older brother Alex likes to snuggle with him!"

Bruce and Alex Victoria @bruce.cleftkitty

Ron, who came from a different shelter, became Bruce's best play buddy and partner in crime.

They like to chase each other and create mischief around the house.

Victoria @bruce.cleftkitty

Bruce adores his feline brothers and shares everything with them - treats, toys, and Bird TV.

Now at two years old, Bruce is confident, playful, cuddly and extremely vocal.

He's a goofy little guy who loves to play and follows his human mom everywhere she goes. "He likes to meow loudly if he's not in the room that I'm in," Victoria told Love Meow.

Victoria @bruce.cleftkitty

Bruce is no longer scared of things or people. He's as happy as can be.

Playing with his human mom! Victoria @bruce.cleftkitty

"When we first brought him home, he was incredibly timid and shy," Victoria told Love Meow.

"But with encouragement and his three other kitty brothers, he has blossomed into a happy, loud boy!"

Three tiny kittens were found ice-cold in a window well by a member of the public in the Arlington county, Virginia. The 3-week-old feline babies were rescued in the nick of time.

Animal Welfare League of Arlington

Tuesday night, Officers White and Swetnam responded to a call about three motherless kittens left behind in a neighbor's window well.

When the officers safely retrieved the kittens, they noticed that their breathing was faint. They brought them straight to the Animal Welfare League of Arlington (AWLA) to get them the help they needed to survive. Nursery Coordinator Marnie at Kitten Academy took over the kitties and immediately started working on warming their little bodies.

"When they arrived they were freezing and lifeless, but breathing. We put them in our incubator, and after a few hours they were warm enough that they got hungry. That's when we knew they would be OK," Chelsea Lindsey, Communications Specialist of AWLA, told Love Meow .

Animal Welfare League of Arlington

They do not know how the kittens got in the window well. The mother cat was nowhere to be found, and by the temperature of the kittens, it was clear that the mother cat had been absent for some time.

"They were ice-cold and would have died if we left them there," Chelsea told Love Meow. "Saving lives doesn't stop just because of a little snow here."

Animal Welfare League of Arlington

Once the kittens' body temperature was back to normal, they began to feel hungry and were eager to eat.

"All of them ate from their bottles like champs! They have been named Ana, Elsa, and of course, Olaf!"

Animal Welfare League of Arlington

The rescue group arranged a foster home for the trio so they could continue their recovery and growing in the comfort of a loving home. "They are doing great in a foster home and getting stronger by the day," Chelsea told Love Meow.

The three little panther kitties are thriving and enjoying all the good food, cuddles, toys and warm laps!

Melvin the cat was found as a stray wandering around the streets. When he was taken to the shelter, staff quickly noticed that he was quite special.

Best Friends Animal Society

A few months ago, Melvin was rescued from a city shelter in Los Angeles and transferred to the Best Friends Pet Adoption Center for a second chance at life. The sweet 3-year-old cat was born with a condition called microphthalmia, in which the eyeball is smaller than normal.

The medical team at Best Friends determined that his vision was either limited or non-existent. Melvin had likely been living with pain all his life, so a surgery to remove his eyes would make him feel a lot better.

Jackie Gudgel first learned about Melvin through a Facebook post. "I saw it and just completely fell in love with him. I was completely enamored with his sweet little face," Jackie told Love Meow .

Best Friends Animal Society

At the time Melvin was at the shelter in Mission Hills, waiting for surgery. Jackie decided to visit him. ( Scroll down for video )

"I petted his little face for about 15 or 20 minutes, and he was an angel - a little timid at first (Maybe he was wondering 'who is this lady and why is she so excited to pet me?') but he was very affectionate and purring and sweet as can be," Jackie told Love Meow.

Best Friends Animal Society

After his eye surgery, Samantha Bell DiGenova, cat behavior and enrichment lead of Best Friends, took Melvin home to foster. She helped him learn to adjust to living indoors.

As Melvin recovered, he began feeling more confident each day. Despite having no vision, he was able to explore every nook and cranny, using his whiskers and his senses of hearing, smell and touch to navigate around the house.

"He'd hear and smell the other cats outside his door and walk toward them. I could see his ears and whiskers working overtime to compensate for the lack of sight," Samantha said.

Jackie Gudgel

When Melvin was ready for adoption, someone out there couldn't wait to see him. Jackie reached out to Samantha and set up a time to reunite with her old pal.

"When I saw him again there was the same expressiveness in his face," she said. "The surgery didn't change that much about him, and it didn't change anything for me either. He was as cute as ever."

Jackie Gudgel

That day, little Melvin left with Jackie and headed to his new home.

Jackie and her boyfriend Ellison were overjoyed to welcome their little addition into their family. The couple slowly and gradually introduced different parts of their apartment to Melvin.

Jackie Gudgel

"For the first week he was staying in our living room, and after that we opened up the kitchen area and our hallway that leads to our downstairs bathroom.

"Finally we let him explore the upstairs - which even after a month with us, he is still a bit timid about. He finally got up on our bed the other day, which was very exciting!"

Jackie Gudgel

The couple purchased pet stairs to make it easier for Melvin to get on the couch and the bed.

"He doesn't need the couch ones any more as he pops on and off the couch like a pro now! He gets up the courage to try new things (like jumping on the couch or using the stairs)," Jackie told Love Meow.

Jackie Gudgel

Melvin never ceases to amaze his humans with his ability to adapt to his surroundings.

"He has a fascinating way of sensing things around him - he'll move his head back and forth (we call it 'scanning') to pick up sounds and smells, and he'll also move his head around so his whiskers can get a sense of where things are."

Jackie Gudgel

Melvin is a snugglebug who loves to play with his humans and has a collection of boxes to scratch, chew on and hide in.

"At any given time we'll have a few toys strewn on the floor. He loves crawling into tiny weird spaces that we'd never imagine he could get into," Jackie told Love Meow. "When he's not chewing on his toys or cardboard he's extremely affectionate, he's a big fan of chilling with me on the couch and making biscuits on my lap and purring the whole time."

"He's just a great cat who's brought so much love into our lives."

A 7-year-old cat and her 3-year-old daughter were found pregnant, living in a cat colony in Alabama.

TNR volunteers from Forgotten Felines of Huntsville (in North Alabama) were able to rescue the mother and daughter pair along with 10+ other cats.

Robyn Anderson

Robyn Anderson, an avid foster carer from the rescue group, took in the mother and daughter duo so they could have a safe place to have their babies and someone to care for them.

"They came to me to foster on February 20th. We expected Kristi to have her kittens nearly immediately because she was so big (she looked like she'd swallowed a basketball). We figured we'd have a while to wait for Katia to have her kittens," Robyn told Love Meow .

A few days later, they woke up to quite a surprise.

Robyn Anderson

On February 25th, Robyn walked into the foster room to find that Katia had given birth to four healthy kittens - two black kittens and two black and white tuxedos.

"We were sure that Kristi would have her kittens very soon after, but were amazed that she didn't have them," she told Love Meow.

Robyn Anderson

They waited for another three weeks, and still no babies had arrived. They started getting worried.

"I finally planned to take her to the vet first thing Monday morning just to be sure she was OK, but she must have known my plans because she started having kittens at about 6:30 Monday morning."

Robyn Anderson

Over the next three hours, Kristi didn't want to be anywhere but with her daughter in her nursing pen.

"The entire time Kristi was in labor, Katia was right there with her, grooming her, soothing her, helping to clean the kittens as they were born. It was the most amazing thing I have ever seen." ( Scroll down for video )

Robyn Anderson

Mama Kristi had a total of six healthy kittens. Katia was there to help clean the newborn kittens while nursing her own.

"I have heard of cats co-mothering their kittens, but didn't realize it came with midwife services too!"

Robyn Anderson

"I had assumed that Kristi would want to have her kittens in another location and then perhaps merge the two litters when they were a bit older, but she and Katia and their kittens are sharing the same crate, and it's going very well," Robyn told Love Meow.

"At first each litter of kittens gravitated toward their own mothers, but after a day, they all started nursing off both mothers."

Robyn Anderson

Once the kittens are big enough, they will all be spayed and neutered and put for adoption via Forgotten Felines of Huntsville.

As for now, the two mamas are working tirelessly, nursing their babies and keeping them clean and loved.

Robyn Anderson

Kristi and Katia are constantly cuddling, cheering each other on.

Robyn Anderson

Some of the older kittens even have started grooming the tinier ones and teaching them how to play.

"It is a wonderful and amazing experience, and I'm looking forward to watching them grow up together," Robyn told Love Meow.

A couple went to adopt a kitten but couldn't leave his brother there when they found out just how close they were.

Supplied by Grace Serena

Last Tuesday, Grace Serena and her boyfriend, Jake, went to an adoption center in Menai, Australia, hoping to give a cat a forever home.

"We researched on the RSPCA (NSW) website and Marlow's beautiful little face popped up and we found that he was located not even 10 minutes away from us," Grace told Love Meow .

The couple made a trip to visit little Marlow. When they were taken to see him, they noticed another tabby in the same kennel and were immediately drawn by the bond they shared.

"We walked inside and they were laying in their cage with their paws wrapped around one another. They immediately hopped up and prodded their paws through the caging to reach out to us. They were not only affectionate but incredibly eager to get out of their small confines."

Supplied by Grace Serena

The feline brothers were found as strays by a member of the public, and they had always been inseparable. The couple spent some time playing with both kittens. Wherever Marlow went, his brother Mittens followed.

"I had Marlow in my arms and Jake had Mittens in his, and although they were showing us extreme amounts of affection they were still looking at one another and attempting to make their way back to each other," Grace told Love Meow.

Supplied by Grace Serena

Grace ended up sitting on the floor with both kittens on her lap. Right away, Marlow and Mittens started purring in perfect harmony and became more relaxed around their human friends.

"Jake was absolutely insistent that they were not to be separated. After much deliberation, we decided it was either no cats or both cats, and... no cats is never a good idea."

Supplied by Grace Serena

That day, the two brothers left the adoption center and headed to their forever home together. After exploring around their new abode, they felt right at home.

"They have claimed the office chair, the fluffiest pillows and the laundry mat as their sleeping pads," Grace told Love Meow.

Supplied by Grace Serena

"Both kittens are extremely affectionate, adore cuddles and want nothing more than to spend time with 'their humans.' They prefer the company of each other over toys. They hype each other up and wrestle and then fall asleep with their paws wrapped around one another.

"They have a bond that I have never witnessed between another two animals."

Supplied by Grace Serena

Marlow and Mittens are never away from each other - like two peas in a pod.

"The pair loves to sit at the window and watch the cars driving down the street. They love to sit at the highest spots they can reach and observe everything going on below them," Grace told Love Meow. "If one goes to get a drink of water, the other follows."

Supplied by Grace Serena

The couple went to the adoption center to find a cat, but ended up being chosen by two kitties.

"I couldn't be happier with our decision to adopt them both... They have brought us so much joy, laughter and happiness."

Two tiny kittens (born on March 9th) came to their foster home in need of intensive care.

As soon as they arrived, a nurturing cat named Benny could sense that these fur babies needed some serious TLC.

Ellen Carozza LVT

Ellen Carozza, Feline Licensed Veterinary Technician of NOVA Cat Clinic (in Virginia), took in a pair of newborn kittens from a local rescue group, Operation Hood . The kittens were severely ill.

They knew these two babies needed more intensive care than what they could provide and drove from Spotsylvania, VA to Northern VA to drop the babies off," Ellen told Love Meow .

After a 2-hour drive, they had the kittens transferred to Ellen so they could get a better chance at survival.

Ellen Carozza LVT

The kittens were 24 hours old. They looked like a mini version of Ellen's cat Benny who offers to care for every kitten that his human brings home.

Benny was smitten the moment he saw the kittens.

Ellen showed Benny his new foster baby before arrival. Ellen Carozza LVT

Ellen had to tube feed the kittens around the clock. "We knew we had a severe problem at hand when one of the babies had blood in their urine, which indicates a significant problem that needed immediate attention."

Despite their best efforts, one of the kittens passed 48 hours later.

Ellen Carozza LVT

"Benny knew something was wrong with the critical baby as he would push his way into the hourly checks, tube feeding sessions and cleaning the sick baby," Ellen told Love Meow.

"We like to think he was prepping this baby on letting go as his attitude changes a bit and becomes more intense with his care."

Ellen Carozza LVT

"Despite the intense care we provide with medical intervention, we still can't save them all. But we can learn how to create better protocols for care on the next case that may have similar issues."

The remaining baby girl, Jubilee, pulled through, and Benny amped up the TLC even more.

Ellen Carozza LVT

"From 24/7 monitoring at the incubator at home, to waiting at the window for us when I get home from work, he's ready to dish out the kisses (Benny blessings) and much needed grooming from another cat," Ellen told Love Meow.

Benny is very protective of his foster baby and guards her when she naps.

Ellen Carozza LVT

At five days old, Jubilee began to change color on her ears, tail, nose and toe pads.

"She started to look more like a polar bear than a kitten. We have a Siamese mix on our hands, not a white kitten," Ellen told Love Meow.

Benny stays by her side most of the time, making sure she is safe and loved.

Ellen Carozza LVT

Thanks to Foster Dad Benny, she's found her purr and is thriving in foster care.

Benny waits for his human mom to finish bottle feeding so he can take over and wash her.

Ellen Carozza LVT

"Jubilee enjoys belly rubs and snuggling with anyone who will hold her cupped in their hands," Ellen told Love Meow.

"Benny thinks she is beautiful no matter what and continues to be the white knight. He is keeping vigil over his baby."

Ellen Carozza LVT

Today Jubilee is 10 days old. "As she grows Benny's care changes, and he will soon begin to teach her how to cat."

Jubilee has reached one milestone after another with her surrogate dad by her side, cheering her on. The little kitten is now eating like a champ and getting bigger and stronger every day.

A woman from Prince Rupert, British Columbia (Canada) woke up to a kitten's cries but couldn't find him until she realized that it was coming from under her house.

Supplied by Kelli

A few days after Kelli moved into her new home in Prince Rupert, she heard a kitten meowing, and it just kept going.

"I could hear a kitten crying but couldn't figure out where it was coming from. I searched high and low in the house until the cries sounded desperate so I went outside and realized he was under the house," Kelli told Love Meow .

She started digging at the front of her house. As she looked under the steps, she saw a tiny ball of fur lying motionless, barely holding on. The kitten was all alone without a mother in sight.

"When I found him I couldn't tell if he was alive. I started to feel panicked once I realized that he wasn't meowing any more. So I brought him straight to the vet. They said he was less than a week old and had been abandoned by his mother."

"Baby Oscar's loud meow was essentially what saved his life," Kelli said. Kelli @oscarandizzy

She named the kitten Oscar.

" I wasn't planning on getting a pet when I moved into my new place but Oscar chose me ," Kelli told Love Meow.

Kelli @oscarandizzy

Kelli had to learn to care for a young kitten from scratch. She used a syringe to feed Oscar at the beginning because the kitten was too tiny and frail to latch onto a bottle. After many sleepless nights, Oscar bounced back and began to thrive. ( Scroll down for video )

"Glad the days of waking up every two hours to feed are over… But I surely miss this mini version of him."

Kelli @oscarandizzy

The tuxedo boy grew by leaps and bounds, and his personality started to shine.

"He is super spunky, likes to act like the man of the house. But when no one is around he still acts like my baby and cuddles up to me," Kelli told Love Meow.

Kelli @oscarandizzy

Oscar curled up under the blanket to snuggle with his human mom.

"He is a mama's boy, only purrs and cuddles with me."

Kelli @oscarandizzy

"The cutest thing he does is reach up for a hug when I get home from work," Kelli told Love Meow.

Kelli @oscarandizzy

When Oscar was eight months old, another rescue kitten from the area was looking for a forever home.

"She was found under another house in Prince Rupert. After meeting Isabelle, I knew she would be the perfect companion for Oscar. She was very timid at first, but as you'll see, she warmed up to Oscar and I in no time."

Kelli @oscarandizzy

Oscar eventually accepted his new sister and took her under his wing.

"They would play together and eventually became snuggle buddies. Now you can catch them running all around the house together," Kelli told Love Meow.

Kelli @oscarandizzy

Oscar is now two years old.

"I can never get enough cuddles from this guy."

Kelli @oscarandizzy

He has blossomed into a handsome tuxedo boy.

"I'll never forget the day I found him abandoned under my house... I am so glad I heard him calling for help and found him just in time... I love him to pieces."

Sthéfanie from Brazil was alerted by her dog when she heard barking coming from the backyard. As she got closer to the fence, she saw a little kitten soaking wet from the rain, shaking like a leaf.

She grabbed the kitten and walked door to door to see if she belonged to someone, but no one claimed her.

Supplied by Júlia Braule

When her friend, Júlia Braule, heard about the kitten's plight, she offered to help. After picking up the kitten, named Luna, she headed back home, knowing that she would have to convince a member of her family to keep the cat.

"My father, like me, loves and always wanted a cat, so he said 'Yes,' but my mother had that stereotype about cats being mean and cold creatures, so she wasn't so thrilled with the idea at the time I brought Luna home," Júlia told Love Meow .

Since the kitten was already there, Júlia's mother reluctantly agreed and gave her daughter two days to find the kitty a new home.

Supplied by Júlia Braule

"The moment Luna arrived, she was purring and exploring the whole house. My dog (Cookie) was scared of her at the beginning, and my mother wasn't happy about it. However, that changed in no time."

While Júlia was searching for a home for Luna, the little tabby girl had a plan of her own.

Supplied by Júlia Braule

The next morning Júlia's mother woke up to the sweetest kisses and purrs from the kitten. For the rest of the day, Luna decided to follow her around the house, play with her, nap on her chest and watch her cook in the kitchen.

"My mother fell in love with Luna so fast and deeply that even I was shocked! By the second day I could feel that she really liked her, and she even started saying that we had five members in our family (me, mother, father, dog and cat)," Júlia told Love Meow.

"So you can say that I did find her a home in two days!"

Supplied by Júlia Braule

Their dog, Cookie, also accepted his new feline sister, and the two became bonded friends.

"Luna was immediately drawn to him, always wanting to play with his tail or fur but Cookie ran from her at first!"

Supplied by Júlia Braule

"It took some time but now they play together and take naps together," Júlia told Love Meow.

"Luna even cries when my father takes Cookie for a walk!"

Supplied by Júlia Braule

Luna loves to offer everyone help when they are working.

Supplied by Júlia Braule

"Most of the day she is all cuddly with us and always by our side but sometimes she has these high energy moments and runs around the entire house."

"Luna loves when my mother is writing something so she can play with her pen and steal her attention," Júlia told Love Meow.

"She has been with us for about two months now."

Supplied by Júlia Braule

The little tabby adores everyone in the house, but the person that she clings to the most is Júlia's mother, who used to say that she would never have cats.

"My mother loves her kitten and is glad that Luna is ours now. She even sends me pictures of her when I'm not home, saying how cute Luna is."
