A cat was rescued just in time for its kittens to be born in a safe home. One of them was very affectionate and insisted on being her little shadow.
Mélia and Karine, twin sisters and volunteers at the Austin Animal Center, took in a pregnant cat in need of a foster home. “She was so kind. She kept purring and making so many cookies (kneading her paws) even when she was drinking water,” the sisters shared with Love Meow.
Soon after their arrival, the tabby cat Aurora went into labor. Her foster family was with her during the difficult delivery. Five of their kittens survived and began to thrive.
“This is the last time she will have to go through this and I can’t help but wonder what would have happened if she had given birth outside.”
One of the kittens, Simba, quickly stood out from the rest of the litter. He clung very closely to his mother and always vied for her attention. While other kittens dozed in an adorable puff of puff, he got up to be with Mama Aurora, who withdrew in bliss.
The cute tabby boy had many single feeding sessions with mom (when the others were sleeping) and soon became the largest baby in the group.
Aurora was a wonderful, amorous mother to all of her precious kittens, but Simba tried hard to be her most beloved fur child.
He was very connected and kept trying to get his mother to notice him by crawling over her or nibbling her ears.
“She was so patient and took so good care of her babies. She is also the kindest cat and always wants to be petted and loved,” the sisters shared.
Whenever Aurora tried to have some time with me, she found a small shadow behind her. Little Simba insisted on being with his mother instead of snuggling up with his siblings.
A few weeks after their development, the kittens ran around the house as if they owned it. Sweet Simba was never far from his mother.
He spent most of the time next to her, sneaking a snack from time to time while other kitties were too busy to piss each other off, resulting in an uproar.
Aurora adored her kittens, but Simba won over her with his constant tenderness.

As soon as he figured out that he should groom himself, he would wash mom’s face and give her snacks.
When it came time to search for their forever home, a couple from Dallas fell head over heels in love with Simba and Aurora.
They knew they would both have to adopt so that mother and son could stay together forever.
The couple found their dream family together, as did Simba’s siblings, who went to good homes in pairs.
On her first day at home, Simba (renamed Beau) snuggled up to his mother (renamed Serif) after doing a bit of research. In no time at all, the duo claimed all of the chairs in the office and became their most trusted cat overseer.
It’s been a few months since they found their perfect home and Beau caught up with his mother. They keep showering each other with love and licking, and their bond has only grown stronger.
