Bonded cat sisters are so happy to find help for their kittens so they can thrive together.

Sister cats, Maple and Willow, have never been apart and share a lovable bond. When they got to the Purrfect Pals Cat Sanctuary in Washington, they both had kittens and were in need of care.
“They became pregnant by an owner who couldn’t look after them, transferred pregnant to another shelter. They gave birth to eight healthy babies at the shelter that same night and were then brought to us,” Purrfect Pals told Love Meow. “When the kittens were one day old, they went straight to a loving and experienced nursing home.”
Kyndra, a volunteer rescue worker, welcomed her with open arms. She quickly noticed the strong bond between the sisters and how they looked after each other’s kittens from the start.

“They are best friends and so sweet to each other,” shared Kyndra Love Meow. “They raise their babies together and they both do a great job looking after the kittens.”
As soon as Kyndra had created a common space for the two mother cats, they snuggled next to each other, wrapped their arms around their babies and tended to the hungry little mouths in tandem.
The sisters stayed close together with their demanding kittens and formed the cutest tight-knit powder. It was a team effort as they cared for and cared for their babies.
As the kittens got bigger and more independent, the mothers took more breaks as a duo. “But they ran back when one of the babies made a noise,” shared Kyndra.
The two best friends like to sit next to each other at the window and watch the day go by.

“Maple and Willow understand the housekeeping routine and are always waiting at the door for me when it’s wet food time.”
The bound couple do everything together. They keep each other clean, demand food in a perfect duet, and scurry around their room as if they own it.
Here is where Willow teaches the kittens to play:
“The bond between Maple and Willow is very special. Willow is a lot more obsessed with Maple than Maple is with Willow, but they love each other very much,” shared Kyndra Love Meow.
“They deserve a life of fun and games, which is why I’m so happy that these babies will be their last litters.”
The kittens have grown by leaps and bounds thanks to the wonderful care of their foster family and the unconditional love of Mama Maple and Willow.
“Anytime the kittens aren’t running around and playing, I can get six to cuddle near me, with Ash, Oakley, and Sage often on my lap. Meadow, Aspen, and Ivy will be around, and Juniper and Rowan are those Introverts of the group who prefer to be alone, “said Kyndra.

The kittens are around 10 weeks old and have reached many milestones. The cat mothers have taught them all the tricks they have up their sleeves and are ready to spend more time with their best friend.
Maple and Willow start playing with all sorts of fun toys and start acting like kittens again. “They’ll be neutered and adopted together as a bonded couple when they’re ready.”
“I am very happy to see sisters so strongly bonded and to know that they can stay together forever,” said Kyndra.
