ANIMALCARE SHELTER FOR KENT COUNTY: Darlene
Like any mother, Darlene is very protective of her babies—even the ones that aren’t hers.
When this long-hair calico came to ACSCK in late May, she was very unhappy; so much so that she would swat at the staff. But it seemed that this was more than just a cat with a cranky attitude. After some investigating, it was discovered that Darlene had been separated from her two kittens. Once they were reunited, she was a whole new cat! Mom just wanted her babies back.
While Darlene continued to nurse her kittens, three new ones were rescued and brought to the Shelter. They were too young to eat on their own and were without a mother. The staff was ready to bottle feed them, but then thought Darlene may be willing to step in. The orphans were introduced to Darlene, and she took to them immediately! Darlene would go on to be a surrogate mother to three additional kittens from two separate litters over the next two months.
Now, Momma wants a break. Darlene is looking for a home that will give her all the pets she wants and feed her many chicken-flavored Temptations treats. At 5-years-old, and after 11 kids, Darlene still plays like a kitten herself! She loves to paw at balls, and when she’s done, she will rub up all over your ankles.
