One day, Kathy, a Montrealer in Canada, noticed what sounded likе creaking noises coming from the rear of her home. She searched and discovered two kittens, one gray and the other black.
They were concealed in the bushes behind one another, and only a sharp, uncontrolled squeak could be heard. The kittens appeared to have been аbаndоnеd by their mother since they were very bony and frigid to the touch.
They looked likе they were three weeks old. Katie decided not to touch them for now, in the hope of identifying the mother cat as well.
But hours passed, and no one came for the kids, besides, it was damp and cloudy outside, so the girl took the kittens to her home, and later handed them over to the animal rights activists Chatons Orphelins Montréal , whom she called in the process.
“When we took them in, they were exhausted and suffered from dehydration, the girl (black) was especially bad, she was literally shaking from the cold, and she weighed half as much as her brother,” says animal activist Selin Krom.
The volunteers immediately began to feed the kids and were happy to find that they did not refuse food – on the contrary, they pounced on the treat with great appetite, and when they were full, warmed up and dozed off.
Erika, an activist, took the kittens in. She fed and cared for the kids for two weeks, during which time they both grew larger, rounded out, and spent much of their time playing.
They had started eating solid food at the age of five weeks, dazzling their parents with a beautiful, robust appearance and copious amounts of fluff. Their fur grew longer and thicker every day.
The black girl is still smaller than her brother and still shy. The gray boy is more mobile and inquisitive. They sleep in an embrace and walk shoulder to shoulder, exploring all the unfamiliar nooks and crannies in Erica’s house.
The woman named the kittens by the Russian names Tossia and Yuri (Tossia and Yuri) – probably their appearance reminded her of a Siberian cat.
At the age of 10 weeks, the kittens have grown noticeably and began to behave independently – it’s time to place them in good hands. But Erica got so used to having two fluffy balls in her house that she kept them permanently!
