Jon Knight, Jolie’s rescuer, thought that she was meowing to call out to her kittens, but then he slowly realized that she was calling to him to follow her. Apparently, Jolie knew that her kittens needed extra care in order to survive, and he was just the man to do it.
I began to follow her and she took me through the rear garden, across a ploughed field and into a farm yard. All the time she was calling me and waiting for me to follow.
After the journey, Knight was eventually led to a stack of wood inside an abandoned barn, where the litter was wearily resting.
There is absolutely no way I would have found these kittens without this cat’s help. She was a huge distance away from the garden she had first been found in, and was clearly doing all she could to lead me to her kittens.
The four kittens, all severely dehydrated, were successfully saved and recuperated at the RSPCA Block Fen Animal Centre. They will remain there until they’re healthy and ready to be adopted.
Just another amazing story of animal mothers risking their lives to save their own.
