One-Day-Old Kitten Found at a Trucking Place

Animalkind was brought in a day-old kitten without a mom, found in an tractor engine at a Trucking place in Selkirk. We went to the location to look for other homeless kitties and the mom but none were found alive nor was there a mom in sight. ...Until another very pregnant kitty appeared (LUCY) who was fed by the company's compassionate workers throughout the past year.

It was decided that a truck is not a great place for giving birth-so Lucy came to Animalkind...last minute call! Within hours, the foster mom didn't even arrive yet- 6 kittens were born. 2 had a hard start and would not have made it outdoors. They needed to be resuscitated and warmed with a heating blanket-force fed for a few hours until they perked up and joined the rest of the tiny gang.

Lucy is soo happy to be a mom and is now in her foster home. We are still working with the company to trap/neuter/release other cats who made their home there, so no more kittens will be born in engines and die of lack of care. We will keep you posted on the progress of those sweet hearts and Lucy.
