For over a year, Katie Lanza and her neighbors have been regularly feeding a feral cat around their homes. When the cold weather came and blizzards were on the way they feared for kitty’s safety, who they have now named Lipstick, and they began a search to find her so that they could try and protect her from the severe cold.
After 5 long days they eventually found her, trapped underneath a neighbors porch and when they realized that Lipstick was pregnant, they were determined to bring her in and keep her safe from the cold. It took weeks of love and attention then one night Lipstick walked into Katie’s kitchen, it looked as if Lipstick was ready to let her human friends help her and her unborn babies.
Two weeks later Lipstick gave birth to four adorable kittens, Katies recalls: “Once they were born and Lipstick cleaned them up, we put them in a fresh kitty bed and used a heating pad to help regulate their temperature, she is very, very sweet but very protective. She lets me handle her babies to check their weight and make sure they are nursing but will lightly smack my hand if I have been holding them too long.”
Let’s hope Lipstick decides to stay with Katie, giving her kittens lots of love and affection that they all deserve.
