Kittens Dubbed The Seven Dwarves Looking Forward To A “Furry Tail” Ending!

Once upon a time…September 10th, 2018 to be exact, seven little kittens were rescued from life on the streets.

The babies were brought to Chicago Care and Animal Control (CACC). They were found as abandoned strays within the 5000 block of S. Paulina Street.

The litter had been tucked under the steps of someone’s home, and searches for a mother cat had been unsuccessful.

With no parents in sight, the neonates were in desperate need of saving. They were estimated to be only a month old. 

Being so young, they would require around-the-clock care from experienced fosterers immediately.

CARF: The Critical Animal Relief Foundation, pulled the “gaggle” of kittens from death’s door on September 15th.

They began calling them “The Seven Dwarves”.

All 7 kittens needed to be bottle fed, stimulated to use the bathroom and cleaned after feedings.

That’s quite an undertaking to expect one person to handle!

Happily, two experienced fosters stepped up and the kittens were divided into the foster homes. Three babies went to one and four to the other.

This way they still had siblings to grow with.

Living on the streets for any unknown amount of time can be very dangerous to young kittens.

The dwarves were all malnourished, dehydrated and infested with fleas when they had been found.

A warning went out that they may come down with unknown medical issues. Many times, viruses and infections have an incubation period so the fur-babies were kept away from other felines.

Being at animal control can also introduce them to unknown sicknesses, putting their lives in danger further.

The reality of kitten rescue can be heartbreaking.

For one of the tiniest souls, their difficult journey ended on Sunday morning.

CARF shared the sad news on their Facebook page but assured everyone the remaining 6 kittens were doing well.

After a week in foster care with their new stories playing out, the felines were finally acting like healthy, happy kittens.

The safety of their temporary homes was allowing their purrsonalities shine.

Foster parents shared adorable photos of their charges with the CARF page.

Dedicated supporters of the organization sent much needed donations for the siblings.

Eventually the babes will all be up for adoption through CARF’s website.

  1. I am so glad the kittens were rescued, and pray they will all be adopted into loving homes though it is heartbreaking that one of the kittens did not make it. I am so glad the remaining six are all doing well.

  2. Seven babies is a lot for a Mama cat to care for let alone a foster caregiver. I once was asked to foster eight from one litter and I thought it might be too much but I did try. Once I realized the difficulty I enlisted another fosterer to take four of the little sweeties. When they are so young plus having all of the issues these kitties had unfortunately the chance of losing any does increase. May the rest of the dwarves stay healthy and soon find their furever homes.
