Pregnant and alone, Cider discovered a good Samaritan.
The family that found Cider didn’t realize that she was pregnant when they started to feed her. They just knew she was social, hungry and seemingly homeless. They took good care of the beautiful mix – a Brown Mackerel Tabby and White Maine Coon cat – but needed to keep her outside since they already had their own indoor cats.
Cider surprised them by giving birth to Coco, the image of her mother, and Winter, a handsome White Maine Coon with a whisper of blue atop his head.
The family continued to care for Cider as she raised her newborns and when they were weaned and ready for homes of their own, they brought the three cats to the Animal Care Facility.
The three cats form a nice family unit and look out for each other. Cider and Winter are especially protective of Coco, the shy one.
Cider is a gentle and regal girl who shows her appreciation with a gentle purr. She would do best in a quieter home where she would get lots of attention.
Winter and Coco are both sweet and playful. Winter gains more confidence every day and is learning to love interacting with people. Coco loves being petted, but you have to initiate the session, taking it slowly so as not to startle her.
Both kittens need an adopter who is cat savvy and willing to continue their socialization. This is especially true for Coco who we would like to see in a foster home first until she gains confidence in herself and is more trusting of people.
