While wandering around the schoolyard of Lucero Elementary School in the Bronx, Ezra came across a feline and her three offspring. As a high school student, he couldn’t help but notice the adorable sight.
The mother feline showed great care and concern for her little ones, keeping them safe and warm at all times. To protect them from danger, she kept them close by her side and used an old mat found outside to keep them cozy. As the temperature dropped, Ezra reached out to Little Wanderers NYC for assistance.
Stephanie Tulien, the President of Little Wanderers, shared that although they were already busy with other rescue missions, they couldn’t ignore this particular case. They were aware of an incoming snowstorm, and so Camey and Frank, two of their dedicated volunteers, quickly came forward to assist.
The rescuers used humane traps and waited patiently for almost a day until they were able to save the small family from danger. Their efforts paid off as four lives were spared from a terrible fate. The cat mother, who goes by the name Scarlett, along with her kittens received medical attention for their kitty colds.
Little Wanderers shared a heartwarming update on their Instagram account about the rescue of School Yard Mom and her kittens from a Bronx school yard. They were fortunate enough to find a foster home with Camey, who will help them begin their healing process.
Once they were reunited, Mama Scarlett nestled down with her kittens and protected them while purring contentedly. It was clear that she trusted her humans to care for her little ones. With this peace of mind, Scarlett began to take some time for herself, spending more time with her human companions and savoring her pampered life as a VIP.
Mama Scarlett and two of her kittens, Lenny and Moe, have already found their forever homes. However, the rescue organization is still searching for a loving family for little Cayleigh, just in time for the holiday season. Stephanie expressed gratitude to Little Wanderers for their direct rescue services, which saved the lives of four cats. Their efforts are commendable in the ongoing battle to rescue animals in need.
Thanks to the efforts of the students and rescuers, these adorable felines can now look forward to a cozy festive season with their new families instead of enduring the harsh cold on the streets of New York. It’s heartwarming to see how we can all come together to make a difference.
