Her mother and siblings were all given to good homes after that, but MJ stayed on to become Saldia's first cat. Before her he had only had "sugar gliders," little possum-like marsupials.

Critically Endangered Sawfish Fillets As “Shark Meat” In Brazil!

Mama Cat And Her Litter Of Kittens . . . And Ducklings

Back in May a small holding (little farm) in the town of Clara, in County Offaly, Ireland was home to something of a miracle. The cat took on the responsibility of three orphans in addition to her own litter of three kittens. Word got out about her act of motherly kindness and the world began to marvel over her.
