When sunflower, a stray cat, realized she was pregnant, she began looking for help to feed her future babies.

She approached and waited in front of the entrance as if she felt that good souls would be ready to take care of her and her little children here in the house.

A big heart in which there was still room
As a twist of fate, Kara got a call from the shelter a week later. Two orphaned kittens whose lives hung in the balance urgently needed a mother.
