Isabella, a petite tabby feline, possesses an extraordinary capacity for love. She shares her modest dwelling in New York with two other cats, both coincidentally giving birth to litters at roughly the same time. Unfortunately, two of these mother cats were unable to nurse their offspring, thrusting Isabella into the role of caring for a total of 14 kittens in need of special attention.


The owner of these cats displayed gross negligence by allowing unsterilized cats to roam freely, leading to the unexpected situation of three cats and a litter of kittens in the household. Swiftly realizing the gravity of the situation, he took action by sending Isabella and her 14 kittens to an animal shelter. However, city animal shelters aren’t ideal for young kittens, with a significant risk of euthanasia due to resource constraints. Fortunately, the Best Friends Animal Society intervened and welcomed Isabella and her kittens, ensuring their safety.


At first glance, Isabella’s petite size took everyone aback, almost resembling that of a kitten herself. She appeared profoundly fatigued, parched, and utterly drained from her relentless care for 14 kittens, whom she never once abandoned. The organizers at Best Friends Animal Society shelter noted that despite her weariness, Isabella displayed a warm and loving demeanor, even contentedly purring when showered with affection.

Despite the enormous responsibility she shouldered, Isabella managed to keep all her kittens in good health and well-groomed. After being moved to a private shelter, kind volunteers stepped in to assist with caring for her babies. The feline mother is also receiving treatment for dehydration, which is a positive development. The decision was made to separate four larger kittens from the group, who were likely related to Isabella and old enough to feed on their own. Two more kittens found loving homes with our “orphanage” volunteers, leaving Isabella with eight little ones to look after.


The shelter staff still vividly recalls Isabella’s arrival, surrounded by 14 tiny, always-hungry kittens. She looked like a weary mother in dire need of rest, an image that will forever stay etched in their memories.
