Early September, Good Samaritans from Ontario, Canada noticed a 4-week-old tabby outdoors by herself. Her mom cat and siblings have been nowhere to be discovered, so the type folks reached out to their native rescue for help.

The kitten was in determined want of heat, meals and round the clock care. When Karly and Katelyn Saltarski, sisters and co-founders of Salty Animal Rescue, have been contacted, they took the tabby in with open arms.

The kitten whom they named Martha (aka Marty) was instantly positioned in a foster dwelling, whereas they continued to search for the cat mother and different kittens.

Marty was syringe-fed each few hours every day till she was prepared to start out weaning. She shortly swooned everybody she got here throughout, and had her foster dad wrapped round her tiny paw.

The rescue hoped to introduce Marty to a nursing cat and her kittens for socialization, as soon as the tabby was wholesome, however little did they know that Marty had a plan of her personal.

“This little girl is the funniest little potato. She rarely complains and loves to play,” the rescue shared. “She finally figured out how to eat on her own and is currently mastering the litter box.”

When Flay the cat mother met the tabby, she instantly began mothering her. “She flopped right down wanting to feed her. Surprisingly, she was more than happy to take on another baby,” the rescue wrote.

Hoping that Marty would ultimately change her thoughts, they determined to deliver her to Flay and her litter for visits and playtime.

Marty’s little squeaky meows caught the eye of the resident canine, Nood, who’s also called the skilled kitten cuddler. She got here to greet the little singleton — it was then every little thing simply made sense.

“We think the main reason Marty isn’t so enthusiastic about interacting with Flay and her kittens, is because according to her, she’s already found her temporary family!”

The little fluff ball took to Nood immediately and nuzzled into her heat stomach. The candy canine was over the moon to have one other kitten to take care of.

“Marty now sees our resident dog, Mama Nood, as well as my two other dogs, as her foster family,” the rescue shared.

“She immediately bonded with Nood. It may be that little Marty prefers to be raised by wolves, than those of her own kind,” the rescue added.

“We can’t complain because these guys make the cutest, sweetest little foster family, and Marty could not be happier.”
