This story was written by Angela Sy, an employee at Holmes&Marchant, a packaging agency in Shanghai.
“We have lots of office pets, almost all of them rescues! I share their transformation story and hopefully show that anyone can make a difference in an animal’s life,” Angela shared.
Recently, Angela shared a story on Bored Panda with the title “My colleague brought a pregnant stray cat into our office, now the family of nine has their own meeting room.”
According to her post, her colleague Yvonne was on the way to work when she met a heavily pregnant stray cat. The stray was thin and looked very young.
She sat outside the office building and meowed at people who passed by or walked in. “It’s like she was asking for help for her babies and herself,” Yvonne said.“
Despite being a stray cat, she was warm and sweet. She was so friendly that she immediately rubbed her face on anyone who gave her attention.
Luckily, Angela’s company had some cat owners who could give the pregnant mama some TLC to get her ready for her delivery date.
“We took her to our office and called her Boba because she was so round!”
“We placed her in a spare meeting room, where we prepared her a litter box, cushy bedding, and all the food (dry, canned tuna, fresh fish, milk) she could want.”
“Boba in our office, waiting to deliver her babies. She was very friendly to everyone and seemed content that she had a safe place to give birth.”
“There was a storm one night. When we came to work the next day, we found D-Day had arrived! Boba gave birth to eight kittens.”
Newborn kittens: four boys and four girls!
Boba was exhausted but tried to feed and clean her babies.
The young mom Boba was so responsible and amazing!
“The babies were all small and we couldn’t tell them apart at first”
There were two gingers, one calico, and five tabbies
“This is 奶盖 or Milk Topping! She was one of the roundest and drank the most milk.”
This is 珍珠 or Pearl”
After two weeks, all kittens slowly opened their eyes!
This is 去冰 (No Ice), one of the smallest in the litter but also one of the sweetest
This is 仙草 or Grass Jelly, the biggest of the bunch!
Here are the two gingers Pudding and Milk Topping
This is Oolong, the tabby/tuxedo
The full gang! At three weeks old, all of them had their eyes open and were so soft and round
At three weeks, they started to eat on their own
They loved snuggling and cuddling with mama
At four weeks, they learned to use the litter box!
They loved lying on their fuzzy bedding
At one month old, the kitties still loved to cuddle with each other
Some of them getting quite sassy, meet 黑糖 or Black Sugar!
This is 燕麦 or Oat, one of the energetic and silly ones
Eight babies all cuddly
“When the kitties hit one month, we moved them to a bigger meeting room so they could all move freely”
“One big family! Our officemates come to this room to visit the kitties or try to get some work done, no matter how impossible it is!”
“Boba still being such a good mom. We are going to spay Boba and find great adopters for all the little ones. We hope someone adopts Boba together with one of her babies. For now, they are still enjoying their new little family, and everyone in the office is so lucky!”
