An animal shelter in Arizona needed an extra hand in caring for some newborn kittens. Kittens that become separated from their mothers at an early age have a very low rate of survival unless someone steps in to care for them. It takes a lot to increase the rate of survival. Instead of enlisting some volunteers, the shelter decided to seek help from a senior care facility. Two kittens, Peaches and Turtle, received exactly the kind of attention they needed to thrive and grow. Catalina Springs Memory Care teamed up with Pima Animal Care Center to develop a program that allows elderly patients to nurse kittens back to health. Check out this adorable and heartwarming story.
