Earlier this year, a litter of five kittens was taken to Meow Parlour, an animal rescue and cat café in New York City. The goal was to give them a better life. Christina Ha, one of the founders of the establishment, took them in and provided round-the-clock bottle-feeding for the kittens. In foster care, they thrived. Socializing the kittens fell to Molly, a volunteer for the rescue organization. As a teacher, Molly’s 5th grade students became very involved in the process, assisting with naming the kittens. After much discussion, they decided on the names Kanta, Mei, Totoro, Satsuki, and Kiki, inspired by characters from a Japanese anime film company. The kittens have grown into strong lap cats who are eager to share their love with their new families.
As soon as the kittens caught sight of Molly’s lap, they all rushed towards her at once, eager to snuggle up and purr contentedly. Molly quickly realized that by sitting down on the ground, she could easily be engulfed by a swarm of adorable kittens seeking love and attention.
According to Molly, these cats were friendly and loved being around people. Whenever she returned home from school, she would sit on the floor and all five of them would gather around her, which became a source of amusement as they got older. The kittens quickly got used to this routine and would eagerly anticipate their next lap session.
Molly’s legs were often covered with the liquid-like bodies of the playful kittens who would wrap their arms around her without any hesitation. These little felines grew up to become the most adorable lap cats and cuddlers. Whenever Molly wasn’t available, they would take over the enormous bed and fill the room with their loud purrs. And if Molly picked up a broom to clean the room, the kittens would come running in a group to assist her.
After helping their owner with tasks, the group of five furry friends would happily crawl onto Molly’s lap for some snuggle time. They enjoyed spending their downtime resting with their beloved human. In her essay, Molly noted that Kiki often sat with a dignified and refined air, and was always content when in her company.
Mei had always been the smallest one, and in order to gain just two pounds, she became fixated on eating and sleeping. Now, she’s a playful and chubby companion who loves spending time with her siblings.
Satsuki is a true affectionate soul who will contort herself into any position to cuddle with her human. When you stroke her soft belly, she’ll roll onto her back and start purring contentedly.
Kanta, a furry little friend, loves to lean on his human companion and shoes in a relaxed manner. Meanwhile, Totoro is a brave explorer who enjoys touching your cheeks with her wet nose. Molly has made arrangements to find these five adorable pets loving homes where they can always have a buddy to play and cuddle with once they are ready for adoption.
In a jiffy, Satsuki and Mei stumbled upon their dream home in each other’s company. Molly expressed her relief, stating that although the five cats are all close pals, these two have a special bond that assures they will always have one another.
