An army sergeant rescued a pregnant stray cat who had been hanging around the base where she was deployed and she and several others helped nurse the pregnant cat back to health. The mom regained her strength in time to give birth to four kittens. Unfortunately, one of the kittens did not survive, but Sgt. Hetty continued to care for the mom and the remaining three kittens, Now Sgt. Hetty is working with Paws of War, a nonprofit that assists active and retired military members with animal causes, to try and bring the family home with her.

Today’s video of two cats at a koi pond made me wonder what went through each species’ head. At one point, it looks like one of the cats and a koi are touching noses!

Have a great weekend!

3 Comments on Mews and Nips: Army Sergeant Hopes to Bring Rescued Stray and Her Kittens Home

  1. Glad to learn about this heroic effort and more of the story in People. Just donated and hope more people help out this worthwhile effort (and more of the charity’s work).

  2. What a wholesome story all around. I hadn’t heard of Paws of War until this article. I really, really hope everything works out for Sgt. Hetty and the crew arrives safe and sound to their forever home with her. I am unable to help financially but I’m sharing on the platforms I use. Sharing is a big way to help, it does a lot so please don’t feel bad if you can’t donate. Spread the word and know it helps a lot!

  3. I love the idea of Paws of War. I would have been one of them to fall in love with a cat too and want to bring it back home with me. The video of the cats watching the fish is really cute.
