Rescuers Save S’mores the Kitten and Siblings After Fireworks Frighten Away Their Mama

The cutest kitten, S’mores, has a swirl of what looks like a lightly toasted marshmallow on her face. Her light blue eyes are rescuers say she’s a “typical siamese diva who loves to be admired and loved on.”

Although this cutie lives a great life now, S’mores and her siblings had a traumatic start to life. Volunteer rescuers from Southern California at CAAT friends shared the story of S’mores, her sister Apple, and brothers Delta and Houdini in early August.

The Kittens Lost Their Mother Due to Fireworks

As we’ve shared before, 4th of July celebrations can be a distressing time for many animals. Reports of lost pets tend to be at their highest on that day as they try to hide. During the fireworks in 2022, S’mores’ mother ran away, and someone found the abandoned kittens.

The kittens were about 9 weeks old, but S’mores was small for her age.

“S’mores is very dainty. She’s very tiny for being 9 weeks old as she was once the runt but has started to gain more weight,” the rescuers shared on Facebook.

Although tiny, S’mores was “packin’ on the weight,” a playful and active kitten. As a little diva, her favorite thing was to “find a pile of bedding, and make herself a little throne area to look at those around her,” they said.

A Firecracker Sister

S’more’s sister is Apple, a “wild child” calico. She closely bonded with S’mores; as such, they hoped to adopt the kittens together when they were ready. As a kitten rescued due to fireworks, they had a funny way to describe her purrsonality:

“This beauty is Apple! She’s the wild child sister of S’mores! This girl is a firecracker! She’s got playful energy for dayssss. She is fearless and loves playing with her siblings and toys.”

Next, the kitten’s brother Delta is a “total love bug” and “mini teddy bear” who loves affection.

Meanwhile, brother Houdini is a cuddly house panther who lost part of his tail, but it didn’t bother him and added to his character.

“It just adds to the more cute look of this tiny house panther,” they shared.

S’mores and Apple’s First Adoption

It looked like S’mores and Apple were ready to go home in late August. Unfortunately, the adoption fell through when work schedules interfered. Following the pandemic, this has been a common situation for shelters nationwide as people return to work and find they have less time at home.

“Sadly the adoption for Apple and Smores fell through because they didn’t feel they could give the kitties enough time with their new work schedule , so they are now back up for adoption,” CAAT Friends shared.

At 10 weeks old, S’mores is growing up, and the rescuers were sure she and Apple would find the right home together. They will generally be better adjusted, happier, and healthier by going home in pairs or to homes with other cats or kittens.

Kittens and even some adult cats kept solitary can develop what’s called Tarzan Syndrome. Then, they can be aggressive to other cats, anxious, and lonely. By bonding with a furry friend, they can learn “how to cat,” and develop important social skills.

Thankfully, S’mores found a home where she would have friends to play with. And somebody will be very lucky to bring home Apple, Delta, Houdini, as with so many other cute foster kittens cat cats.

Unfortunately, there are always more kittens requiring rescue. Thanks to TNR efforts to trap, neuter, and release cats, rescuers everywhere hope there will be a day when cats and their kittens won’t suffer. You can help support their efforts in many ways.

Those in the Pacific Palisades area can find out more about CAAT friends’ kittens and cats, adoptions, donations, and fostering on Facebook and Instagram. CAAT Friends’ Executive Director Jee Berglund says the rescue started after friends came together to save a group of kittens dumped at a shelter. From there, it grew into a nonprofit organization that helps from 500-1000 cats each year.
