Five conjoined kittens born at Arizona rescue as veterinarians work to separate them

In Maricopa, Arizona, five kittens were born at Little Whiskers Animal Rescue on April 1, 2021, and it wasn’t an April Fools’ Day joke. The stray mother cat was more than 29 cats and kittens brought into the rescue last week.

According to the rescue’s Facebook page, conjoined births do happen, but rarely do the kittens survive. The kittens shared a placenta and one cord. Two of the kittens had a conjoined body, and the veterinarian was able to separate them, but one of the kittens had to have her leg amputated. The mother cat also gave birth to one more kitten.

“We have a update to give… it’s been a long weekend of ups and downs. Our hearts are beyond crushed to notify that the 2 sweet peas who were still at the vet passed away at the vet hospital. We also lost little foot unexpectedly. He never showed any signs of distress or pain he just let go. His little body was tired we will provide more updates as they come. We never expected this to blow up as big as it did and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Please send babies and mama many positive thoughts and good vibes!,” the rescue posted.

Although the mother is trying to nurse her kittens, extra supplements are also being supplied.

To donate to the care and recovery of these three  surviving very special kittens:
