A kind-hearted person, who was assigned to clean an empty house, stumbled upon Goldie, a mother cat, and her four little ones. The feline family was confined in a laundry basket located in the basement of the house, with no food or water around. Upon discovering the cats, Lori White, a member of the Alliance for Responsible Pet Ownership (ARPO) in Indiana, was contacted to help. Unfortunately, it is unclear how long the cats were stuck in the house as the property was locked with a lockbox.

Lori White stumbled upon a litter of four precious kittens with their mother in a laundry basket in the basement of an abandoned house. It was evident that the feline family was in desperate need of assistance and a safe place to raise their young. Without hesitation, Lori brought them into her home where she could provide food and shelter for the mother cat. Though the tabby was malnourished and starving, she was ecstatic to have a clean environment and plentiful food to nourish her babies. After filling her belly to the brim, she carefully inspected her new surroundings before settling in to feed her four adorable kittens. Lori continued to search for a rescue center that would accept the furry family, determined to find them the best possible care.

Upon arrival, the friendly tabby cat immediately explored her new surroundings. Her adorable snack time call to her kittens filled the room with purrs and suckling sounds, creating a heartwarming moment captured in the cute video linked below featuring Goldie the cat and her kittens. Lori was pleasantly surprised to find out that all four kittens were female orange tabbies. In homage to the beloved characters from the show The Golden Girls, Lori named the kittens Rose, Sophia, Dorothy, and Blanche, while their mother became known as Goldie. Lori also pointed out that the rarity of having four female ginger cats is quite uncommon, as only about 20% of gingers are female, making this little feline family even more special.
