WATCH: Red Paw's livestream shows kittens rescued from Philly house fire

Some days, the only way to feel human again is to watch a wholly adorable livestream of, what else, kittens. Luckily, the Red Paw Emergency Relief Team has got us covered with their newly minted stream showing a group of kittens recently rescued from a Philly house fire.

WATCH: Red Paw’s livestream shows kittens rescued from Philly house fire

Some days, the only way to feel human again is to watch a wholly adorable livestream of, what else, kittens. Luckily, the Red Paw Emergency Relief Team has got us covered with their newly minted stream showing a group of kittens recently rescued from a Philly house fire.

Mama cat Orea and her brood were displaced when the house they were living in burned down the afternoon April 5, prompting Red Paw to step in with some assistance. The animal org eventually transported the kittens to Penn Vet, where they remained for a night in an oxygen tank. 

Oreo joined her kittens the next day, after they were discharged and brought back to the site of the fire. Red Paw explains: 

Our volunteers returned to the scene to search for Oreo that night, with no luck. Her kittens were discharged the next morning and taken directly to the fire scene to help us search for momma! Well, there was no need to search, she was waiting for us when we arrived, anxious to see her kittens. After only a few minutes of coaxing, Oreo was reunited with her kittens! 

Now, we’ve got plenty of mews to swoon over, and a very unique way to promote the adoption of some of Philly’s cutest creatures. If adoption isn’t your speed, though, feel free to donate over at their official site.
