Kittens swept away in nor'easter floodwaters looking for forever homes
The five furry siblings lost their mother in the floodwaters, but now they are recovering and looking for loving families.

CLIFTON, New Jersey -- A good Samaritan in New Jersey came to the rescue of a family of kittens swept away in the floodwaters from this week's nor'easter.

Sadly their mother and one sibling were lost in the flood, but five surviving siblings were waterlogged and so hypothermic that doctors couldn't even get a temperature.

Staff at Veterinary Emergency Group warmed the kittens and they all rallied and are now warm and dry.

They are learning how to drink from a bottle, eat solid food and use a litterbox.

Now the five furry siblings are ready to find their forever homes.

The kittens are just three weeks old so they still need some time before they can go home with a new family, but it should be right after Thanksgiving.
