Rescued Kitten Sisters, Lilo and Nani Go from Shelter to Paradise


Here’s a wonderful update on Lilo and Nani, two rescued sister kittens formerly called Clock and Hickory. The silver tabby kittens and their pretty Mother Goose survived thanks to rescuers Jen the Kitten Agent and Wrenn Rescues in southern California.

Mother Goose and her litter wound up in a shelter and were malnourished and sickly. But thanks to the rescuers, they survived, and Clock and Hickory found a home together. That’s when they became Lilo and Nani, the “Ohana Kittens” named for the sisters in the movie Lilo and Stitch. 

“Ohana means family, and family means nobody gets left behind,” is a quote from the movie. 

The runt of the litter, Clock with her oversized ears and eyes made everyone fall in love with her.

“Look at those little doe eyes 😍”

Lilo and Nani, the Ohana Kittens

As it turned out, Lilo and Nani went from the shelter to paradise, living with a couple who love cats and all things Tiki. They have everything they could ever want, including 10 beds to snuggle in anywhere they like.

Here’s one example of the fabulous Tikis below:

Their new mom had been heartbroken about losing her 19-year-old rescued cat Willow, but six months later, she saw Clock on Instagram and fell in love. Now they have lots of nicknames, like Nani Hickory Honey Ham after another favorite movie, “Christmas with the Kranks.”

Cuddling In the New Year

Here’s Lilo and Nani celebrating their first New Year. As you can see, they are closer than ever, and Lilo still has those amazing cartoonish golden eyes and oversized ears, “criminally cute,” as her mama put it. 

The two sisters still love being big spoon and little spoon, cuddling together.

“Happy New Year from these snuggle babies!”

Lilo also enjoys snuggling up with her mama, getting as cozy as possible. 

“I feel so lucky to have these girls in my life,” she said.

Nani loves to get very comfortable too.

“Nani is feeling right at home these days.”

These two like striking funny poses in all kinds of places.

We’re happy to see that Lilo still looks like a meme waiting to happen.

“Oh mother, I yearn for just one morsel of your lovely smelling popcorn.”

Although Lilo is a lot bigger now, she has remained as unique as ever, and her spotted belly is still irresistible for belly rubs. 

Meanwhile, Lilo and Nani’s siblings and Mother Goose were all finally adopted, shared Kitten Agent Jen.

“This girl is the best and deserves all the love and snuggles! Her new name is Molly and she will be cherished like the perfect queen she is! Love you mama! Have a wonderful life!”
