New York (CBSNewYork)   They’re too cute.  They’re also some very lucky kitties.

The story of Juno and her kittens began on the streets of Brooklyn in the days following Superstorm Sandy, when this friendly cat was spotted by a woman who decided to feed her.  Within days, the woman noticed that the cat’s belly was growing.  She became concerned and called Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coaltion, which got the kitty off the street.

It turns out, Juno, as she was named, was pregnant.

Long story short, Juno not only gave birth — and fostered an orphaned kitten from Animal Care & Control of New York — but she and her brood ended up being filmed for the Animal Planet show “Too Cute”.

The episode airs on Saturday, October 5 at 9:00 p.m.

1010 WINS’ Anchor Susan Richard got to meet Juno and rescuer Anne Levin from Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition in May at the Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days event in Union Square. Check them out in this edition of All For Animals:
