Calico cat, less than a year old, stray in the area of Pelletier, Longueuil, since the beginning of July.
Here’s her story (translated from French) :
After having fed a cat a few times, who had come to my verandah, she came to me last Friday, August 20th with a kitten in her mouth, while I was swinging in my backyard. She wanted to enter the house, so I opened the door and she went to place her kitten in a wardrobe in the basement. My husband gave me a box, we placed a towel inside, and placed the kitten in the box. She fed it and then left 5 minutes later. Surprised, we of course thought that she would go and bring a second! Well yes, and she made the trip back and forth 5 times. So here we are, parents of a family of cats that we can not keep.
- 1 Calico of a little over six months
- 4 orange and white kittens
- 1 tabby and white kitten
I’ll look after them until they are weaned, but I need your help to find them a good, safe home
Note: This cat brought me what she held most precious, her kittens, she wanted me to help and trusted me completely! I would really like to succeed in saving them all!
UPDATE – SEPT 30TH : This story has almost resolved in the way hoped, the kittens have all found homes, but there is still the question of the young mother cat who is in need of a place. I truly hope someone can offer her a loving home!
I’ve received some updated pictures of the mother cat. She’s very pretty, and we can see she’s barely reached adulthood herself! Of course she needs to be spayed, but Huguette has done everything she can to help. She gave this cat safe haven while she raised her babies, and has found homes for them, but she really needs some help at this point to find a home for the mother. I thought to run a campaign to fund her spay operation, but time is short, and she would need a new foster home in the meantime. If anyone would like to help out I would love to see this story truly end well!
UPDATE – OCTOBER 2ND – An ideal ending! The couple who came to adopt the last kitten have adopted the mother too. Apparently they’re in good hands, starting with a vet visit today to check up and vaccinate. Bravo to Huguette, and wishing a happy new beginning to mum and baby.
