Shelby, a two-year-old cat, was discovered just before giving birth. In the early days of parenthood, one loving individual happened to see her and fed her.
The kittens were seized and transferred to a local shelter when they began to walk. Purrfect Pals, a group of animal rights activists based in Arlington, Washington, picked them up and quickly transferred them to the care of guardians.
Shelby’s physicians were taken aback when they discovered another litter of kittens in her stomach. The Critter Room’s John, a seasoned foster parent, welcomed mama into his house. Everything was in place for the arrival of the new kids.
Shelby gave birth to four kittens in August, but only one of them, Sparky, was found alive. He did his best to fight. Sparky went to the greatest realms after 4 days, despite the doctors’ best attempts, and without leaving his mother’s arms.
Shelby surprised everyone when she gave birth to her fifth kid on the same day.
It happened in the car when John was taking the cat home from the vet on August 29th. From the first seconds, the unexpected baby began to loudly demand food.
She was named after “tin Lizzie” – a Ford T car.
“Lizzy turned out to be a loud and powerful woman. We were really taken aback by the baby, who had been lying in her mother’s tummy for four days following Sparky’s birth.
Adoptive father Shelby was comfortable, and Lizzie was able to take her mother’s milk, thanks to John’s efforts. The tiny cat family began to develop after suffering through a few trying days.
Shelby held, fed, bathed, and watched after her daughter at all times.
Shelby felt at ease in Lizzie’s presence. The cat rediscovered his sense of purpose in life.
There are never too many hugs!
At 15 days old, Lizzie was eating well and gaining a healthy weight. According to the adoptive father of John, she was small for her age, but “success, although small, is stable.”
Her tiny paws gradually filled with strength. As soon as Shelby called her daughter, she rushed towards her, skipping and crouching with appetite at the milk bar.
Over the next few weeks, Little Lizzie’s character developed.
She climbed up and down every surface she could get her hands on. She was always playing with her mother or volunteers throughout her hours of activity.
Shelby, although a mother-heroine, frolics like a small child and adores the attention of human friends.
Quiet time – it’s time for hugs!
When it came time to adopt, the guardians knew they needed to locate a shared home for mother and daughter since they couldn’t stomach being apart.
Lizzie and Shelby left their foster home on November 17 and began a new chapter in their lives together.
They now have loving owners and two sister cats that are equally as energetic and lovable as they are.
An amazing mommy and her wonderful kitten finally got their home.
Happy and loved.
