A little cat was living as a stray Québec, Canada and was doing her best to keep herself safe and sound despite lacking all the love and security every cat deserves.
The little stray wasn’t completely alone, as she was living together with a pack of fellow strays, but life was never easy for any of them.
And when she found that she would soon not just be responsible for her own life, everything changed.
Lisianne was hanging out in her yard one day when she suddenly spotted a little black cat wandering past.
She quickly realized that the cat was a stray and as the furry little girl seemed to be quite hungry, she decided to put out some food and water for her.
Soon, Lisianne and the stray started to develop a relationship.
Lisianne gave the stray the name Usagi, and began regularly putting food and water out for the cat.
Usagi appreciated the gesture and though she was wary of people, she slowly began trusting Lisianne.
After a while, Lisianne noticed that Usagi’s belly was beginning to grow.
Though Usagi was definitely eating better now that she had Lisianne in her corner, Lisianne quickly realized that something else was behind Usagi’s rapidly growing belly.
And she was right. Eventually, Usagi gave birth to a litter of kitten.
While tending to her new babies, Usagi kept coming back to enjoy support from Lisianne, but she was hesitant to introduce her new family.
Eventually though, she realized she couldn’t keep them safe all on her own. And so, one day, she brought her kittens, one after the other, to Lisianne’s doorstep.
All in all there were six kittens, and Lisianne could tell they were in serious need of help.
The kittens were six weeks old and Lisianne decided to contact Chatons Orphelins Montréal for help.
A few of the kittens were found to be suffering from conjunctivitis and they also had difficulty breathing, but since Usagi did the right thing and asked for help, a vet was able to give the kittens the treatment they needed.
Lisianne decided to adopt Usagi, and one of Lisianne’s friends adopted one of the kittens.
The remaining five kittens were taken in by the shelter, who vowed to find them their perfect forever home.
Just goes to show that we can all need a little help in life, and that a mother will always do what’s best for her babies.
