A street cat walked into a family’s home to have kittens. Her life was changed forever. A tabby cat had been seen wandering around an apartment complex in Seattle, Washington early this year. Over time, she became acquainted with one of the families. One evening she decided to enter their apartment and look for a spot to settle in.
About an hour later, the family was surprised to find a litter of newborn kittens under their table. They reached out to the rescue community in hopes of getting this feline family the help they needed.
Ashley Morrison, an animal rescuer based in Seattle, stepped up to help.
The mother cat was very frightened and used every ounce of energy, trying to escape. It took a few days for Ashley to get her permission to sit in the same room.
Over the next few weeks, the tabby cat slowly came out of her shell. She grew to enjoy head scratches and pets, and would knead up a storm every time she was given a freshly cleaned blanket.
The first time she walked out of her nest (her safe spot) to seek pets and attention, she made it all the way to Ashley’s lap.
With a lot of patience, Moira was finally coming around and learning to enjoy little things in life.
Her tabby kittens grew by leaps and bounds. They became demanding, mischievous little kitties who quickly learned to enjoy lap time with their humans.
The tabby babies have blossomed into playful, rambunctious young cats.
Moira and her kittens are the lucky ones. They are inside, warm, loved and thriving. And Moira will never live outside again.
When the little family was ready for adoption, Ashley knew she wanted to find Moira a nice quiet home where she could feel safe, happy as an indoor cat.
Two months after Mama Moira was rescued, she had her dream come true.
The sweet tabby has moved into her forever loving home. On the first day with her new family, she was already purring and putting her paw on her new mom’s hand.
This is sweet Moira at her forever home! Her kittens have also found their loving homes.
