Several months ago a beautiful stray cat was spotted on Montreal streets looking for food not only for herself, but also for her kittens. Fortunately, kind-hearted people stepped in.

A stray kitty with a thick, beautiful grey coat showed up at a Montreal home hoping to find food. She was clearly starving, and the homeowners wanted to help her. The situation was even more urgent because the weather was getting worse.

Nadia, a volunteer based in the Quebec metropolis, was informed of this and immediately headed to the rescue site to pick up the cat. When she arrived, she realized that the cat was not alone – the kitty had brought her two kittens. They were the ones she was desperately trying to feed.

The local association Chatons Orphelins Montréal stepped in and placed the three felines with a foster family. The mother cat was named Melbie, while her kittens were named Lio (the female) and Loupix (the male).

At her new home Melbie "was a bit unsure at first (having lived outside for so long), but her curiosity won each time," Chatons Orphelins Montréal said. She became more confident and started to play a little more every day.

The mama cat and her kittens adapted perfectly to their new environment, enjoying the safety and comfort of their new home.

Melbie was a very affectionate creature and discovered the joys of life as an indoor cat, including endless play sessions with toys. She also developed a habit of sitting by the window to watch the neighbors.

Melbie was also adopted a little later, but her stay with her new owners was cut short due to family problems. Now back at Chatons Orphelins Montréal, she has not lost her zest for life.

"She chirps and coos for attention and loves to be brushed every day. She is still a kitten at heart," the shelter staff shares. May Melbie find a loving family as soon as possible!
