In Canada, a family was visited by a cat they thought was a stray. The kitty was extremely grateful for a meal and started visiting the family every day. Each time she would stand at the front door, meowing and circling to signal her presence and demand a meal.

Later the couple learned that the cat belonged to the neighbors across the street, who didn't seem to really care for the kitty. In the cold weather, they didn't even try to shelter her. The couple, on the other hand, was kind to the cat.

One day the cat disappeared. The couple was afraid that the reason for the cat's absence was illness or injury. However, it turned out that the cat joined a colony of feral cats and eventually got pregnant. Unfortunately, she lost all her kittens. After a long absence, she returned to the family that fed her.

This time she was in particularly bad shape; she had infections and injuries, and was pregnant again. She needed care, and that's when Ontario-based Tiny But Mighty Kitten Rescue and its founder Melissa were contacted.

Thanks to them the cat named Hazel received all the treatment she needed and then placed in a foster home.

Hazel was happy to enjoy the comfort and security of her new home. A few weeks later, she gave birth to 6 beautiful kittens. She was a caring mom who was purring continuously as she groomed and nursed her babies.

"Hazel is the best mom and one of the sweetest cats I've ever met!", Melissa recalls.

The kittens grew up and started to reveal their personalities. Maci, a female tabby, came first in the litter; she tried to run before she could even walk. Her brother Conner, however, beat her to the punch in a very specific area, as he was the first to try solid food.

"They are fearless and ready to explore," said the founder of Tiny But Mighty Kitten Rescue, who expressed her happiness that Hazel "didn't have to give birth outside on the street in the snow or rain." She will be spayed and never have to get pregnant again.

As her kittens had grown up and become independent, they were all adopted and joined their new families. Hazel, too, has found a loving forever home.
