Numerous rescue organizations have successfully placed many kittens in new homes, and Queenie, a brave cat, is among them. The expecting cat was taken in by The Exploits Valley SPCA. Following several examinations, it was established that she was approximately two years old and had already given birth to multiple litters.
The sanctuary communicated through social networks, stating:
“Prior to her arrival at the shelter, information indicated that she had previously delivered multiple large litters. Fortunately, this will be the last time she undergoes the birthing process.”
Shortly after their arrival, Queenie gave birth to eight beautiful kittens who received the devoted care of their courageous mother and the shelter staff.
“Everyone she encounters, she adores.” “She has instilled in all her kittens a love for people,” the shelter noted.
Fortunately, the kittens thrived, growing healthy and strong. One by one, they found the loving homes they desperately needed.
However, as time went by, the sweet cat remained without a home. The shelter had a statement to make.
“Queenie has raised eight healthy, plump, happy kittens, and now she’s ready to be someone’s baby.” Her stay had been prolonged: she waited through pregnancy, raised the kittens for eight weeks, and still awaited adoption.
By December, Queenie held the record for the longest stay in the shelter. Six months had passed since her rescue, and despite her children finding loving homes, she still awaited the opportunity to become a cherished member of a family.
However, the fortunes changed for this beautiful cat when Allison Crowe, who had adopted one of Queenie’s kittens a few months earlier, was deeply moved upon reading the shelter’s post about her being the longest-standing resident.
Having lost her own cat and wanting to give Luna, one of Queenie’s offspring, a chance, Allison decided not to wait and adopted the mother.
“I saw on the Exploits Valley SPCA’s Facebook page that Luna’s mother was their longest-standing resident who hadn’t been adopted. Knowing that Luna’s mother was alone and all her babies were gone, I decided my heart couldn’t endure any more pain,” Allison shared.
He hurried back to the shelter on the very day he saw the advertisement and adopted Queenie. She was overjoyed to spend the remaining days of her life in a loving home with one of her offspring.
Despite the challenges, the beautiful cat left the shelter after nearly six months of waiting. Presently, she spends her days resting in the arms of her new favorite person and exploring every corner of her new home.
The shelter shared the joyous news in a newspaper:
“In a peculiar twist of fate, Mama Queenie and one of her kittens found a home four months later. Thanks to Allison, our long-awaiting lady, Queenie, was adopted just in time for Christmas and spent the holidays with one of her offspring.
Now named Juno, Queenie relishes her new life with Luna and Linkers, her canine companions. The trio forms a heartwarming bond, filling their adoptive mother’s life with love and joy.
Allison is delighted to have given a chance to such a lovely kitty who simply wanted to be part of a family.
“Queen Juno is doing an amazing job of uniting us. We’re absolutely smitten with this beautiful little lady,” Allison expressed.
