After making an unexpected human friend, Usagi the cat learned some friendships bloom at the exact right moment. And from these moments of meeting, an everlasting bond of love can grow.

As a savvy stray cat, Usagi knew her way around the streets of Montreal. The black cat belonged to a feral colony, but the day she met Lisianne and the kind woman offered her some food, the fluffy feline realized she’d found a buddy who’d keep her belly full. Lisianne was happy to provide all the food the hungry cat desired and, before long, Usagi was coming every day.

Usagi thrived under Lisianne’s friendship and she soon noticed how chubby her cat friend had grown. Lisianne suspected Usagi carried a secret. She couldn’t confirm the feral cat’s pregnancy though; Usagi was still a wild cat at heart. Their friendship might be solid, but it was still one carried on at arm’s length. When Usagi turned up suddenly slim, Lisianne knew the kittens had arrived. But she had no idea where they could be. She tried harder and harder to get close to her shy buddy in hopes of finding them.

It seemed her hard work paid off when, out of the blue, Usagi carried a kitten to Lisianne’s backdoor. She then brought a second kitten and followed with a third, continuing until 6 kittens sat at the surprised human’s feet! Without another thought, Lisianne welcomed the whole family inside and settled them into a room where they could be safe together. She then reached out to Chatons Orphelins Montréal for help with her seven furry friends.

In the litter of six, five of the kittens looked just like their mama, all fluffy and black, while just one kitty wore fur of gray tabby. A friend of Lissianne’s quickly adopted the tabby kitten. The Usagi look-alikes were taken in by Chatons Orphelins.

Celine Crom of COM told Love Meow, “The five are all gorgeous long-haired black cats — three girls (Taylor, Tynie and Tyana) and two boys (Tales and Tito).”

“They were a bit shy at first but once they arrived at their foster home, they quickly came out of their shells.”

The kittens were suffering from mild respiratory issues and little Tito was born with a leg deformity, but otherwise, Usagi’s litter proved to be strong like their mother. They’ll soon be headed out for their forever homes. All thanks to an unexpected friendship between a “good fairy” and a feral cat with a heart made for love.

As for Usagi, she’s forever home with Lissiane. Once the sweet mama cat made it inside, her bond with her new human family was set for life.
