Discarded Because She Is No Longer Useful To Her So-Called Family, They Soon Find Out She Is Also Heavily Pregnant!

Heavily pregnant shelter staff were told she was no longer a good fit for their family!

Alyssa, a flame point Snowshoe Siamese, was surrendered to OHS (Ohio Humane Society) by her family with the excuse that she was ‘no longer a good fit for her family.’ In reality, what they really meant is she was no longer useful.

The real truth was that Alyssa’s so-called family were breeders. Alyssa was four and a half years old, she had been surrendered with no vaccination history, she was covered in fleas, and to top it all off, heavily pregnant.

Another sad truth was Alyssa had eaten her previous litter, a sure indication of extreme stress and or fear.

At her current age, Alyssa may have had dozens of kittens, having lost the last litter, these breeders may have thought they were losing this income stream, so terrified Alyssa is discarded.

Alyssa’s hard life changed very quickly when she was fostered by Sheila @love2foster, with her kittens due in a couple of weeks.

Initially very shy she was prone to becoming overstimulated, very quickly tending to swat if she thinks your petting has gone a little too far. After one week though she had already made progress.

“Alyssa is becoming more comfortable here. She is willing to come out of her safe place (a box) when I am in the room,” Sheila told the Kitten Cat Post.

Soon she was coming out of her shell more and more. Doing a lot of exploring at night and even spending time in the room with real humans while waiting for her babies.

Alyssa and Sheila didn’t have to wait long! Soon three bouncing kittens were in the world, two boys and a girl!

“Who’s been waiting for the kitten reveal! Guess what we’ve been doing this Caturday”, Sheila siad.

Alyssa spent some time on pain killers after the birth but was doing really well. She spends most of her time with her kittens but does occasionally come out to eat.

“They are the softest marshmallows ever,” said Sheila of the kittens.

One thing that very quickly became clear with Alyssa, was that she didn’t like anyone picking up her kittens. The only reason she allowed it at all may have been because of the pain killers she was on.

“She lets me pick them up but watches closely and will reach for them if they are too far away.”

Gradually over time as she began to trust her human family. Sheila and her daughter Danielle were allowed to pick up the kittens more often, but could not hold on to them for too long.

The kittens went from strength to strength, growing very quickly, they ate as much as their bellies could hold.

Sometimes overindulging and getting the hiccups in the process.

It seemed possible, the kittens were actually still getting cuter and cuter.

Nearly always found together.

According to Sheila, the kittens were now sleeping around 20 hours a day followed by brief spurts of kitten fun and play.

The human family was also now allowed to handle the kittens without too much fuss. Though they were closely monitored at all times.

Then before anyone expected the kittens were weaned and Alyssa found herself back at OHS waiting for her forever home!

“I’m really going to miss Alyssa. She took excellent care of her kittens and protected them fiercely. When she was ready, she shared them with me,” said Sheila.
