Nancy was a pretty adolescent who become homeless when her family moved on July 1st, 2014 and left her behind. In the deep of winter last January (2015), I let her into my backroom – ostensibly separate from Maris, Jacob, and Gary – my other stray/SPCA cats. It was soon apparent she was pregnant – as Maris had been when she showed up on my balcony soon after July 1st in 2002. (July 1st in Quebec is Moving Day, and horrible people abandon pets all over the city that day, often in much worse ways than just letting them outside.) Maris had her kittens, I found homes for all of them back in 2002.
