Mimosa’s Story: A Tortoiseshell Mother Cat’s Love


This post is sponsored by Inspurrations and contains affiliate links*

Editor’s note: Mimosa’s foster mom, who wanted to remain anonymous, shared Mimosa’s story with me.

At the end of January, a very pregnant stray cat was brought to the local pound. She was a stray and had been wandering alone, trying to survive the bitter cold, until someone found her and surrendered her to the shelter. I knew her kittens would be vulnerable to infection at the pound, so as soon as the shelter staff called me, I rushed over to pick her up. The very next day, Mimosa’s five tiny kittens were born – as if she were waiting for a safe place to have them.


Weeks passed, and Mimosa’s kittens grew up strong and healthy. They went up for adoption in April and were all adopted quickly. Mimosa, however, had given all of her strength to her kittens and was left thin and exhausted. Her immune system was so compromised that her hair began falling out.


Mimosa was spayed and began to build up her strength. Now, her fur has grown back in, and her eyes are bright as she remembers how to play and be a kitten again. She was a wonderful mother, and now that all of her kittens have been adopted, she desperately wants a human family to be a part of.

Mimosa is about 2 – 3 years old. She’s an outgoing cat who loves attention and being around people. She loves playing with feather toys, and she gives kisses by rubbing her nose against your cheek (which I adore!). She has a sweet little voice and even likes to have her belly rubbed sometimes.


Mimosa is very proud that she has captured the feather toy

Mimosa can be adopted through Cat Adoption and Rescue Efforts in Richmond, Virginia. CARE will consider out-of-state adopters within a reasonable driving distance. Please visit Mimosa’s profile for more information about her. You can also spread the word about CARE’s adoptable cats through their Facebook page  and Instagram.

CARE put together this beautiful video about Mimosa and her kittens.

Let’s help find this beautiful girl a home! After all she’s been through, she deserves to find the wonderful family who is meant to love her.
