Shelby, a beautiful two-year-old cat, was sadly abandoned right before she was due to give birth to a litter of kittens. A kind stranger took her in and looked after her while she nursed her babies, before trapping the litter and taking them to a local shelter.
The Purrfect Pals rescue group in Arlington, Washington was able to get all the kittens into foster care immediately. However, whilst they were at the vet arranging for Shelby to be spayed, they were shocked to find that Shelby was already pregnant with another litter.
Expectant mama, Shelby was taken kindly in by John from The Critter Room whilst she awaited the arrival of her new babies.
On the 25th of August 2017, Shelby gave birth to four adorable kittens, however, sadly only one survived. The tiny kitten, named Sparky, was fighting for life and soon after she also passed away.
On the day Sparky passed, much to everyone's surprise, Shelby gave birth to a fifth kitten!
Out of nowhere, four days after the rest of the litter had been born, the tiny surprise kitten was born in the car on the way home from the vet. She was healthy, loud and ready to nurse with her mama.
The miracle kitten was named Lizzie, after the Ford Model T.
