A dilute tortoiseshell was found as a stray and brought to Salem Friends of Felines (in Oregon) along with her newborn kittens. They were immediately placed in foster care with a volunteer to cater to their every need.
Momma Priscilla (estimated to be seven years old) was very attentive and loving to her kittens, but eager for affection from her human friends. "She would leave her babies for a bit to come get brushed and pet," Kayla, Foster Mom, told Love Meow.
After getting treated for a few health issues, the sweet cat mom lay happily with her kittens in their clean, warm nest, purring up a storm. "She was such a good mom. She was always so happy and sweet."

Once Priscilla realized that Kayla was there to help her with her babies, she began taking more time exploring her new abode.
She tried to inspect everything from her surroundings, sniffing and pawing around with so much curiosity. The sweet feline gave the cutest reaction when she discovered her own reflection from a bathtub overflow plate.
It didn't take long for Kayla to notice an endearing feature of Priscilla. The cat momma sports a cute little smirk on her face, and lets her tongue hang out when she is relaxed.
As it turns out, she is missing a few teeth, but it doesn't bother her a bit. She continues to be a beam of sunshine to everyone she comes across.

Priscilla gave her kittens undivided attention and made sure that they were kept clean from head to toe. After weeks in foster care, the protective mom finally felt comfortable enough to let her kittens go off the nest on their own.
As the tabby babies grew by leaps and bounds, their personalities quickly emerged.

The tortie began to seek more attention and pets from her foster mom when her kittens entered the rambunctious phase.
"She liked to hold my hand," Kayla added. "She makes some great biscuits (kneading) and can be a purr machine."
After passing all the feline skills to her precious kittens, Priscilla was content and ready to let her little ones spread their wings and fly.
She even discovered her inner kitten side and started to play more, enjoying being the center of attention.
"She is so gentle even when she plays. She is a beautiful, sweet and loving kitty," Kayla shared.
Priscilla has an adorable, quirky personality that always makes people smile. Sometimes, she will prop herself up to sit like a little human. She has an amazing range for poses.

Priscilla is now available for adoption and waiting for her dream home at Salem Friends of Felines (in Keizer, Oregon). She is happy when she gets visits from her human friends and greets them with her signature smile.
"She loves people and would love to relax in a peaceful home with her forever humans."
Priscilla has made some feline friends on the adoption floor and hopes that the right family will come along soon.
