A cat who waited her whole life to be indoors, is now living the dream life with her kitten.

A family who owns a remote farm near Montreal, Canada, started finding abandoned cats around their property, and the number increased over time. They took in those from the side of the road and tried their best to save them all.

Soon they found themselves unable to provide the care the cats needed, and sent out a plea for help. "Some of the cats were sick and others were injured due to fights," Celine Crom of Chatons Orphelins Montréal shared with Love Meow.

Julie, an animal rescuer, sprang into action when she learned about the difficult situation. She noticed that one of the cats had a cloudy eye and was covered in mats.

Julie was able to rescue all the cats and kittens with the help of humane traps, and transferred them to Chatons Orphelins Montréal. As it turned out, several cats were pregnant, including the one with the cloudy eye. All of them received medical attention before they were taken into foster care.

"The cat with long hair and a cloudy eye was named Remille. She weighed barely 1.3 kg, and was just skin and bones."

After removing all the mats and knots from her coat, Remille felt brand new and started purring up a storm. "She had an ulcer on her cornea and she could barely see out of that eye. She also tested positive for FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), but it didn't stop her from seeking attention and love."

Remille nearly doubled her weight after a few days, and her personality came out in full swing.

"She rested up and gained a lot of strength. She had a voracious appetite for food and pets," Celine shared. "Her foster mom pampered her with all the attention she wanted, and Remille started to really enjoy life and have fun."

The tabby girl went into labor one evening and gave birth to a litter of four. Three of them were extremely small. Despite their very best efforts to save them all, the biggest kitten, Hardy, became the sole survivor.

"The little boy has always been the one who put on the most weight and the strongest. At six weeks old now, he is still nursing and taking his bottle, and that's okay."

Remille, who just turned 10 months old, is so glad to have people step in to help raise her kitten, as she is still a young cat herself. She keeps Hardy clean and teaches him how to play.

She has been a ray of sunshine since she transitioned into indoor life. She is playful and affectionate, running after feather toys and following her kitten around the house.

Between play sessions, she will come up to her humans and get up-close and personal with them. "She likes to snuggle up to us for cuddles. She coos and chirps when she talks," Celine told Love Meow.

"Hardy the solo kitten is getting very active and curious. He has figured out how to groom himself, and is learning to play by imitating his mom."

Remille shows the tabby boy the ropes during the day and lets him comfort-nurse on her at night.

"After months of trying to survive the outdoors, Remille is so happy to be a kitten again in a safe home, and to be loved and spoiled."
