Joyce, a stray cat who was pregnant, was taken to Oregon Friends of Shelter Animals (OFOSA) to start a new life. The kind staff members gave her the name Joyce and looked after her when she gave birth to a litter of kittens a few days later. One of her kittens was Erica, who was noticeably bigger and stronger than the others. The OFOSA cat foster coordinator, Christy, said that Erica was closely monitored and given extra care from day one. Erica looked just like her mother and the two were inseparable. Joyce was always there for Erica, responding to her every need and noise.

Erica’s brothers and sisters were unfortunate to have been born with a number of health problems. Despite the rescue center’s valiant attempts to care for them around the clock and help them recover, their health continued to deteriorate, leaving Erica as the only one left alive from the litter.
Joyce devoted almost all of her time to Erica, making sure she was well-fed, kept clean, and showered with affection. She monitored her every move and was quick to respond whenever Erica made even the slightest noise.

Joyce was constantly keeping an eye on her beloved kitty, Erica. However, when Joyce had to visit the dentist for some urgent dental work, the veterinarians believed that she would need some time alone to recuperate. But, upon returning home, Joyce immediately searched for Erica. According to Christy, Joyce couldn’t bear to be separated from her furry friend.
