On April 18, my two younger sons and I had spotted a beautiful gray kitten. While we were playing with her, a man who lived in our townhouse complex asked us if she was our cat. We said no, and he told us that the kitten has just shown up in the complex about 4-5 days earlier and as far as he knew, she didn't have an owner. The weather started to get colder, so my sons and I always looked for her.
As of April 21, I hadn't seen her and had been getting worried. My sons and I had planned to go looking for her the next day (April 22), but my asthma was acting up and the cold weather was making breathing difficult, so I actually ended up being admitted the hospital at 4:30am on April 22. Turns out that not only did I have an asthma attack, I had pneumonia. Well, that put a damper on the plans of looking for her.
I came home from the hospital the next day (Saturday, April 23, my birthday), which was okay, but I had missed my birthday/Easter dinner since I was in the hospital most of the day. I knew that no one had had a chance to look for her, so I was resigned to the fact that she may not be around anymore.
On Easter Sunday (April 24), my boys were restless and they both went outside to play at different times. While they were outside, my mom called to check on me and see how I was feeling. My daughter had answered the phone and was talking to her. Just as she handed me the phone, my son, Michael, opened the front door and said, "Mom! We found Li'l Smokie!!" My daughter practically shoved the phone in my hand and ran outside to see her. After I was able to get off the phone with my mom, I went outside to the patio to see her. We thought she might have been pregnant. She was a little round in the middle and her teats were slighty pink and sticking out a bit.
My daughter and I were able to convince her dad (although very grudgingly) to let us bring her in so that we could get her spayed. We brought her to the vet on April 29 to be spayed. She came through the surgery with flying colors, though she was about seven weeks pregnant and she had six kittens in her. I wasn't comfortable with aborting the kittens, but she was still a kitten herself, and a tiny one at that. I didn't think she'd survive giving birth.
