Stevie

Stevie

February 16, 2021

We adopted our little girl, Stevie (formerly Magic) in November 2020 – a few weeks after we lost our beloved boy, Floyd (whom we adopted as Scooter from Toronto Humane Society in 2009) to cancer.

She was surrendered as a stray and, and unbeknownst to everyone at the time, Miss Stevie was already carrying a litter of kittens. But we were patient (sort of) while she spent time with a wonderful foster family who cared for her while she nursed her babies. They also helped her overcome her under socialization.

Fast forward to January 5, 2021 when we finally got to bring home an incredibly timid and scared little girl. But by the following Thursday she had already begun eating from our hands, meowing (the sweetest little noise!), and rubbing up against us for pets. We let her out of her sanctuary room the next day to
explore the rest of the house and she hasn’t gone back.

She’s since become a little purr monster who loves to eat and play and has taken over our entire home in the best possible way. She’s also helping to heal two broken hearts in a way only a fuzzy little family member can.

Thanks to every single Toronto Humane Society member who helped us along the way.
