Evolene's incredible story shows us why it is SO important to spay and neuter.
We first saw Evolene when we were starting a new Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) project at a farm that had become a dumping ground for unwanted cats. We were alarmed because she looked so emaciated, and had a giant, pregnant belly. We immediately brought her in and did everything we could to get her healthy and give her babies a chance. She was getting stronger every day, and we were hopeful that we had rescued her in time to save her and her babies.
Tragically, we were wrong. Evolene gave birth for the last time, and all five of her beautiful kittens died shortly after they were born. THIS is the tragic reality of cat overpopulation. This happens every day, in every neighborhood around the world, but most of the time we don’t see it happen.
What shocked us even more was that Evolene went back into heat less than two weeks after giving birth. She would have been pregnant again less than two weeks after giving birth, and her body would not have been able to survive it.
We know Evolene's story has been eye-opening and heartbreaking to so many people around the world. It certainly broke our hearts. We hope she will inspire you to take action to help the feral cats in your own neighborhoods. There are so many ways to help - volunteer, start or join a TNR program, foster, adopt, donate, advocate.... YOU can prevent cats like Evolene from having to survive so much tragedy.
Thankfully, there is a happy ending ahead for Princess Evolene. We are continuing to do everything in our power to get her healthy, and her condition has improved dramatically. She's not at 100% yet, but she is feeling SO much better. We removed five abscessed teeth and spayed her, and are working on getting her decimated gastrointestinal system functioning properly again.
As you can see in this video from today, she is looking and feeling great, and will be ready soon for a human of her very own to love forever. <3 We are now officially accepting applications to adopt her. If you're interested, please read the rest of the post and then apply at if you think you are her purrfect match.
Evolene is delightfully sweet, loving and entertaining. She's about six years old. She will thrive in a quiet home without small children or other cats, where she can be the only pampered Princess. She is currently on a special diet, and may need to continue that on a long term basis. Like any cat, she will need responsible vet care and checkups. We are hopeful that she has a long, healthy, happy life ahead of her, but need to monitor her a little longer before we can say that with confidence. We believe in being VERY up front about these things so potential adopters can make informed decisions, and are prepared for any special needs she might have.
Thank mew SO much to everyone who has fallen in love with this tiny, abandoned, unwanted, "lost cause" semi-feral cat. She has SO much love to give, and she was absolutely worth saving. <3
It was Evolene and Corsica's births that brought me to follow TinyKittens. It is wonderful to see how much better Evolene is doing!
I wouldn't be able to take her but I'm doing my part in my neighborhood. I have a live trap and most of the neighborhood strays have a tipped ear. Our local shelter does the TNR for free.
I first learned of Tinykittens with Miss Evo & Corsi. I watched day & night & fell in love with them & TK. I'm so happy to see Evo getting healthier day by day!! I literally cried at times & certainly after the birth & loss of her little babies. But, now I cry tears of pure joy! I know Evo has a purrrfect home waiting out there just for her. As I watched Evo's story unfold I too was watching a momma give birth & I'm happy to say all 4 babies are doing great. I'm careful in choosing loving homes & momma will stay with me forever & be spayed. So from my 4 new babies to TK thank you for ALL that you do!! I am a furrrever follower, educator & supporter. ♡
Welcome back, Evolene!
Evolene had major surgery about a month ago to remove five abscessed teeth and be spayed, and has been recovering in foster care with Auntie Kimsies.
