In April, pregnant Ellie arrived at the shelter. She gave birth to six kittens in her foster home. Although she and her foster mom did all they could to help her kittens, none of them survived. Despite her sad circumstances, Ellie maintained her sweet, easy-going (yet sometimes kitten-ish) personality. She helped to care for all the foster kitties who passed through her foster home. Ellie must have known the perfect person would adopt her! Ellie moved into her forever home with a woman who lost her elderly beloved cat in April. Since both of their lives changed in a significant way in April, Ellie’s extremely fitting new name is “April.” She is giving and receiving lots of love in Germantown, MD.
