Miloh, the black and white cat, showed up at Sebastien’s house in Montreal, scrounging around for food. Sebastien, who owns four cats of his own, offered him some kibbles and water. The cat took the food and left, not to return until a few weeks later when winter was setting in. The cat was hungry and thirsty, so he returned to Sebastien’s porch in search of food.
Seeing the feline’s poor condition, Sebastien built an outdoor shelter and provided daily sustenance for the stray. The cat took refuge in the shelter to shield himself from the cold and began to let Sebastien approach him with food.
One day, the cat reappeared on the porch, looking damp and haggard. He was cold and hungry and wanted to be somewhere warm. Sebastien placed food near the door to coax him inside. Slowly but surely, the cat decided to give indoor life a try.
When Sebastien reached out to a local rescue organization, Chatons Orphelins Montreal, and offered to foster the cat, they named him Miloh. The rescue team was able to locate a microchip, but it wasn’t registered. They traced it to the pound where it was issued, but they had no information on the cat on file.
Celine Crom of Chatons Orphelins Montreal shared with Love Meow that “Miloh was left outside alone and no one has looked for him. He was very fearful but didn’t have a mean bone in his body. He was curious about everything happening inside the house.”
To help Miloh adjust to life inside, Sebastien recreated a shelter resembling the one on the porch that Miloh had taken a liking to. Miloh spent a lot of time sleeping in the cardboard box. Gradually, Miloh started exploring his new space, playing with toys, and asking for affection.
The once timid stray had transformed into quite the love-bug. To continue his socialization, a volunteer of the rescue organization, Anne-marie, welcomed him into her home. It was love at first sight for both.
Miloh showed his affectionate side by switching on his purr motor and rumbling non-stop. He followed his foster mom around the house, kneading away happily with his paws. Miloh became best friends with the resident cat, Pixie, and loves his new life where he has everything he’s ever wanted.
Miloh showers the family with purrs and snuggles during the day. At night, he cuddles up to them in bed and purrs into their ears. Anne-marie knows he’s where he belongs. “As soon as he got home for what was supposed to be a few weeks of foster care, I knew he would never leave,” Anne-marie shared.
Miloh came to the right house for help and ended up finding the perfect family to spend the rest of his life with.
