Sometimes pets come into our lives in the most unexpected ways—but once you see them, you know it’s meant to be.
That was the case for one man, who discovered a surprise in his backyard that turned into the sweetest friendship.
“She was the runt and the mom abandoned her after moving the litter,” he wrote.
He dug the cat out and took her inside, and decided to care for the cat, essentially taking over the role of her “mother.”
She was so young she didn’t open her eyes for 10 days. The man had to bottle feed her and warm her bed every two-and-a-half hours, even if it meant coming home or waking up in the middle of the night.
After 11 days, the kitten opened her eyes and looked up at him in gratitude:
He kept the kitten, and soon she made herself at home and grew up fast.
And of course, she stayed loyal and loving to her new owner, giving him plenty of cuddles and affection:
The man and the kitten have been together ever since, and moved together to a new city.
She’s grown up to be a “very pretty and very loving cat.”
It’s a beautiful friendship, but one the man never expected—a reminder that sometimes life works out in mysterious ways.
“I never wanted a pet but I’m glad I have her,” he wrote.
Thank you to this man for taking care of this poor cat! We know she will love you forever.
