We come across a lot of really adorable cat stories – and we’re certainly not complaining. Just recently, there was the story of a family who rescued a stray kitten … only to have the little one adopt the family’s adult male cat as her own dad! There was also the viral story of a woman who made it through dental school thanks to the help her cat that still leaves us with watery eyes.
So when we came across a story of a tiny orphaned kitten who walked up to a couple asking for help, we were instantly touched.
As Imgur user spookydoc shared, the tiny kitten started following them like a duckling and like any animal lover would do, they instantly picked her up and took her home. “(She was) found in the woods, five weeks old,” spookydoc said.
The kitten is now named Chloe and once the couple got her home, she was given her very first blanket.
Chloe loves to stay close to her humans! The little one settled right into her new home.
Chloe’s first selfie! This is so going on Instagram.
Chloe also enjoys being carried around in her human’s bag. Smart cat!
She has known grown up to be a beautiful cat, with a safe and loving home to call hers.
People who lend a hand to animals in need, just like this couple did for Chloe, are what we like to call heroes. Here’s to many years of happiness, Chloe!
This story is certainly adorable but it also serves as a reminder of how we can help end the pet homelessness problem. 2.7 million dogs and cats are euthanized every day due to shelter overcrowding and limited funds, but we can all help. Saving one animal may not solve the pet homelessness problem for good, but for that one animal, their life will be changed forever. If you’re thinking of adding a loyal best friend to your family, please remember to always adopt and never shop.
