These precious cats are not only the best of friends, they are also sisters. After being abandoned together, it was their sisterly bond that helped get them through the tough times. The way one sister is comforting the other is so precious that we can hardly stand it! The good news is that these two sweeties have found their forever home…together.

With about 8 million cats entering shelters every year across the U.S., it is so important to adopt rather than shop for a new feline friend. It is equally important to spay or neuter your cat once you do adopt if it hasn’t already been done. By doing both of these things, you can help reduce the homeless pet population and give opportunities to other cats that are waiting for a forever home.

If you are not in a position to adopt but are looking for other ways to help, then consider fostering a cat. This helps the cat being fostered, the shelter with space, and allows them to save another animal in need. Another way to assist in curving the numbers of homeless cats is by volunteering with local trap-neuter-release programs. This will make sure kittens are not born into homelessness and do not suffer unnecessarily. As always, educating others and spreading awareness is always an effective way to help animals.

Oh my goodness, this story made me cry, just hearing that these two sister kitties were rescued, and went home together! And that was BEFORE I watched the video! My family spent most of September going from shelter to shelter, searching for our lost cat, and he looks just like the orange tabby kitten in this video. He disappeared from our front porch all of a sudden, totally out of character for him, and just never came home. We did all the things one normally does, looking for their lost pets, walking the neighborhood, searching and calling for him, even searching outside our neighborhood, posting his info with numerous online lost pet sites and the microchip company. But it was the visiting the shelters in the valley that really tore my heart out, seeing so many desperate kittens and older cats needing homes, desperate to be rescued! My heart ached to take all of the cats I laid eyes on home with us, but just could not do so. My sister and I both felt, as it was getting more & more unlikely we would not find our missing boy the longer we looked, that we would eventually go and adopt a shelter cat once we had grieved the loss of our youngest.

Then, like a miracle, weeks & weeks after our cat went missing, a man living the next street over from us contacted us through the lost cat fliers we had distributed throughout the neighborhood, as he believed he had our cat trapped under his house. He told us he had seen a cat under his house for a few days several weeks before, and even put water out for him, as we were in the midst of a horrific heat wave at the time. But after he believed the cat had left the crawlspace, he blocked off the opening, to keep any other animals from getting under his house, unaware that our cat was still down there, and then became trapped. When he saw our flier, he decided to go check under his house, just to be sure, and when he opened up a panel, there was the same cat, and he believed it to be our lost boy. We hardly dared to believe it could be true, but we rushed over there. It took a few moments to spot him, but sure enough, there was our lost boy! He\'d lost a good five pounds, poor baby, but he was alive! He was so beyond thrilled to be found, and brought back home at last! He had always been a loving, physical-contact kitty, but became even more so upon his return home. We\'re so thrilled to have be reunited with our sweet boy, but my heart still hurts, thinking of all those cats in the shelters we saw. I wish more people would adopt shelter cats, and take home at least two, so the cats will have feline companionship. Two are always better than one!

BEST NEWS EVER!!! Separating them would have been a tragedy.
I\'d take them in a heartbeat. Anyone who believes that cats do not bond with people or other cats - please see this video <3

We have three littermates, and they still - after four years - make adorable cuddle-puddles every night. And it includes their Uncle Hootie, who\'s no relation, but helped them learn the ways of being cats :)
