There is nothing like a sweet kitten rescue story to brighten up even the dreariest of days, and this heartwarming story is sure to bring a smile to your face.

A stray black-and-white kitten, suspected to have wandered away from his mother and litter, was found in the middle of a country road as cars swerved around him. Luckily, a kind citizen stopped to rescue the baby. After inquiring at a nearby house and on social media with no luck and discovering the kitten was not microchipped, it was decided the little critter would temporarily come stay at the rescuer’s house until a forever home was found.


The family cat, however, had other plans in mind and claimed the baby kitten as his own! In this adorable photo, the orange tabby is undoubtedly saying “This one is mine.”

Even the family dog warmed up to the baby kitten, letting him snuggle and lounge on his bed.

These two are a beautiful match made in heaven — way too cute!

The kitten is learning how to be a cat by following his new big brother around everywhere and is being pampered with tons of hugs and kisses. The family has since decided to keep the little guy as their own.


This is a lovely example of why fostering and adoption are so valuable. Not only do animals enrich our lives, but they enrich the lives of other animals as well.
