Let’s be honest, some cats genuinely do not get along with other cats. Some adult cats who have spent their lives alone are unable to adjust to living with other cats, and bringing a new feline into the home could stress the cat out if they aren’t keen.
But what happens when you have no choice but to bring a new cat into the home? Well, that’s exactly what happened to Imgur user, leftofthenormal. When their family found a tiny homeless kitten in their neighborhood, they knew leaving the defenseless animal alone was out of the question. The family adopted the kitten and decided made her a permanent part of their family.
The family wasn’t quite sure how the kitten, now named Rosaline, and their older cat Frank would do together. Would the two get along? How would Frank handle the new member of the family?
The family introduced the two felines and couldn’t believe what happened next. Little Rosalina immediately ran to Frank and started nursing. Not knowing what to do, Frank patiently laid with Rosalina.
Once the initial shock wore off, Frank loved having a new little buddy. Frank happily assumed the official role of Cat Dad to Rosalina!
Now the two are the best of pals! Frank may be confused as to why Rosalina is trying to nurse him, but he purrs away and allows Rosalina to try anyways.
The pair are now inseparable!
CuddleFest is in full swing with Frank and Rosalina!
Once living on the streets, Rosalina now has a new dad and a human family to call hers. So sweet!
We are so glad this pair has one another and we hope they share many more cuddle sessions in the years to come!
If you’ve ever thought about adding a feline to your family and are in the position to adopt another cat, there are many benefits to doing so. While cats are known for being solitary creatures, they do, in fact, enjoy companionship. Regardless of what most people think, cats are social animals who thrive in bonded pairs. There are so many cats living in shelters who are in need of a forever home. You have the opportunity to save a life and give a lonely animal a lot of happiness!
Even if you cannot foster or adopt, you can still help kittens. Participate in your local trap-neuter-release program to ensure that no unwanted kittens are born or use your social media accounts to raise awareness about the importance of adoption and spaying or neutering your pets.
