Opening your home to a homeless animal is one of the most rewarding things that you can do. Especially when that animal is a helpless orphan, too young to make it on the streets alone. This is just what Imgur user MetalCupcake did when they found a lost kitten crying in a bed of flowers, clearly in need of help.

The kitten, who came to be known as Mr. Duo Mewell was in terrible shape when his family found him. He was severely malnourished and covered with fleas. Luckily for this little guy, his entire life was about to change.


Poor Duo was so tiny and frightened, it didn’t look like he would have lasted long on his own. It’s a good thing that his new family was kind enough to offer him a better life! 


For three weeks, his new parents spent every waking tending to his every need. Kittens this tiny need constant care and feedings every few hours. But sure enough, this little guy has filled out and cleaned up. As you can see he’s now performing the cat duties of claiming his spot on the computer. 

Now that he has gotten this whole jumping thing down, this little fella has become an expert at jumping on the bed.

After winning over the humans, he got to work on his cat siblings.

Soon, he and his sister were cuddle buddies!

When you are this cute, you can sleep wherever you want. This looks like a good a spot as any.




Life is difficult on the streets is difficult for any animals, but lucky for this little guy, he can leave all of those bad memories behind. This heartwarming story of animal rescue is proof  that love saves lives, so if you are considering adding a new furry friend to the family – be sure to adopt!
