A man that is allergic to cats found a little kitten all alone on the street. He knew he couldn’t leave the little thing there but because of his allergies couldn’t take him home, so he scooped him up and took him to Kēnya, a pet groomer, for help.
“He asked if I knew anywhere he could take a kitten that he found,” Kēnya told us. So she set up a place for the kitty in her shop and began making calls and searching online to see if anyone was missing a cat. “I even drove around the area where the man found him a few times to see if there were any missing cat posters for him.”
No one came forward to claim the kitten, and he didn’t have a collar or a microchip. So Kēnya took him home that and told her family he would be staying just for the night.
They decided to take him to a rescue group the next day, in hopes of finding him a good home. But the little feline had a different plan.
The ginger kitty loved everyone in the house, including the resident puppy and a cat named Baby Cat. “Everyone fell in love with him, but the sweetest love for him came from our puppy named Edward,” said Kēnya.
The kitten nuzzled up to puppy Edward and began to cuddle. It was love at first sight. “They acted like they were long lost brothers and immediately started playing and snuggling and just wanted to be around each other all the time.”
The older cat in the house had never been a fan of kittens but somehow it was different with this newcomer. It may be because they had similar markings on their coats because he took on the role of big brother, caring for him like his own family.
Kēnya continued to keep an eye on any Lost Pets posts online and at her local shelters. “A couple weeks have gone by now, and I still check for posts, but there has been nothing,” she said. By now no one in the family wanted to give him up, especially because of the bond he had formed with the other animals in the house in such a short period of time.
So Kēnya’s daughter named the kitten Popsicle, and he became a permanent part of their family. Perhaps, the kitten knew already that he had found his forever home the moment he walked through their door.
