An adorable orange kitten found in a box enjoys helping other rescued kittens like him thrive.
A family living on a farm north of Montreal, Canada, found a cardboard box with an orange tabby cat and two other smaller kittens inside. Unfortunately, one of the smaller kittens did not survive despite efforts to save him.
The family decided to approach the local Chatons Orphelins Montreal rescue center, seeking help for the two remaining cats and that they could find a home that would take care of them.
Chatons Orphelins Montreal staff told Love Meow:
The family has come a long way at night to bring the kittens to us, so that they have a chance of survival.
Orange Kitten Helps Other Cats Like Him Thrive
The rescue center staff added:
We discovered that the two kittens are not from the same litter. The orange kitten was estimated to be four weeks old and the gray kitten still had the umbilical cord.
The cats were named Ron (orange) and Ginny (grey). Ron always wrapped his arms around the little gray kitten when it was nap time, and Ginny always had her eyes closed and clung to Ron for warmth and security.
The rescue center said:
Their adoptive mother bottle-fed them every two hours throughout the day. They perked up and started gaining weight.
Montreal Orphan Kittens added:
Ron was very young, but he was a big help for the other kitten and tried to take care of him. Although he was separated for three weeks, Ron was with Ginny the whole time, covering for her. hugs and kisses.
Around the same time, the rescue center received a little feline named Scottie who was eager for a feline friend. The kitten had stayed with its brothers inside a wall, Scottie was the only kitten that managed to get past it.
Thanks to the care of her adoptive mother, the kitten managed to overcome a series of health problems and was ready to have a second chance at life.
When everything was ready for her to meet other kittens, they decided to introduce her to Ron, who was the same age as her. Ron approached his new friend and took him under his protection and care.
Ron was very energetic and encouraged Scottie to play and fight, giving him big hugs like he knew what the tuxedo cat needed.
Ron was getting quite restless and loud. He was really happy and very excited to have a new friend to unleash his unbridled energy and madness with.
The rescue center shared:
If we try to find Scottie, we’ll also find Ron. They do everything together and Scottie is so happy to finally have a friend to play with.
For his part, Ron continues to take care of other adoptive cats; he is happy to have a friend like Scottie to play with all day and take a cuddly nap. These felines had a rough start, but now they don’t have to worry about food and a warm bed and are sure to have a wonderful life.
