A pair of little twin kittens came to their foster home hoping for a new chance and a better quality of life. Despite their limitations and the problems, they apparently went through, the two shared a very special bond that united them and gave them sufficient strength.

The Animal Welfare League’s Animal Rescue Center in Arlington, Virginia had rescued a litter of orphaned cats in need of foster care. Among the litter were the two siblings, who were in poor health, requiring extra care and attention around the clock.

Lauren Strycula, a volunteer in the organization’s parenting program called the Kitten College program, was made aware of the case and offered to help.

She and another volunteer worked as a team to make sure every kitten in the litter had a chance to fight for a normal life. But the volunteer was mainly responsible for the recovery of the two brothers; I was determined that these two felines would move forward.

Lauren told Love Meow:

“I picked up Jace and Jax when they were eight days old. Saving kittens is really hard, and it’s only possible when everyone is working together and helping each other.”

The first week with the little ones was full of ups and downs, sometimes it was fine and other times it was complicated, but they continued to fight for their lives. They struggled to bottle feed and drink, and they also had health issues that prevented them from getting enough rest to recharge their batteries and continue their fight.

Despite all of this, it seemed like the brothers were clinging to each other all the time for comfort and strength to thrive.

Lauren said:

“We immediately started providing medication for the two kittens and luckily it was only a few days before things started to improve. I could see a noticeable difference in their moods and the guys finally started to gain weight significantly.”

Little Jace, the weaker of the two, bounced like a champ and quickly successfully grabbed his bottle and drank like there was no tomorrow. His energy immediately shifted to his brother Jax, as he became very motivated to eat and began to eat more than usual.

It was remarkable that the kittens’ recovery was underway and their will to live outweighed any problems they might have.

Lauren said:

“She could have cried when she saw the first twitch in Jace’s ear.”

The inseparable sibling duo began to gain weight and gain a lot of strength, so their unique personalities began to shine.

Lauren said:

“We affectionately call Jace our little nutcase because he has the dumbest personality. We always laugh at their silly sleeping positions and outrageous antics.”

While Jace is the most mischievous and constantly asks for affection, Jax is characterized by being the most loving and has a very gentle temperament. Despite having very different personalities, the two brothers complement each other perfectly, as if they were Yin and Yang.

Physically they are very similar, but there are some characteristics that set them apart.

Lauren said:

“You can distinguish Jax from his twin brother because he has a perfect triangle like a glow and a white left ear. Jace’s glow is a little crooked (like his hat) and his right ear is white.”

Siblings have started breastfeeding to make them feel comfortable, a habit very common among orphaned kittens, but one that is detrimental to both of them. It was therefore necessary to nip the problem in the bud and find a solution to this behavior as quickly as possible, to avoid problems in the future.

While keeping an eye out for the little ones, Lauren was well helped by a stuffed animal they named Snuggle Lamb, and placed it between them. This was the best solution, because that way there was no need to separate them, since they could continue to do their things together without hurting each other.

Jace and Jax

Now four weeks old, Jace and Jax let go of this bad habit as they move on to the next stage in their lives. Jace, the most unruly and mischievous boy, keeps his brother very busy and tired, he always wants to play and doesn’t take no for an answer.

Lauren said:

“The boys are constantly fighting with each other. When I look at his bed, I see a herd of shaking legs. They are the best friends in the world and do it all together.”

For now, the twins will continue to thrive in their foster home and Lauren is very proud of how far she has come.
