Animal rescuers in North Carolina spotted these two young cats outside. They were snuggled up to each other and everywhere together, and it was as if they were brothers. The rescuers reported the cats to Murphy’s Law Center, and they were able to take the strays.
The older cat, named Gus, was seven months old. The younger cat, Spencer, was about four months old. Despite the difference in age, the cats were very close and constantly took care of each other.
“Spencer curled into him and rolled around happily. They slept, curled up together the whole way home,” Sarah shared with Love Meow.v
The staff at the rescue center immediately fell in love with these adorable little guys. Although the cats had lived a lot of time on the streets, they trusted people and asked for affection. The staff determined that Gus and Spencer were not biological brothers, but there was a surprisingly strong bond between them.
“Once we got there, and saw them in their side by side cages, we fell in love with their personalities. Gus, the older one (7 months) was so calm. He was just sitting there, purring, while Spencer (the younger one, 4 months) was trying to get out and get attention,” Sarah told Love Meow.
The two gentlemen were sent to a holding facility where they were getting used to the home environment. They were treated for fleas and other problems, for which the cats were very grateful. They still didn’t leave each other’s side the entire time.
The older Gus is a little more social than the younger Spencer. He also takes more care of him as his little brother and teaches him a few things. These two are now ready for a permanent family and are already looking for owners for them!
