Two months ago, residents of a farm in Montreal, Canada, found two small kittens in a box on their doorstep. Inside were a ginger kitten, and a very tiny gray baby that the older one was hugging tightly. People immediately decided to help the little ones.
“The family drove a long way at night to bring the kittens to us, so they could have a chance at survival,” Chatons Orphelins Montreal shared with Love Meow.
They handed the kittens over to the Chatons Orphelins Rescue Center, where they were happily accepted. Rescuers determined that the ginger kitten was about 4 weeks old, and the gray was just recently born. Although the kittens were from different mothers, the ginger cat, named Ron, was always near the baby and cared for him as a little brother.
“We found out 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 her umbilical cord attached.”
They found a foster home for the kittens almost immediately. The foster fed them by the hour and took care of them in every way possible. Soon the little ones began to put on weight, and became noticeably more active, cheerful, and playful. Ron, the ginger, would not leave his little brother’s side either, spending all his time with him.
“Ron was very small himself but was a great help to the other kitten and tried to care for her. Despite being three weeks apart, Ron was with Ginny the whole time showering her with snuggles and kisses.”
A little later, the foster rescued another little cat who had joined the couple. She, too, was picked up on the street and went through a lot of hardship. All three kittens quickly became friends. She and Ron became best friends from day one and did everything together.
Ron really helped kitty Scottie become more confident and get stronger quickly. He supported her as well as his little brother. The love of this ginger wonder was enough for everyone.
“Scottie doesn’t like to be alone and will cry for attention until she finds company. She adores other cats especially Ron. Even though they aren’t from the same litter, they have been acting like siblings since the start.”
Now the babies are still growing up healthy and happy at the rehoming facility. Soon, when they are grown up enough, they will find permanent owners.
