Stray Kitten Finds His Best Friend
A tiny homeless kitten strayed into the heart of a cat lover. “This stray kitten eluded me for a week and a half until (one) night. He couldn’t be sweeter,” said her human via reddit.
He was a stray that was probably wandered off from his cat mother. “I have managed to corner him and get him to eat but I could never get close enough to grab him with out worrying about hurting him. I began leaving food but it was obvious the other strays were eating it. Finally I was walking out with his food and he was sitting high up on a post. I picked him up off of it but he was just bones and flesh and couldn’t put up much of a fight. He has been wonderful ever since. Big appetite. Adventurous. Mostly naps. Loves to snuggle/nuzzle/be near my fiancé and I.”
After treating the kitten’s cold since he had been out in the rain, they introduced him to their beloved cat Tyrol. The relationship was rocky at first. “Especially as the new kitten quite promptly took to us, robbing Tyrol of our usually less divided attention.” But the kitten, whom they dubbed Brak, was very eager to win Tyrol’s affections.
“He worked up to it less gently than Tyrol was truly comfortable with but it seemed to be working…. They’ve had their tiffs but seeing how close they are (now) is really just amazing.”

Ongoing Friendship Between a Girl and Her Adorable Cats
This Kitten Thinks She’s A Pit Bull, And It’s Too Cute For Words
From the day she came home, Matilda the foster kitten has been obsessed with Lisa Revella Morabito’s pit bulls. And Morabito has a lot of pit bulls to capture this girl’s not-always-completely-useful attention.
"She tries to nurse off of Spike," says Morabito, "which is funny since he’s our only male dog."
Spike, the boy, is 9 years old, and, no, he is not lactating. Piglet is a deaf 8-year-old pit mix who was rescued from a dog fighting situation about seven years ago, and is now a therapy dog. Betty White, also a pit, is 7 years old and was brought to BARCS — the Baltimore animal shelter where Morabito is director of operations — about a year and a half ago with severe burns, and now visits schools as part of a humane education program.
Matilda turned up at BARCS as a skinny stray and Morabito incorporated the kitten into the household “to get her fattened up and socialize her,” she says.
It’s gone remarkably well. “Her cuddling with all of the animals is adorable” Morabito says. “Once the afternoon hits and the dogs have been fed and walked, they retreat for napping and Matilda joins them then for cuddling.”
