A family tries to find a new home for a rescued stray kitten that someone brought to their house, but their cat had other plans and adopts it, instead!
Sorin Popa had just moved in with his girlfriend, their cat Abyzou, and a dog named Dante at their new home in Romania.
They had just settled in when they heard faint meowing from outside. The couple quickly went out to find the source of the noise as it sounds rather pitiful.
Soon enough, the couple found a frightened little kitten hiding under a vehicle at the nearby parking lot. The kitten was so frightened that it would even try to run away each time they tried to approach it. They had no choice but to leave it behind.
They were quite happy to learn that their neighbor managed to save the cat the following day. But just a day later, the little kitten was back in the street again as that couple’s cat refused to accept it – and the couple had to let it out to save its life. Poor kitten.
“We decided to rescue the kitten and try to find her a loving family. After a long hour of hiding under the car, my girlfriend finally got her out to safety,” Sorin said.
Shaking with fear, the skin-and-bones kitten snuggled into his girlfriend’s jacket. But it was too scary to let them touch it.
Once they arrived at home, it scampered to the back of the fridge and refused to go out. So, the couple put food and water near the fridge.
“She stayed there for three days and was scared of every sound and movement in the house. She would only go out at night to eat or drink water when no one was around,” Sorin explained.
The couple managed to catch it again and brought it to the vet. They initially planned on helping it feel better, then finding it a new home.
But when they brought the kitten back home, their cat was waiting – and it was ready to adopt the little creature! Abyzou took the kitten in like a mother figure.
Soon, it won’t leave her side. By the end of the day, one would think they’re the best of friends!
“From the beginning, Abyzou would let the kitten play with her toys and even eat from her plate. We decided to keep her and name her Shax,” Sorin said.
Abyzou even taught the kitten how to befriend their dog, Dante.
Soon, the three are inseparable – it seems like Shax got the two wrapped around her tiny fingers! Shax sleeps in Abyzou’s arms but is also a favorite friend of their dog.
It was soon apparent that the two older house pets had adopted this newbie. So, the couple decided to keep the kitten, even if they had only planned to nurse it back to health and have it for a few weeks.
Under the tutelage of Abyzou and Dante, Shax blossomed into a confident, beautiful cat. Perhaps it also helped a lot that she knows she’s never going to worry about food or shelter anymore…
