Two kittens were found near a park and were rescued just in time. They had a very special bond from the start.
Two months ago, Isabelle, from Montreal, Canada, was out for a walk near a park when she saw two tiny balls of fur on the street. Upon closer inspection, she found that they were hungry little kittens, covered in dirt and looking for food.
The mother cat was nowhere to be found. Knowing the weather was getting cold and that it would be difficult for the kittens to survive nature on their own, Isabelle decided to intervene. With the help of another good Samaritan, they were able to get the kittens to safety.
The kittens were around 5-6 weeks old, very shy and skin-and-bones. They longed for food as if they hadn’t eaten for a while. Volunteers went back to the site to look for more kittens and the mother but couldn’t find any.
Chatons Orphelins Montréal, a cat rescue in Montreal, took the brother and sister duo into their care. “The kittens (Pagnol and Poukie) were very shy and thin. The vet found that they had eaten plastic food wrappers to survive because they were so hungry,” said Celine Crom of Chatons Orphelins Montréal Love Meow.
The cat-like siblings were huddled in the clinic the whole time and didn’t want to leave each other.
After receiving treatment for various health problems, they went home with their carers Steph and Francis to continue the healing process in a comfortable environment.
After days of careful grooming, the kittens fully recovered from some stomach problems. Little Pagnol the panther kitten found confidence and his delightful squeaky voice.
They came out of their shells and relaxed together in their cozy, warm nest. The two ate together and slept at the same time as if they were bandaged at the waist.
After a much-needed bath, the kittens were free of dirt and debris. Their bellies were full and their personalities emerged.
Then they discovered her unbridled energy and insatiable appetite. “They felt so comfortable being pampered and gained weight and strength,” said Celine.
Poukie is a love bug who enjoys being close to her humans. She seeks hugs and has interesting options for beds like random boxes and drawers. Her brother Pagnol is the more sociable and wilder of the two. He doesn’t seem to have an off switch when he starts playing.
The kittens have been each other’s greatest support and closest confidante since the day they were found. They create all sorts of antics around the house as partners in mischief and are seldom separated.

“They are completely inseparable and do everything together,” added Celine.
“They are very playful and never want to miss the opportunity to have a good time. They like to climb the scratching post and can often be found upstairs in their person’s room and sleep together.”
At the age of three months, the two best friends are ready to embark on a new journey to their eternal home.
The rescue knew from the start that the two bound kittens had to stay together. They hoped that a special family would open the door for the lovable couple so they could always have each other.
After weeks of searching for the right home, a family found their way to them and it was the perfect match. “We are very excited that the kittens are being adopted together this week,” said Celine Love Meow.
After a difficult start in life, brother and sister have developed into beautiful kittens and will be able to enjoy their VIP life together forever.
