Kittens rescued from the cold, friendly cat who needed a buddy, now they have made their dream come true

Three tabbies befriended a kitten who needed a buddy. They thrived together in foster families.

A North Carolina resident found a litter of tabbies near her home. The kittens felt cold and rushed to their local rescue, Sparkle Cat Rescue, for help.

“The temperatures were very cold. They had a lot to warm up,” said Sarah Kelly, a rescue volunteer. “They got off to an incredibly difficult start and were left outside in a cold moment.”

Sarah worked tirelessly to bring the kittens’ body temperature back to normal, but the little ones faced other health problems.

Unfortunately, one of the kittens didn’t make it, but the rest of the litter struggled hard and pulled through after days of 24/7 careful grooming.

The kittens (Howie, Mac, and Vee) bounced back on their paws. They enjoyed snuggling up together in their comfortable nest and always had a large cuddly toy to keep watch and keep them company.

“We were very fortunate to have the incubator for these little ones as they were so cold when ingested and had to deal with low body temperatures.”

Once the kittens were out of the woods, their personalities emerged. They became little mischief-makers and were constantly planning their next buffoon.

A few weeks before her arrival, another kitten, a singleton named Bo, was found all alone without a mother. He was in dire need of maintenance and a lot of TLC. Sarah took him in and nursed him back to health.

Before it was medically clear to him to meet other carers, he was given a lot of attention and a few cuddly toys so that he would not feel alone. But nothing beats a warm body and the comfort of a friend.

Once he was ready to mingle with other kitties, he was more adamant than ever in having a buddy his size to play with. When the Tabbies moved into their upgraded Kitty Suite, Sarah introduced Bo to the trio.

They hit it off quickly, as if Bo had always been part of their family.

The four began chasing each other, wrestling with their mighty little claws, and sharing toys and beds.

The tabbies took Bo into their adorable crew and took him under their wing. They took him to all of their slumber parties and treated him as their own.

With the help of the other kittens, Bo was able to socialize and improve his feline skills. He mimicked his foster siblings when they played and learned to have limits.

They would attack each other and fall asleep, wrestling over the same toy.

When the kittens were ready for their next chapter in life – their forever home – all four quickly found their perfect match.

Mac and Vee, the married couple, were welcomed into a wonderful home together.

“They’re inseparable and delightfully connected from cuddles to snacks, adventures and adoption days,” shared Sarah.

Howie, who has now been renamed Catsidhe, has stolen the hearts of a family and now has a dog brother every day to deal with.

“He’s such a caring little guy. He takes good care of us and is so loving and cuddly,” wrote Catsidhe’s family.

Bo has found the family of his dreams and can now get cuddles and pets upon request. “His playful chirps and sweet purrs bring so much joy to our household,” wrote Bo’s mother.

After everything these kittens have been through, they blossom into beautiful cats with their happy aftermath.
