Kittens walked the street life together and now they help each other be brave and transform

Two wild kittens were rescued from life on the street together. They are strongly connected and help each other gain trust.

Earlier this year, Dorset Rescue Kittens (in Ontario, Canada) took in a number of feral kittens from a large colony of cats. Below them, two kittens, Cholua (calico) and Tabasco (brown tabby), clung to each other from the moment they were rescued.

As it turns out, they’ve been a bonded couple since they were tiny kittens. “We believe they are littermates, but we are not 100% sure,” said Cailey Seymour, founder of Dorset Rescue Kittens, on Love Meow.

With the help of volunteers, the kittens were transported to foster families. The feral cat groom who took care of Cholua and Tabasco wanted to make sure they stayed together as they had an unbreakable bond.

The calico and tabby were placed in a quiet, comfortable room to help them decompress. They immediately sought refuge behind some furniture because they were afraid of people and the new surroundings.

They didn’t let anyone near and were ready to fight tooth and nail. “Cholua would try to bite and Tabasco never came out of hiding,” said Cailey.

With plenty of good food that they found irresistible, the two slowly emerged from hiding and carefully began to explore their new excavations.

They were always traveling together as if they were taking care of each other. They had to adapt and adapt a lot, but keeping close all the time made them feel safe.

They felt more relaxed and ventured a little more out of their hiding place every day. After all, they allowed people to be around and were comfortable enough to keep an eye on their people.

When Tabasco saw Cholua having small pets here and there, he too began to warm up to the idea.

They were still shy and cautious, but whenever they were together they gave each other courage. They were tightly bound together and wrapped their tails around each other as they walked across the room.

“The spicy kittens came around and accepted the warm and cozy place.”

Her foster mother used her favorite things to win her over. “Cholua is obsessed with the laser pointer, while her brother Tabasco prefers food socialization.”

The two best friends grew bolder and calmer as they continued their daily outings around the house and positive interactions with their people.

They encouraged each other to try new things and even came up with the idea of ​​accepting love from their people.

“They’re finally starting to get around. They follow each other everywhere and need each other to feel safe. When one kitten does one thing, the other follows,” Cailey told Love Meow.

“They love grooming each other and cuddling on the couch and in their scratching post. Even when they were in the big colony, they did everything together.”

Cholua and Tabasco are getting more confident every day and have access to the entire care home. They enjoy taking lots of naps and trying them out one by one.

“When the time for adoption comes, they need patient owners who are willing to work with them while they continue to gain trust,” said Cailey.

“These kittens love treats and willingly accept affection when it comes to food. They begin to learn to want affection when it is not for food, but it is a work in progress.”

The calico and tabby have come a long way and no longer have to defend each other on the streets.

They love their VIP lives as pampered house cats and have been each other’s pillar throughout the process.
