We’ve all heard stories about people committing selfless and heroic acts to save animals in distress, but this story about a man who saved an orphaned kitten in his backyard is really something special. This selfless act won him a friend for life!
20. The Man and the Kitten
Meet the young man who saved a helpless kitten from his very own backyard!
19. An Odd Sound
This story about a young man saving a kitten exploded on social media when he posted about his new friend. It all started when he had heard an odd sound coming from his backyard and so, he decided to investigate.
18. Meowing in the Backyard
There was a meek sound coming from the fenceline. As he got closer, he determined that it was meowing.
17. Left Behind
There was a kitten who was left in a hole where the man’s rock garden was along the fenceline of his backyard. He frantically moved the rocks out of the way and brought the kitten out of the hole. She was so tiny and helpless. She appeared to be a runt who must have been left behind when the mother moved the rest of her litter elsewhere.
“Found this little one in my backyard in a hole under the fence,” said the young man in his post. “She was the runt and the mom abandoned her after moving the litter.”
16. A Warm and Cozy Place
After rescuing the kitten, the man dedicated his time to giving her the best care. He placed her in a box with a heating blanket to keep her warm and cozy. This is when he decided to give her a name…
15. He Named Her ‘Baby’
He gave her the name ‘Baby’. He woke up early every morning and even throughout the night to check on his Baby and feed her. He also came home from work every 2 hours or so, to feed Baby from a bottle.
14. Only Weeks Old
He mentioned in his post, that “She didn’t open her eyes for 10 days.” Baby was only weeks old when he found her, so she was not yet able to open up her eyes. But on day 11, she finally did!
13. When She Opened Her Eyes
After giving Baby so much love and attention, she finally popped open her eyes and gazed upon her rescuer. Instantly, it was love at first sight. Baby was smitten with the young man! But with her new eyes, she also became a bit of a handful!
12. Exploring Her New Home
As soon as she could move around, she was off exploring the house. She was constantly on the move until she found one of her favorite spots to relax in!
11. Sunbathing Kitty
Baby absolutely loved to spend time lounging in the sun. The young man snapped this picture, because he just couldn’t get over how small she still was after continuous feeding and care. She certainly was the runt of the litter! Just look at how she compares in size to this rolled up ball of socks!
10. One of Her Favorite Spots
Now that she’s grown older, she has filled out some more and become a healthy cat, all thanks to the love from her human dad. She shows so much love and gratitude to her hero dad. You can tell she’s quite comfortable with him as she naps on his shoulder.
9. Cozying Up With Dad
The pair have daily naps and cuddle time together. Just about every time dad gets cozy on the couch, Baby will pounce on him and make herself comfortable. She constantly demands scratches and love from him.
8. Needy Baby Misses Her Papa
Baby gets especially needy when her dad returns from work. He mentioned that “She always pays special attention to me when I get back from a work trip.” She doesn’t like when he leaves her for more than a day.
7. The Response to His Rescued Kitten Post
When he posted Baby’s photos online, people when absolutely crazy. They were in love with the pair and the inspiring story of the man who rescued this little baby. People from all over the world were writing to him and leaving comments like:
“That cat loves you”
“Oh. My. God. *deep manly squeal*”
“Kitten vs the size of the laminate squares made me go mushy a little bit.”
6. Meowing Her Way Into His Life
Although the young man had stated that he had never wanted a pet, he was so glad that this little kitten “meowed” her way into his life. He doesn’t know what he would do without her now that he has her. And, we would have to say that it looks like the feeling is mutual!
This young man’s story is one of thousands out there! There are so many inspiring stories about humans going out of their way to ensure the safety and well-being of animals.
Check out these images of people saving animals:
5. Piglet’s New Wheels
This poor little piglet lost his hind legs but luckily he had some very special humans to look after him. The piglet was fashioned with a new set of legs, or wheels rather, to get him back up and at it again! Thanks to the help from his human friends, he was able to rock and roll!
4. Heroic Human Saves Baby Deer
This fawn was being swept away by the current in this flooded area when a man courageously dove into the angry waters after her. Amazingly, he emerges victoriously here with the fawn in hand!
3. Firefighter Becomes an Even Greater Hero
Firefighters have one of the toughest jobs out there. They battle smoke and flame to save those in need and sometimes those in need aren’t always humans. This little pup was trapped inside of a smoke-filled house until the firefighter swept him up in his arms and rushed him out of the house to safety. Now time to get him all cleaned up and hydrated!
2. Back Out to Sea
This man was enjoying a day relaxing at the beach when all of a sudden a dolphin came too close to shore. The dolphin rode the waves a little too far into the beach and ended up getting himself beached on the sand. With no current to drag him back out to sea, he was trapped there. The man quickly rose to action and lifted the dolphin from the sand and returned him to the ocean.
1. Young Hero
Hero’s come in all shaped and sizes. They’re not always adults, but sometimes young children. Children know how to recognize, just as well as adults do, when someone is in trouble. Just take a look at this boy bravely carrying a dog through his flooded village to safety.
We hope this story of the rescued kitten and the heartwarming actions of people being everyday heroes has left you with a feeling of happiness! You would probably agree that it’s certainly reassuring to see that there are such amazing people out there!
