Man Finds a Tiny Kitten Behind a Toolshed Without a Mother Cat in Sight


When Jack ventured to the tool shed that fateful day, he never anticipated that he would become an unexpected hero. Here’s what happened.

As he explored behind the shed, he stumbled upon something quite unusual: a tiny, abandoned gray kitten, with no mother in sight.

The poor fluff was approximately a month old, barely tipping the scales at a pound. He was all alone, left to fend for himself.

Jack scooped up the little guy, brought him home, and reached out to his wife, Kathy. Understandably, the kitten was in pretty rough shape. Kathy said:

“He was curled up in a little ball with his eyes squeezed shut. Jack thought he was hurt because he saw what ended up being his one white foot. It’s a miracle he even saw him behind a ladder leaning against the shed.”

Without delay, they rushed him to the vet to determine what had happened to him. It seemed as though the poor kitten had taken a dangerous tumble down the cliff, landing behind the shed.

Thankfully, he had no serious injuries. After receiving the vet’s care, Jack and Kathy decided that it would be a good idea to adopt him. They named him Teddy and welcomed him into their humble home.

However, Teddy wasn’t the only feline in their household. Two weeks prior to his arrival, the couple had adopted another cat, Olive.

Their fervent wish to become cat parents was generously granted – by being doubled!

When Teddy met Olive, he became instantly attached. In no time, he formed a deep bond with his new sister, much like a kitten would with its mother.

Olive’s “motherly instinct” was great, especially given the fact that she was still a kitten herself. Kathy shared:

“She smelled him and started cleaning his face right away. She didn’t mind him following her around 24/7.”

The two felines did everything together: grooming, playing, napping, and exploring every nook and cranny of Jack and Kathy’s home. The two kitties were inseparable.

Since Teddy was still so young, the couple tried to bottle-feed him. However, because he was following his sister all the time, looking up to her in every aspect, it didn’t take him long to learn how to eat on his own.

For him, Olive was an excellent teacher and the best older sister he could have asked for.

Even though Teddy’s early days were rough, the rest of his life was undeniably sweet – all thanks to his forever humans and his lovely sister Olive!
