A ginger little cat who was found in the city, fortified with a tuxedo cat who was dismissed by his mother.
A cat was spotted meandering the roads of Liverpool (UK) early October when a few understudies ran over the scared minimal wanderer.
He was distant from everyone else without a mother in sight and nobody came to guarantee him. The Good Samaritans carried him to the RSPCA Wirral and Chester branch for an opportunity at a superior life. The terrified little kitty was ravenous, a piece messy and needing a great deal of TLC.
Anthony Joynes, a RSPCA Inspector and animal rescuer, lovingly named the little bundle of fur Lennon after the street (John Lennon Drive) where he was found. The kitten was too young to be out on his own, and had he not been found, he might not have made it through the night.
The ginger and white kitten quickly warmed up to his rescuers and felt so much better after getting a full belly and a warm bed to sleep in.
Upon arrival, he was estimated to be around four weeks old and needed to be bottle fed around the clock. Despite all the attention he got from his caretakers, the kitten craved a constant companion.
Lennon was placed in the good hands of diligent staff members at the RSPCA, who at the time, were also caring for another tiny singleton.
A tuxedo kitten was just a newborn when he found himself alone without a mother’s love. His feral cat mom didn’t have any milk supply and rejected him. Staff immediately stepped in to help so the feline baby could be hand-reared every two hours.
The little kitten was brought back from the brink. He relished feeding time with his caretakers and always ate to his heart’s content.
Knowing that singletons could benefit tremendously from having a friend, staff decided to introduce the two kittens. They quickly took to each other and started snuggling. It was love at first sight.
“We introduced him to Lennon as we were helping feed them both. The pair just hit it off,” Kay Hawthorne, branch manager, shared with Love Meow. “They play together and cuddle up together. They get on so well it is really sweet.”
Lennon has since taken on the role as big brother to his tuxedo buddy, aptly named Ringo, and will wrap his arms around him for cuddles.
Despite being smaller, Ringo can wrestle with the bigger kitty and completely hold his own.
With a buddy to keep each other company, the kittens are thriving. In just two weeks, they have doubled in size and tripled in energy.
When they are not play-fighting, they are napping in an adorable cuddle-puddle. The two best friends constantly fill their room with the sweetest purrs.
Lennon is getting more playful and rambunctious each day and his buddy is keeping up like a champ. The tuxedo boy has found his footing and is working on perfecting his gait.
