Fox and Alfie are 2 kittens born from 2 different mothers. Yet they created an extremely strong bond while living in foster care. A woman bereaved by the recent disappearance of her cat wished to open her door to them.
Lauren, a resident of Philadelphia in the US state of Pennsylvania, was saddened by the death of her beloved cat Leo. Since her departure in May 2022, Lauren felt a terrible void that she wanted to fill by welcoming a new cat into her home.
So she looked carefully at the social media pages of the Kitkat Playroom shelter with the aim of meeting her future furry companion.
This is how she discovered Fox, an adorable long-haired ginger kitten.
Fox had arrived in the association with his mother and brothers. The little family needed to recover from a hard life as stray cats.
Lauren wanted to adopt him, but had to wait until he was weaned. She therefore took her troubles patiently and followed her adventures carefully.
This is where Alfie entered the shelter. “The first thing I saw of him was biting his own tail and then he blamed himself for doing that. I thought he was the kind of crazy little guy for me,” Lauren told Love Meow.
She therefore sent an adoption request for the 2 furballs to Jen Mack, the founder of the shelter.
The reception volunteer in charge of Fox and Alfie was delighted to hear the news, because since their meeting, the 2 felines have not left each other. “It was like they both knew. They slept together constantly and had an indescribable bond despite not being from the same mother,” Lauren explained.
Fox and Alfie have therefore integrated their new home together. The duo is inseparable. The 2 young adults share their cozy basket when it’s time to rest after wild games.
“On their first night home, they snuggled up to us and purred for 12 hours straight. They slept soundly and showed total satisfaction,” Lauren said.
Fox and Alfie therefore enjoy today a life in a warm home. They fill Lauren with happiness.
